Paul Merson heaps praises on Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea are well in the hunt for a top-four finish claims Merson.

Since taking over Frank Lampard as the manager in January, Thomas Tuchel has transformed the Blues after an impressive series of results and has not lost a game yet.

Arsenal legend Paul Merson is impressed by Tuchel’s impact at Stamford Bridge so far this campaign and believes the club would thrive under the former PSG coach.

“Everything is going right for Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel, at the moment,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“They’ve had two big results against Liverpool and Everton to continue what has been an unbelievable run and full credit has to go to Tuchel.

“They were a real handful against Everton, and Kai Havertz epitomised that. We finally saw his best on Monday, he was simply outstanding. I didn’t realise how quick he was! He was a real handful and the decision to bring him in last night was rewarded.

“When you are winning every week that’s what happens.

“The problems he has now is Havertz just had his best game for Chelsea by a million miles, but I’d be surprised if he plays next week. Mason Mount was outstanding against Liverpool but then he didn’t play against Everton. They look really good.

“The one problem I still see is that they don’t score a lot of goals. For all the game they had against Everton, I thought it was a game where they probably could have blown the opposition away. Some of the passing and some of the movement was outstanding.

“I really like the manager. He looks really good and has made a really impressive start at Stamford Bridge.”
