The Debrief: Kante adds the energy but Saints frustrate Tuchel’s Blues

Four Premier League victories, plus the FA Cup win at Barnsley, are sandwiched between a draw in Tuchel’s first game in charge against Wolves and yesterday’s stalemate.

After that Wolves goalless draw, Tuchel called on his players to be ‘more deadly’ and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Blues react positively on Tuesday, when we face Atletico Madrid in Bucharest in the Champions League. That, however, is a totally different ball game to domestic competitions.

Still, the German is really making his mark at Stamford Bridge and the basis comes from making us hard to break down, first and foremost, before allowing the attacking players to express themselves in the manner that they do.
