Following Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat against David Moyes’ West Ham United in the English Premier League last weekend, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea dropped to the third position on the EPL table as Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Liverpool moved to the 1st and 2nd position respectively.

Chelsea has been involved in three games so far in their December games, winning only one game in those fixtures. Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea has been struggling to win matches since failing to beat Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge Stadium last month.

The blues still have six tough games (against Leeds United, Everton, Wolverhampton, Brentford United, Aston Villa, and Brighton) left to play this December, and the article states reasons why they might drop more points in the English Premier League table this month.

INJURY PROBLEMS

Recently, Chelsea has been without some of their key players in previous games so far. France international N’golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, and Ben Chilwell have been sidelined with injuries and this has affected Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea performance in previous games.

Thomas Tuchel has not been able to perfectly replace these players that were sidelined by injuries, and it has affected his game plan massively. In the game against West Ham United and Zenit Saint Petersburg in the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League respectively, Chelsea was unable to dominate the game like they use to do in other games.

Change Of Formation

Thomas Tuchel recently changed his attacking trio after Belgian international Romelu Lukaku returned from injury. Chelsea’s attacking line was intact not until the former Inter Milan striker returned. Lukaku has shown he is not the type of player who could easily adapt to Thomas Tuchel’s game plan since his arrival at Stamford Bridge this season.

Reece James played as a midfielder in the game against Zenit Saint Petersburg on Wednesday due to lack of options, and if Thomas Tuchel doesn’t adjust his game plan in Chelsea’s upcoming games, the blues could see themselves drop more points on the EPL table.
