Tuchel Era: Top 5 Chelsea Stars Who Must Find Another Club Next Season.

It has been a satisfactory period for most Chelsea fans in the last four months since the appointment of German tactician Thomas Tuchel as the head coach of the club. 

He has been able to get organize the Chelsea side within that short space and win important games, games that for most Chelsea fans, Lampard would have bottled, and despite losing the FA cup final to Leicester, there is still a champions league final to be played next week against Manchester City.

With all that Tuchel is doing with this Chelsea side, certain players have suffered in getting regular playing time mainly due to the way he sets up his team and the system.

From all indications, some of these players won't have life at the club next season under Thomas Tuchel and there will be that for them to look elsewhere.

We look at the top five players who could join other clubs next season due to limited playing time at Chelsea.

Tammy Abraham

Tammy Abraham is one of the key first players who have suffered so much under Thomas Tuchel despite being the club's top scorer this season before the arrival of Tuchel.

Abraham has not played more than six games under the new gaffer and has got subbed off at halftime in the two games he stated under Tuchel.

The managed had severally opted not to play a recognizable number 9 or play a force 9 in Kai, even when Abraham is available for selection. He is simply not part of his plans.

Billy Gilmore

Though very young and talented, there is a lot of competition in the Chelsea midfield which will force Billy Gilmore to look elsewhere even on loan. 

The young Scott has fallen the pecking order behind Ngolo Kante, Jorginho, and Mateo Kovacic in midfield.

Olivier Giroud 

Currently, Word Cup winner Giroud is the fourth choice striker and behind Timo Werner, Kai, and Tammy Abraham.

He has got the same situation as Tammy Abraham and worse, concerning his playing time under Thomas Tuchel. 

Michy Batshuayi

Michy is one of the players currently on at Crystal Palace and expected to be back after the loan deal.

But the big question is, will "Batman" be the sort of striker who will fit in Tuchel's system? That's a big NO if the likes of Tammy Abraham and Giroud are struggling.


French midfielder Bakayo has only had one full season with Chelsea in 2017 when he was signed by then manager Antonio Conte.

With his age and the quality at Chelsea at the moment, Bakayo will be surplus to the requirement if he is to return to the club.
