UEFA Champions League

The team that nobody wants to play against - My Takes on Chelsea 2021/22 official Squad Photo

Thomas Tuchel made an uneasy promise to Chelsea Management and Fans of the West London outfit back in January when the club had just appointed him to replace Frank Lampard.

Speaking at the end of Chelsea's Premier league encounter with Wolverhampton Wanderers which he had just 24 hours to prepared for, Thomas Tuchel praised the performance of his club against Wolves despite playing a goalless draw.

There and then, he promised to make Chelsea a name that sends a cold shiver down the spine of their opponents. "We'll build a team that nobody wants to play against," Thomas Tuchel declared to the media in front of the watchful eyes of the rest of the world.

Thomas Tuchel did fulfilled his promise. He played against some of the best Managers in Europe and remained undefeated. He beat Diego Simeone twice. Pep Guardiola was defeated by Thomas Tuchel thrice, Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp each suffered defeat in the hands of Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea. Not even the great Zinedine Zidane was spared.

It was a hard work but the results were worth it. Manchester United have gone 4 Seasons without winning any Trophy, then came Thomas Tuchel who handed Chelsea the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup within 8 Months.

The Blues have also continued to build on their strong with their results this season. They have played 7 Matches already and still remained undefeated.

Last Thursday was all about photo day at the West London club. Thomas Tuchel alongside his Coaching staff and 25 Chelsea Players gathered at the club's Cobham training ground for the capturing of the 2021/22 official Squad photo.

In their form of full glory, Chelsea put the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup silverware on full display. In some way, I think it's a show of force. Chelsea is the Champions of Europe, that fact has been established since they defeated Manchester City about 4 months ago in Portugal. Putting those two titles on display will put the fear of Chelsea team in the heart of some lesser clubs in the league.

Clubs fear Manchester City, they don't go out charging towards the Citizens during the encounters. That's part of what Pep Guardiola has successfully achieved with the club. Chelsea can now begin to enjoy that privilege too after their European success.

The appearance of Romelu Lukaku and Saul Niguez in the photo with the Champions League trophy will also boost the commitment of the two summer Signings to the club.
