OPINION: 2 Mistakes Thomas Tuchel Avoided As Chelsea Won Yesterday's UCL Match


Chelsea defeated Juventus 4-0 to advance to the Champions League round of 16 with one game remaining. Thomas Tuchel's team put together an outstanding performance, outclassing Juventus in every way. Chelsea hasn't lost in all competitions since falling to Juventus, and they'll be hoping to keep that streak continuing.

Despite returning to the squad, Thomas Tuchel made only a few alterations to the lineup from yesterday. Romelu Lukaku was absent from the action. Timo Werner came on as a substitute in the last minutes of the game and scored Chelsea's fourth goal. Here are the two errors Thomas Tuchel averted in Chelsea's UCL victory yesterday.

N'golo Kante didn't have a fantastic start to yesterday's encounter, as he was dispossessed several times and lost possession of the ball in vital places. In the final minutes of the first half, Thomas Tuchel substituted Ruben Loftus for him. In the second half, Ruben Loftus-Cheek came in and assisted Callum Hudson-odoi. It was the perfect call to keep N'golo Kante out until the second half. The Frenchman was having a poor performance and needed to be removed from the game.

In yesterday's encounter, Thomas Tuchel started Hakim Ziyech. Thomas Tuchel decided to start the Moroccan today after the performance he put in against Leicester City in the last minutes, and he did brilliantly. In the final minutes of the game, he assisted Timo Werner on a goal. Hakim Ziyech had two assists in two games. Mason Mount could have started ahead of Hakim Ziyech, but Thomas Tuchel's decision to start the Moroccan was brilliant. From the right wing, Hakim Ziyech had a bigger impact than Mason Mount, so maybe he can keep it up.
