Thomas Tuchel marked his fine win as Chelsea manager as his two picks continue paying off greatly
The former PSG manager already Chelsea going with 4 points from his first two games, becoming the first manager to keep two clean sheets since Rafael Benitez.
But with the finishing not being as deadly as he desires yet, Chelsea still go through process of finding the best way to fix things in after realizing only two goals from their minimum of 70% ball possession in the last two games.
Clearly the work and mentality has changed all over the squad and that can’t be hidden but a great finishing would help fire up the process.
The striking worry is less focused on when one remembers the awesome work done at the back by Thomas Tuchel‘s pick for defensive link up.
Having Anthonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva linking up at the back is really one of the major reasons for Chelsea clean sheet run in Thomas Tuchel’s first two games.
The composure and communication between the duo is top notch as they haven’t been caught fixating over opponent attacks.
Although Hudson-Odoi is really another star whose development has been mind blowing with many also speculating it’s his best run in the club so far.
But with Tony and Silva at the backline, the midfielder are more relaxed doing their work in the center knowing the guys at the back know what to do and when to.
Over and over have the guys been seen picking up running attackers with a long pass just as instructed by Thomas Tuchel.
It’s appears both men could have started gelling earlier on if Lampard had opted for them other than wiping Rudiger from the front page.
Which one Chelsea Player would all eyes likely be on during Tottenham Thursday clash?
Marcos Alonso netting that goal against Burnley marked a better way to return to the squad under a new administration.

Frank Lampard opted for Ben Chilwell to be brought in due to the fact that he never wanted to field Marcos Alonso for certain reasons.
But with the most understandable reason being Chilwell is more defensive conscious than Alonso, his pick was in someway justified by Chilwell’s performance on the role he was handed by the former manager.
Chilwell got chance ahead of Alonso during Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge but one could easily tell his pattern doesn’t suit the role he gets to fill under the new manager.
Thomas Tuchel’s role for him requires a better finisher and more attacking minded person which Alonso perfectly falls into this category.
Alonso loves pushing the ball forward even when there are slim chances for a push, he even at some times make runs between the defenders and that played a great role in his goal against Burnley.
He is clearly making the starting line up against Tottenham on Thursday and would be the one to watch considering his scoring stats against Spurs.
Alonso is in love with finding back of Spurs goal post and there are higher chances he will net a goal or cause problems for the opponent during the game.
A win over Spurs will server a major boost for Blues who are already on their path to a top 4 finish following loses from West Ham United, Leicester City and Tottenham during the last fixtures.
