Chelsea: Tuchel Reveals Why Lukaku is Better Than Neymar and Mbappe, Big Win, New Record Set

Thomas Tuchel’s boys handled the demolition job in quite a fashionable style, so much so that they silenced critics who claimed that the Blues have more emphasis on their defensive duties than on their offensive play. Mason Mount was the hattrick hero as well as assisting a goal to Calum Hudson Odoi in the first half.

Romelu Lukaku

As for the two PSG attackers, he admitted that working with them drained a lot of his energy because he was compelled to serve other duties which did not even concern him, like giving reports to friends and families about the players. Tuchel added that coaching in an environment where there is less pressure makes everything very easy in the long run, as is manifested by his magnificent run in the EPL.

“ Lukaku knows what I am doing at the club and he firmly believes that my way of working is going to yield results at the end of the season. He knows why I praise and reprimand him at times and that talks a lot about his personality. Having such players makes my work much easier.”

Calum Hudson Odoi

Calum Hudson Odoi becomes the 17th Chelsea player to score this season and this indicates just how well distributed the goal involvement average is at the club. Thomas Tuchel’s playing tactics are well balanced and this has proved to be Chelsea’s strength up until now. But should this be a cause of concern for the strikers?
