Since the 2-2 draws played with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, Thomas Tuchel has adopts a new form that none of colleagues in the coaching world no about
The German trainer and his Chelsea team were in action against Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of the semi-final of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. Chelsea raced to a two goals lead within 34 minutes of the encounter courtesy of a strike from Kai Havertz and a Ben Davies own goal.
The Blues dominated the first period that Antonio Conte’s couldn’t register a single shot at goal in the opening 45 minutes. Games against quality teams like Tottenham Hotspur will always be a difficult one, but the fact that Chelsea dominated easily is not just based on the player’s hard work alone but the brilliance of the manager. In this article, we will look at one thing Tuchel did against Spurs that shows how good he is as a tactician.
Since joining Chelsea after leaving PSG about a year ago, Tuchel has proved himself to be a good Manager, transforming an average Chelsea team to European champions and title contenders. He has won two trophies with the club since he joined and has led the team to another final. Without doubt, he has been one of the best in the Premier League since he joined.
Recently, his side suffered a dip in form, something that makes people to suggest that the German coach his running out of idea. It was proposed by some people that Tuchel didn’t understand the kind of formation to be using again. However, his side has picked up again and against Tottenham on Wednesday, Tuchel’s brilliance was clearly seen again as he set up his side in a way that many couldn’t predict.
Chelsea are known to for their 3-4-3 formation for the past 12 months or so, but Tuchel revert to a back four against Tottenham and this helped his side dominate the flank, something that help keep Spurs at bay throughout the first period.
However, Not many coaches can try against a top side like Tottenham, and I believe such move by Tuchel shows how knowledgeable he is about the game.
