Chelsea still need to improve when it comes to set pieces (opinion)

Chelsea football club have been so impressive this season in all competitions and the blues are currently one of the most strongest teams in the world. The North London club are the current European Champions following their UEFA Champions League triumph over Epl rivals, Manchester City.

Though Thomas Tuchel side is lagging behind when it comes to set-pieces. According to statistic, Chelsea have scored just a single goal from set-piece this season and only managed to score a few last season.

Thomas Tuchel still has a lot of work to do in this area of his game and I think the right time is now before it becomes too late. Lukaku might become frustrated if the current pattern doesn't work and at that point the team will need set-pieces to break through.

Playing against a team like Manchester City you may not hold onto the ball for a longer period so all you need is a set-piece where a lucky goal can come from.

If Tuchel doesn't work on these, then Chelsea area a team to beat this season irrespective of their current form.
