Chelsea has set new domestic records under their German manager Thomas Tuchel in less than four months at helm at the club.
The Blues have recorded England’s best defensive stats since January 27, when Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge.
It has been over 3 months since the German took charge of Chelsea. Within those periods, the Blues have gone from the 10th spot to the 4th with a real chance to reach the Champions League final too.
Moreover, results like the one against Fulham don’t occur without a strong defense. Thus, let’s take a look at Chelsea’s defensive success under Thomas Tuchel in the Premier League so far.
So far, Chelsea rank first in five important categories – overall, Tuchel has gained 32 points in his 15 Premier League games in charge.
Plus the Blues have opened up a 6-point lead over their rivals for the top 4 spots, though West Ham still has a game in hand.
However, it has been a brilliant turnaround for Chelsea, who conceded 54 goals last season and had one of the worst defenses in the league-long.
