The German Chelsea head coach ‘Thomas Tuchel’ has engineered two wins over Manchester City since his arrival in late January.
Thomas Tuchel is a German former professional football player and current head coach of Premier League club Chelsea. Revered for his tactical knowledge and style of play, his coaching career has also been marked by fractious relationships with his employers.
Thomas Tuchel proving his tactical acumen feels like he has a psychological edge over Manchester City ahead of the Champions League final later this month.

The late victory for the Blues against Manchester City during the weekend match has proven more than a match for the Catalan rival ‘Pep Guardiola’ . However, It is not just the two wins over Man. City this season that has illustrated Tuchel’s managerial skills.
Josep “Pep” Guardiola Sala is a Spanish professional football manager and former player, who is the current manager of Premier League club Manchester City.
The former PSG head coach “Tuchel” developed a real reputation for his tactical acumen throughout his coaching career. Those skills have been on full display at Mainz, Dortmund and PSG before his switch to Chelsea.
In some ways, Tuchel’s tactical ability, innovative training sessions and flexibility could be compared to Guardiola’s. That is bad news for Guardiola and all the other head coaches in the English top-flight for next season.
The fact that Tuchel has already dragged Chelsea from midtable to third-place in the Premier League table and a Champions League shows just how good a head coach he is.
The effect that Tuchel has had on the current Chelsea squad in such a short time with the club is incredible. Some clubs have new manager bounce, but the Blues improvement is far more than just that. It is players buying into the ideas of a highly intelligent head coach. Chelsea might get even better with Tuchel’s tactics.

It is scary to think how good Chelsea will be once the German has been allowed to bring in some of his own players. The club’s hierarchy may be responsible for recruitment, but considering the impact he has had in his short time at the club, Tuchel will certainly have a big hand in the next season. With the backing of moneybag’s club owner Roman Abramovich, the Tuchel could add to his already highly talented and squad.
When Chelsea spent big on some big-name players in the summer, some expected the Blues to mount a realistic challenge for the Premier League title. However, things didn’t quite work out under club legend Frank Lampard before Tuchel came in to replace the former England midfielder as head coach.

Next season is likely to be a different story for the team from south west London. Tuchel has had time to get across ideas, the Blues have built up good end of season momentum and they may yet finish the season as European champions.
The mix of the ingredients feels just right for the Blues to mount a realistic charge for the Premier League title next season. They certainly looked the best-placed team to mount any sort of challenge for the English top-flight crown. Let’s see what happens!! Will Thomas Tuchel help Chelsea to challenge Manchester City for the title next season? or Will Pep Gaurdiola retain the title next season?
