OPINION: Chelsea's Poor Finishing Should Be Tuchel's Next Focus For Improvement


Chelsea has made significant progress in several areas and is now one of the finest teams in the world. After winning the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup, the arrival of German manager Thomas Tuchel has been a major revelation for the Blues.

Chelsea is also top of the Premier League table and has advanced to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League. The blues have been converted by Thomas Tuchel into a superb squad, but there is still one issue.

Chelsea took against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge Stadium last weekend, with the blues favored to win all three points. Despite dominating the first half, the Chelsea players appeared to be at a loss, having accomplished almost everything but scoring goals.

The Blues had dominated possession and forced Manchester United into a deep block, but they had also made numerous blunders. The paucity of goals was not due to a lack of opportunities; rather, the finishing was below par.

Callum Hudson-Odoi had a fantastic one-on-one opportunity to score, but De Gea saved his weak attempt. Antonio Rudiger, Timo Werner, Thiago Silva, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek all had chances to score but failed to do so. In the second half, the same pattern repeated, and the game concluded in a 1-1 draw.

Manchester United's deep block defending isn't the only reason for their goal-scoring woes. Chelsea FC was also guilty of squandering golden chances against Burnley FC, finally conceding a goal to escape with a point.

The blues had many chances to score against Malmö FF in the Champions League, but came away with only a 1-0 victory. Chelsea missed numerous chances to score goals in other matches against clubs like as Brentford, Aston Villa, and Southampton.

Although the blues' wastefulness in front of goal hasn't yet completely backfired, there's a decent chance it will as the season progresses. Thomas Tuchel's next area of concentration for development should be poor finishing before it affects the Blues' ability to compete for championships this season.
