Thomas Tuchel has created a selection headache with his latest gamble at Chelsea


Chelsea fans came into this season with somewhat dampened but reasonable expectations. While there was much excitement over the new signings, there was a common understanding players take time to gel and nothing is achieved over night. However, it seemed like most of the new boys had hit the ground running and defensive problems became a thing of the past. 

Since replacing Frank Lampard as Chelsea head coach last month, the German, who could see his side climb into the top four if they beat Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge this evening, has taken charge of five games in all competitions, winning four and drawing one.

While Newcastle offered little in attack, this was a near-perfect night for Chelsea. The only blot on the copybook was the first-half injury to Tammy Abraham, but it was his replacement Olivier Giroud who scored their opener, with Werner grabbing their second. It's now six games unbeaten for Tuchel, and, crucially, the strikers have started scoring -- their first in the league under the new boss.

For the 15 Premier League matches prior to Newcastle United’s visit to Stamford Bridge, Kepa Arrizabalga had undertaken a rigorous warm-up only to then spend 90 minutes sitting on the substitutes’ bench.
