1 Chelsea Are Very Good When They Defend.

Note that many teams find it difficult to play against Chelsea because of their defensive setup. Thomas Tuchel prefers to make use of 5 defenders. Note that using 5 defenders makes it difficult for even the best teams to play against Chelsea. Recall that against Liverpool, Chelsea played with 10 men for 45 minutes, yet the team was impeccable.
