The Germany tactician had won the same competition last season. When all the odds were against him at the finals against Manchester City.
No one would have ruled him out of Juventus clash despite the injuries. Especially with the home side losing both Dybala and Alvaro Morata. Through injuries against Sampdoria just four days before kickoff.
But now the Russian, Chelsea owner has a reputation of lack of patience with his club manager's. Over the years we have seen Di Matteo winning Champions league. And the following season he was not at the Chelsea dugout.
After two successful defeats to both Manchester City and Juventus. The Chelsea owner is unpredictable as he can strike an axe to former PSG boss at his will. But with the blues currently in top four.
Joint in the second position with last week oppressors Manchester City with 13 points. He's more likely to be patient with the club manager at least at the moment. Despite losing on Juventus the blues are expecting.
To get maximum points against Malmo as well as on return leg with Zenit. Which will surely put them in the mix of next Champions league knockout face. Chelsea's next fixtures are Southampton and Brentford.
Then face Champions league fixture against Malmo and later Norwich. Both of the fixtures are supposed to be giving the blues maximum points. And these should cool down the Russians sack wrath if there is any.
But Tuchel cannot be sure of picking up a winning run if he can't keep his players fit. And bring back his injured best players. With Kante and Recce James the most used of the injured players. Both should be available after October international break.
