2 tactical strategies Tuchel should deploy in the Chelsea midfield position to boost the squad.

Chelsea football club are really having a little trouble in the midfield position since the absence of Chelsea's midfield Maestro, N'golo Kante in the squad. Kante has been unable to feature for them in their past games because of injury.

It has been a burden on Chelsea's manager, Tuchel to curtail a good midfield pair-up, as the combo of Kovacic and Jorginho does not augur well for the Chelsea squad in all their matches. The pairing of Kovacic and Jorginho in the midfield position results to positive outcomes in some matches and also results in disappointment in some matches too.

However the Chelsea manager can utilize these 2 tactical strategies in order to improve the Chelsea's midfielders.

1. Rotation of midfielders: Chelsea is one of the premier league clubs that are blessed with good midfielders. Tuchel has got N'golo Kante (injured), Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley, Kai Havertz, Lewis Baker(unused), Saul Niguez and Ruben Loftus-Cheek at his disposal. Therefore rotating the midfielders in each game won't be a problem for him until he acquires his perfect combo of two or three midfielders that will be playing for him in every game. Because as it stands now, the only perfect trio midfield combo Chelsea has now are only Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic. And what do you think will become of the Chelsea's midfield position when the three midfielders are out of play because of Injuries?.

2. Resting key midfielders: Tuchel should try to ensure that the trio midfielder of Mateo Kovacic, N'golo Kante and Jorginho does not startup every premier league matches except tough games. The trio midfielders should only be starting up tough matches against tough clubs. As this will keep them fit at all times because they will be free from workloads, stresses and injuries.
