Chelsea are still in need of a winger despite having Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Hudson Odoi. Tuchel hasn't found the right rhythm from his wide players, and he has been force to look for an alternative solution. Last season, Pulisic had a promising performance, but his form was disrupted by injuries. Osman Dembélé, who has played under Tuchel and alongside Pulisic, has been the player tipped to provide a selection option for the German coach at West London.
when faced with a goal scoring opportunity, the Chelsea forward seems to be lacking a bit of composure, which has seen time waste such opportunities.
Speaking after Etihad loss, Tuchel said, "That you miss chances, there is no problem in that. Everybody wants to score from every big chance and, of course, you don’t get a lot in top games. But for efficiency, you need a bit of luck and composure."
We have seen Dembélé in many games staying cool, faking shots before making the final shooting decision, and that is enough to assure his presence in Stamford Bridge will bring the much-needed composure.
Pace and agility
The French man has a terrifying pace, body feints and agility which enables him to tear the opponents defenders to create goal scoring opportunity for others or himself.
Counter attacking catalyst
Dembélé has a spontaneous playing style, and he is good on 1-v-1 situation. His constant unexpected runs in between the lines and ability to use both feet to shot is of great significance to Thomas Tuchel.
