Former Liverpool striker Stan Collymore has revealed two things Thomas Tuchel changed at the club after replacing Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss in January.
According to Collymore, Tuchel made two changes in Chelsea which are:
1. He made the spine of his team as strong as he possibly could and
2. He set them up defensively to start keeping clean sheets.
Collymore told Daily Mirror: “When Thomas Tuchel arrived at Chelsea as Frank Lampard’s replacement in January, the lack of time he had to get to work looked like it could be an albatross around his neck.
