Thomas Tuchel is a football coach that is good with tactics. Chelsea has become a well-drilled side that is difficult to break down under his tutelage.
The German tactician has brought out the best in different players and also build a solid system for players to express themselves on the field.
Tuchel has stuck with the 3-4-2-1 formation. He often deploys three defenders at the back, the fullbacks occupy the midfield with two central midfielders. The striker is then supported by two creative midfielders to make attacking frontline for the team.
Thomas Tuchel may need to try out a different formation with the team due to the following reasons.
1. Mason Mount and Kai Havertz have important roles to play in the 3-4-2-1 formation, the two creative midfielders have to open up the backline of the opponent and also score goals for the team.
The two players have struggled in this role, they have been less decisive on the field. This has made the attacking line of Chelsea to be less effective against teams that preferred to defend before launching a counterattack against the Blues.
While Kai Havertz and Mason Mount Are decent players, they need to regain their form for the 3-4-2-1 formation to become effective.
With the number of quality players available at Stamford Bridge, Thomas Tuchel can choose to alter the formation of the team.
The 3-5-2 formation could turn out to be more suitable for the team, the game against Tottenham Hotspur shows how good Chelsea can be with this formation.
2. If Thomas Tuchel should settle for the 3-5-2 formation, it will allow Chelsea to have two attackers leading the frontline of the team.
Playing Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner as the frontline of the team will help the attacking line of Chelsea to be more dynamic and unpredictable for the opponent.
The 3-5-2 formation could help Chelsea compete for the English Premier League title in the ongoing season.
