Don't get me wrong, I like Tuchel's style much over Lampard's even now. It's just still not where we should be at with attacking, but I understand that Havertz, Pulisic, Ziyech aren't playing. If you look at the teams remaining in CL and how they attack as a team, we still have a long way to go. All we need until summer is top 4, and then give Tuchel a full pre season and maybe a couple of signings to get a team attack going. I think if FL were still managing we'd be battling for 8th

Come now mate, the games are coming thick and fast, the dude been here for 3weeks or so, new team and league etc, surely we are not pissing all over him already.

It isn’t lack of movement. It isn’t that we are static. Our decision making in the final third is simply championship level atm. 

People said we shouldn't judge Lampard after 18 months at the club but the same people now want to judge Tuchel after only 1 month into the job. 🤣

Man Utd have a tough run of matches coming. If we can hold the form Tuchel has us playing and the attack gets a little tighter, 2nd could happen. I think ManC is not going to drop too many points.

We need a top striker, 2 of the 3 we have are not up to the job, one is no better than an average Div2 player Abraham, the other is only good enough to come on as sub Giroud.

Werner I like but wether he's a striker or not remains to be seen.

Unless we get a decent number 9 then we're going to struggle.

Abraham back in training today. If all goes well, he'll be in the squad tomorrow.

Silva back in training but will still be out.

Pulisic has calf issues. Nothing major. Just tight. Out as a precaution. 

Havertz is back and will be in the squad tomorrow.

Tuchel once again reiterated that Mendy is the No.1 keeper and deserves to be the No.1. Said the position is not one to mess about and it's important to have a clarity over the main choice.

Olivier Giroud set to lead the Chelsea attack at Southampton.

Win = 1 point behind Leicester and Man.Utd

Owing to the AM game (followed by Utd) I am going to post three lines ups here to try and give my selection some reasoning: 

Soton 

Mendy

Zouma AC Rudi

CHO Kante Jorgi Chilwell

Ziyech Mount

Giroud 

AM

Mendy

Dave AC Rudi 

James Kova Jorgi Alonso

Mount Harvetz

Werner 

Utd 

Mendy

Dave AC Zouma 

James Kova Kante Alonso

CHO Werner/Mount

Giroud

*AC dropped if Silva is back for AM. Could possibly play as the LCB in the Utd game.

This is a sign of a top class coach. He knows that Jorginho is not press-resistant so he chose to go with Kante and Kovacic. I'm pleased with the line-up, the only thing I don't like is Tammy starting.

Ugh. I haven’t liked the look of a single XI that TT has put out so far. But we keep winning.

Man, I feel terrible for Ziyech and Chilwell. Ziyech has shown sign after sign that he is extremely dangerous and with a consistent run of games could be such a key danger man for us the rest of the season. But can’t get a sniff now. Can’t understand it.

And Chilly was one of our best players under Frank and now can’t get a game either.

I'm a Ziyech fan, but he had a stinker against Barnsley. I agree that he is a much better player than Mount, but look at it from the coach's point of view. If a player doesn't perform when given a chance, he doesn't warrant a start. I would've loved Ziyech to play today instead of Mount though, especially against Southampton.
