Thomas Tuchel’s concern following the transfer window has been identified by Gary Neville.
This season, Chelsea appears to be a serious contender for the Premier League title.
With an overall positive assessment on Chelsea’s Premier League title chances this season, Gary Neville has indicated where he believes a problem area may exist. After bringing in Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez during the transfer window, the Blues appear to be a serious force this season.
Neville, a Manchester United veteran, has shared his thoughts on Chelsea’s season so far.
The former right-back believes their recruitment has prepared them well for a title push.
“Saul is again another outstanding player. He’s had a lot of experience at the very top of La
He has a lot of Champions League and international experience,” he stated on Sky Sports. “He matches the Chelsea profile of ready-to-play guys.
“That is Chelsea’s model, and if you look at what they’ve done in terms of ins and outs in this transfer window, it’s been yet another exceptional performance from them.
“They’re a formidable unit. I’ve already seen them play twice this season, once at Arsenal and once at Anfield.
“That is a fantastic team, one that consistently wins and is hungry for more. When Liverpool was reduced to ten men at Anfield, I didn’t think it would be simple for them to break Chelsea down in the second half.
“That’s when you know you’re up against a talented squad because it’s the most difficult area to play.
“And the signing of Saul, as well as Romelu Lukaku, strengthens them even further. They already have a formidable midfield in Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, and Mateo Kovacic.
“With the way they play, you only need two in there, but Saul’s inclusion means they can challenge on all fronts. It gives them a huge boost and makes them far more dangerous than they were last Saturday at Anfield.”
Tuchel chose not to bring in any defenders over the summer, therefore Neville has some reservations about the defense.
“You could argue that Chelsea is a little light at the back, but they do have a style of play with those two players sat in front of that back three that makes them solid,” he continued.
“So what Thomas Tuchel has done since he’s come in is maybe recognize that they.”
