"We will build a team nobody wants to play against" - Has Tuchel fulfilled his 8 Months old Promise?

Thomas Tuchel was appointed as Chelsea Manager in January 2021. The German Gaffer took over from Frank Lampard whom was fired following a run of unimpressive results. Prior to the appointment of the Germany International as the Blues' Boss, he had previously spent two and a half year managing PSG. His impressive record at the French Capital made many Chelsea Fans showed enthusiasm to his appointment.

He won two Ligue 1 titles with the French club alongside 4 other domestic titles. Thomas Tuchel was also the Manager that led the Parisians to the brink of the UEFA Champions League triumph in 2020 before they eventually lost to Bayern Munich in the Final. There was no gainsaying that Chelsea got the right Man for the job but what no one could predict accurately at the time of his appointment was how long it was going to take before he gets the club back on track.

Of course, the 48-year-old announced brazenly that he was going to make Chelsea one of strongest Clubs in Europe by building a Squad that nobody wants to play against.

While Speaking at the end of Chelsea's league clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers back in 2021 which was also his first Match as Chelsea Manager, Thomas Tuchel said: "We have the capacity with this squad to hurt everybody in the league, in every competition, and it's my job to bring the team to that level as fast as possible."

"I'm used to creating the special energy and atmosphere you need to create for the possibility to win every three days in a league like this. I believe we can do this on a daily basis. We will build a team nobody wants to play against."

At the moment that Thomas Tuchel made the promise, not many Fans of the club believed him. I mean the team were in the 8th position on the league table at that time and they had a date with Atletico Madrid in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. So, what magical transformation does Thomas Tuchel intends to do?

One Match at a time, Thomas Tuchel started building his Chelsea Squad piece by piece. The Blues defeated Atletico Madrid in the first and second of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

Chelsea did become a terrific team that no team wants to play against. Thomas Tuchel defeated Pep Guardiola thrice last season including at the Final of the UEFA Champions League. The Blues also eliminated Real Madrid before reaching the finals.

Thomas Tuchel is into his second season as the Manager of the West London club. Chelsea have carried their fine form from last Season into the new Campaign. They have played against Crystal Palace, Arsenal, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspurs without recording any loss. What's even more impressive is that they have conceded just one goal in this term.

So if you ask me, I think Thomas Tuchel has done enough to make Chelsea a team that nobody wants to play against.
