Chelsea became an extraordinary team after the presence of Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge. Even the German manager managed to turn his team into a very sharp team and won the 2020/2021 Champions League.
The appointment of Thomas Tuchel as manager at Chelsea is like bringing fresh air at Stamford Bridge. Understandably, before Tuchel arrived, Chelsea was in an unpleasant situation under the care of club legend, Frank Lampard.
With Thomas Tuchel, every Chelsea player wants to give an impressive performance. Even when the architects of this team changed the composition of Chelsea by playing three defenders, the appearance of the west London club was increasingly promising.
Chelsea not only secured a top four position in the Premier League last season, but also won the Champions League. Although the Blues are quite far behind in the competition for the Premier League title this season, they still have a chance.
Chelsea ‘s impressive appearance certainly cannot be separated from the players who gave victory after victory for the Blues. Here are the five Chelsea players who have scored the most goals under Thomas Tuchel.
Timo Werner – 9 Goal
Chelsea signed Timo Werner from RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020 for 53 million euros. The German player came to overcome the anxiety of the Blues when he was in front of the opponent’s goal.
Unfortunately, Werner has not found the right side and has often been a frustrating figure in the Blues attack.
Since Tuchel’s appointment in January 2021, Werner has played in 43 games under Thomas Tuchel. So far he has scored 9 goals and 11 assists .
It is evident that his overall goal contribution is far from bad. However, only scoring 9 goals over 12 months is hardly good enough for a striker of his caliber.
Kai Havertz – 9 Gol
Attacking midfielder Kai Havertz came to the west London club during the same period as Timor Werner. He is also an established Bundesliga star, ready to make the English club shine with his goals and assists .
Chelsea brought Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen for 80 million euros when Frank Lampard was still in charge. He also contributed through 11 goals in 24 matches in all competitions.
Tuchel’s strict system has not always been good for the 22-year-old. However, Kai Havertz has often emerged with valuable goals under his compatriots. His tally of 9 goals is not extraordinary, but Tuchel will be grateful for the goals he scored in last season’s Champions League final.
The former Bayer Leverkusen star tapped Mason Mount’s pass to unleash a lethal left-footed strike. His shot penetrated the Manchester City defense to give Chelsea a 1-0 win in the most important game of their season.
Hakim Ziyech – 10 Gol
Hakim Ziyech’s relationship with Chelsea did not run smoothly. He was recruited from Ajax in the same transfer period as Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. The Moroccan player is also expected to provide something extraordinary in the final third of the field for the Blues.
Unfortunately, injury prevented him from getting a place under Frank Lampard and began to show a decline at Stamford Bridge. At least that happened until Thomas Tuchel finally came.
Tuchel gave him the opportunity to impress in his first game as coach. Unfortunately, his mind was not on that game and Ziyech failed to save his side from a disappointing goalless draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
As a result, the German coach removed Ziyech from the starting position in the next five matches. Ziyech ended the 2020/2021 season with six goals, four of which could have come under the former PSG coach.
Ziyech has bagged six goals and four assists in 24 games in all competitions this season, forcing Tuchel to give him more chances to play for Chelsea.
Jorginho – 13 Goal
The Italian defensive midfielder is arguably one of the best in the football business. Last year he helped the Italian national team win Euro 2020 and win the Champions League with Chelsea .
Winning two unique titles made him the number 10 player in history who won both the Euros and the Champions League in the same year.
Thanks to his conservative position, Jorginho rarely looks at the goal. The 13 goals he has scored so far have come from the penalty spot.
He scored four penalties in 25 games in all competitions last season. This season, he has improved his record, converting nine goals from the spot in just 29 appearances.
Mason Mount – 13 Gol
Mason Mount has been Chelsea ‘s top goalscorer since Thomas Tuchel took over as coach in January 2021. Over the past 12 months, the 23-year-old has played 58 games under the German, scoring 13 goals and providing 11 assists . .
Usually used as an attacking midfielder, Mount can move up into the attack area or drop into midfield during transitions. The Englishman never runs out of steam and can press with the same intensity for the full 90 minutes.
Mason Mount has an insatiable appetite for helping his team and is always ready to do what the coach asks.
The Chelsea academy dropout has scored seven goals and provided six assists in the Premier League this season. He is currently joint third in English football’s top flight.
