With all the uncertainties surrounding Chelsea and their ownership following the sanctions on Roman Abramovich by the UK Government, Thomas Tuchel will be in for a tough few months after this international break. The Blues are facing off against Brentford at home before going on to lock horns with Real Madrid at the start of next month.
Chelsea’s Season At A Glance So Far
The West London club made a strong start to this campaign as they mounted an early push for the Premier League title. Tuchel even managed to lead his men to the final of the Carabao Cup where they were narrowly beaten by Liverpool on penalties (10-11).
However, Chelsea deserve a lot of credit for winning the FIFA Club World Cup earlier this year. Plus, the reigning European champions are still well on course towards defending their UEFA Champions League crown as they have now made it to the quarterfinals where they will now clash heads with Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid on April 7.
What Should Chelsea Boss Thomas Tuchel Prioritise On In The Remainder Of This Campaign?
Tuchel’s main aim this season should be to ensure a top-four finish in the Premier League, considering their off-the-pitch problems surrounding their ownership right now.
The Blues should still be confident about their chances of getting the better of Los Blancos over a two-legged time in the Champions League quarterfinals next month as Tuchel seems to be making the most out of his players at the moment.
If the Chelsea head coach can somehow manage to get Mason Mount and Romelu Lukaku back to firing on all cylinders, the West London club’s fans have every reason to be excited about their club’s chances of European success this season.
Lastly, the Blues can look forward to an exciting derby showdown against Crystal Palace over two legs in the FA Cup semifinals. Hence, Tuchel might be quietly optimistic about securing a trophy or two as long his players keep performing the way they have been over the past 12 months. However, injuries could play a part in determining how Chelsea finish this campaign as the fixtures will come thick and fast after the international break.
