“I admire what Mikel Arteta has done with Aubameyang and in some ways, I admire Tuchel here,” ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports.
“Let’s not forget this club [Chelsea]. This is a different club, the players have always won against the manager.
“Right now, I think in terms of top managers around in world football, I would say we have three in the Premier League in Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, and Thomas Tuchel.
“Look at the problems, Manchester United have right now – they still don’t know who they’re going to get at the end of the season.”
“I actually think right now – even though they’ve had great success changing managers over the last ten years – I think it would be easier for them to replace Lukaku than the manager they’ve got.
“Because they’ve got a proper top-class manager right now.”
Romelu Lukaku was excluded from the matchday squad ahead of the Liverpool game after his controversial interview.
The forward will meet the manager on Monday to clear the air. Previously, it was reported that Chelsea had no intention to offload Lukaku in January – so far, nothing suggests that their stance has changed.
