Niguez was part of Chelsea’s 5-1 victory in their FA Cup game against Chesterfield.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is happy with Saul Niguez and he admits his importance in the club. Chelsea recorded a 5-1 victory in their FA Cup game last night against Chesterfield and Niguez was star of this game.
It was an important victory for Blues ahead of a midweek trip to Spurs for the second leg of the EFL Cup semi-final. Tuchel’s side already had an advantage of two goals.
Tuchel spoke when he was asked of Saul Niguez’s importance to the team right now, “I think he will be an important player for us and I hope so as well.
“The game against Tottenham was a huge step forward for Saul and he showed what he can do with his abilities.
“Against Chesterfield he was part of a strong squad. Okay, it was against a fifth division side so there was no need for us to be overran in midfield but he still did well with his performance.
“I see more confidence in him with each game, he is in good shape and his adaptation to the way we play has gone further from before.
“You can see this in his game now. He is more open, he understands the language better now and these are all important things to consider when talking about Saul and how much he has improved recently.
“He is having much more impact on games than he was doing at the beginning of the season and this is very important because I’m convince we will need every player to compete in every competition from now until the end of the season, especially at the moment where we are playing every three days.”
