Chelsea have transformed under Thomas Tuchel after it struggled for results under their former manager and club legend Frank Lampard.
The Blues have turned their fortune around, with solid defensive displays that have seen them reach the final four of the Champions League competition.
Tuchel’s transformation is clear. His win against Manchester City coupled with his long unbeaten streak , spare West Brom surprise win at Stamford Bridge, is a clear indication that they can pull a surprise result and go all the way to the final of the Uefa Champions League and bring the title home.
It is now clear that the former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard’s underperformance was not a result of lack of squad depth. The former PSG coach is using the same squad to get results that his predecessor struggled to take advantage of despite huge spending by the team witnessed in the recent past.

Jorginho has now taken a dig at his former coach claiming that Lampard skipped some steps to become Chelsea coach.
In an honest discussion on ESPN, the Chelsea star said:
“Look, I’ll be really sincere here on Lampard.
“I believe, given he was a legend at the club, he skipped some steps necessary for learning before moving to a big club.
“He came to a club where he is a legend, without having experience at other clubs.
“I think he came too soon, skipped a few steps ahead and wasn’t ready for a job at this level, to be honest.”
Lampard was sacked in January and the club settled on Thomas Tuchel as his replacement.
Lampard’s record of 1.67 points per game was the worst return of any Chelsea coach in the Roman Abramovich era.
