Chelsea shared points with the Red Devils on Sunday evening after a 0-0 draw

Man United legend, Rio Ferdinand has spoken of his excitement for a Chelsea side that has remained unbeaten under the new managed.

Despite seeing their most experienced Defender; Thiago Silva, Chelsea have only conceived 2 goals as they still maintained the strong defense line.

Speaking after the game yesterday, Ferdinand has disclosed the position he deems fit Tuchel starts Werner in.

The German has struggled to find form since his return from International duties when Spain trashed the Germans.

‘The defensive record since he’s come in has really shot up,’ legendary ex-United and England centre-half Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel.

‘He changed personnel and gone with experience and you’ve seen an uplift in some of the players there.

‘I still think there’s massive work to do.’

‘I think Mount under Frank was their best player and he’s still the best player under Tuchel,’ Ferdinand added.

‘What he’s got to do, the recruitment they had under Frank, he’s got to get a tune out of them. Werner is not playing to the standard that we have seen at Leipzig, Havertz is on the bench, Ziyech played yesterday [against Manchester United]… no real massive impact.

‘These are three players that were tearing up their leagues where they came from so he needs that to be transferred into the Premier League and I think that’s a massive, massive task for him.

‘If he gets that right he’s on the right road and for them, I think it’ll be the same: recruitment. If these guys like [Erling] Haaland and [Kylian] Mbappe come up, Chelsea will be in the mix for them to try and buy them, 100 per cent.

‘That will obviously have a big impact and bearing on how well he does but as a man, he’s one of the most impressive men I’ve met in terms of football and the way he talks about the game.

‘It’s early days but Chelsea fans feel very positive about his start.’

‘For Chelsea to be having Giroud leading the line says really where they’re at in terms of they need to make some more recruitment in that area.

‘Is Timo Werner a No.9? I would say he’s probably better off from a wider position where he was playing at Leipzig. But they’re fully stocked out there, they’ve got [Christian] Pulisic as well.

‘Where does Havertz fit into this team? I think there’s a lot of questions for Tuchel to be answering and that’ll come with games, more time on the training field.

‘He’s going to have to get into these players to really unlock them and give him the best chance of staying and actually producing something there.’
