GOOD MORNING CHELSEA FANS
Matteo Kovacic has discussed the differences between Thomas Tuchel and previous boss Frank Lampard.
He told the club’s website: “I think we’ve improved a lot in the last three games, we’ve got seven points. But we need to go game by game and try to be as up as possible and I think we can do it.
“I think we have little problems – we didn’t score against Burnley as well. In the last 15 minutes we were 1-0 up and it could be even more.
“This is a thing we need to improve, to finish games. I think this is one thing we will work a lot on.
“He [Tuchel] explained to us what he wants. It’s exactly that – to play fast forward, to create chances, to be in the opposition’s half.
“I think we’ve improved a lot in the last three games but I think we can be even better & be even more confident.
“In the games coming, we will be even better and we need to even better because we can do it.”
Meanwhile, on the transfer front, Chelsea manager Tuchel has reportedly rewritten the club’s plans for the summer transfer window.
The Blues had been linked with West Ham’s Declan Rice and Brighton’s Ben White under Frank Lampard, but now they have been disregarded as Tuchel focuses instead on the two central defenders.
According to Goal, they are RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano and Bayern Munich’s Niklas Sule.
Upamecano, 22, has made a name for himself as one of the hottest prospects in Europe with his performances in the Bundesliga and Champions League.
And finally, Tuchel is reportedly ready to make a counter-offer to hijack Real Madrid’s bid for David Alaba.
Bayern Munich are set to wave goodbye to the long-serving Austrian defender when his contract expires in the summer.
Chelsea are one of several teams said to be interested in the 28-year-old, along with Madrid, Liverpool, and Manchester United.
According to The Guardian, the Blues want to make a last-ditch attempt to gazump the LaLiga giants.
