Thank goodness the Premier League will start up again on Friday. Regardless of which side you happen to support, we have all missed it so much. There has been a lot of Blues-related activity this week while Chelsea supporters wait for the Saturday opener. Along with chairman Todd Boehly, head coach Thomas Tuchel will be among the busiest people in London at the moment. According to reports, the American is currently serving as the temporary recruitment director. Despite what you may hear, all departments are managing business effectively. It’s true that some targets chose Barcelona, etc., but anything may happen to any team at any time.
In the meantime, CFC have improved in every area they set out to, though it’s not apparent if the manager wants a traditional No. 9 in his starting lineup—one might still show up. Although I believe the German is aware that he needs natural goal scorers. It’s good news for those of us who want to see Armando Broja get a fair shot that it seems the Albanian striker may be the only senior striker at Stamford Bridge who is known by that name. However, as I previously stated, a brand-new star center-forward acquisition is still a possibility, particularly given Boehly’s efforts to cover all possible bases.
Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Chelsea, inquired about the health of Ben Chilwell, Marc Cucurella, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The pre-Everton press conference is already complete, although it was somewhat overshadowed by a big announcement that came right after, which we will cover in more detail right now. Tuchel covered a wide range of subjects, as might be expected. The fact that left-sided defender Ben Chilwell is probably not going to start against the Toffees was the main revelation in this.
Of course, the former Leicester City player has only recently made a comeback after suffering a serious injury and spending a lot of time on the sidelines. The German noted that although Chilwell’s conditioning had improved, the athlete still required time to adjust in terms of “rhythm and physicality.” It would be risky to bring the 25-year-old back to work full time, but it seems that Chels is not content to take that risk.
The fact that Marc Cucurella has now formally signed for the Blues adds to CFC’s caution. No part of the team is poor, and the starters are supported by excellent members of the national team. This story claims that “TT” told Chilwell that he would continue to be the “starting wingback.”
However, Chilwell must remain as concentrated as possible since the former Brighton player won’t be content with a spot on the bench; instead, he’ll be competing for a spot in the starting lineup. The Spaniard would be my choice out of the pair if I had to pick the guy who might become undroppable.
