UEFA Champions League

What Tuchel should note from the game against Malmo.

Chelsea football club were 4-0 winners over Malmo last night in their third round of the UEFA champions league game courtesy of goals from Andrea Christensen, Jorginho and Kai Havertz. However, Chelsea football club lost their two strikers, Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku to injuries and there's no doubt, that the duo strikers will be unavailable for Chelsea's premier league game this weekend.

Tuchel was forced to feature the trio attackers of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Kai Havertz and Mason Mount who were not as active and threatening as the trio combo of Werner, Lukaku and Mount in the front-line position. And this calls for more improvement from Tuchel and his men.

There are two lessons Tuchel should learn from the game against Malmo:

1. Tuchel should know that his squad needs another striker: The vulnerability that Chelsea's front-line position encountered last night against Malmo, after both Lukaku and Werner sustained injuries, should be a warning to Tuchel that Chelsea needs another striker. The striker should be a backup for both Lukaku and Werner. Tuchel should deploy Wernerto the left wing-forward because of his misfiring and lack of positioning as a striker.

2. Tuchel should also convert Havertz into a striker: Kai Havertz showed more strength, stamina and decisive performance as a striker in last night game against Malmo. If Tuchel cannot be able to purchase another striker, then he (Tuchel) should consider converting Havertz into a striker. Mourinho did that with Drogba years back during his (Mourinho's) tenure at Chelsea and it worked perfectly well for him (Mourinho), for Chelsea football club and Drogba.
