Chelsea are presently in 5th position on the Premier League table with only two points behind 4th placed West Ham Utd and three points ahead of defending champions Liverpool who languish in 6th place after 25 matches.
But the ex Arsenal star(Merson) feels Chelsea will miss out from the top four this campaign because of the club's attacking limitations under Tuchel.
“Thomas Tuchel needs to get Mason Mount and Timo Werner playing closer together for Chelsea,” Merson wrote in his Daily Star column.
According to him(Paul), Chelsea lacks the ability to blow teams away, adding that it will eventually prove to be the Blues downfall in their quest for a top four finish.
“There is too much going on out wide with overlaps and crosses to no one in the box at the moment, and nothing is coming through the middle. “It looks nice, but it’s a bit negative."
Although Chelsea have been unbeaten under the German Gaffer, but the club's inability to kill off games or cause more havoc to the opposition team's despite having loads of the ball for majority of their games, might deny Chelsea a place in the last 4 after Matchday 38.
