Chelsea deployed a 3-4-3 formation when the Bournemouth game kicked off, but Thomas Tuchel changed the formation to a 3-5-2 shape in the second half, introducing Armando Broja and Ike Ugbo.
Speaking after the game about the change in the formation, the boss told the club’s official website; “It suits Armando and Ike better as double strikers.
“They had the two chances and they took them. This is what they do and now they have to continue.
“It was good, and necessary to turn the game around. It’s a much better feeling to win games and to continue from there than to lose and worry or be sad and angry.”
