Tuchel Starts His Chelsea Reign With Goalless Draw

Tuchel start Chelsea Reign

Chelsea‘s new manager Thomas Tuchel saw his first match end in a frustrating 0-0 draw against Wolves on Wednesday.

Tuchel’s side controlled possession but could not find enough rhythm to break down stubborn Wolves at a rain-lashed Stamford Bridge.

“I enjoyed it a lot because I was very happy with the intensity, the attitude, energy and quality of my team,” the 47-year-old said.

“We were well organised, had a lot of ball recoveries in the last third and never lacked intensity.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t score, but if we take care of our performances like this the results will come.”

Chelsea have won just two of their last nine league matches and sit in eighth place, five points adrift of the top four.

Tuchel only took training with Chelsea’s players for the first time on Tuesday evening after being appointed earlier in the day.
