THOMAS TUCHEL is wasting no time in proving his credentials as he closes in on a Premier League record.
The German gaffer has inspired his side to six wins and three draws including victories away at Liverpool and Tottenham.
Since his arrival, Chelsea have only conceded two league goals that came in a 1-1 draw with Southampton and a 2-1 win away at Sheffield United.
Tuchel’s unbeaten run stretches to 11 games in all competitions that also includes an impressive 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
But his league run could be unrivalled should his side avoid defeat in their next four matches.
Only ex-Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri and former Nottingham Forest gaffer Frank Clark began their Prem managerial careers with longer unbeaten runs.
Sarri, who was appointed at Stamford Bridge in 2018, went 12 matches undefeated – one more than Clark in the 1994-95 season.
Another ex-Chelsea boss Felipe Scolari went eight games unbeaten in 2009 as he won six and drew two.
Tuchel will certainly fancy his chances of extending his league record judging by Chelsea’s upcoming fixtures.
