The new ploy is said to be used to guise the club’s attacks
Ever since he’s taken on the coaching role, Thomas Tuchel has impressed with his new and innovative methods on the pitch. And the same have been on show at Chelsea as well with the 47 year old German persistently chopping and changing his playing 11 ever since taking over.
Its what worked for him and Chelsea as well with Tuchel completely transforming Chelsea’s form in just a couple of months. He’s made his side into a force to be reckoned with, a team which is yet to be defeated in the 12 matches Tuchel has lead the side in.
However, despite the club’s massively improved form, one area which continues to leave the side beleaguered is the attacking side of the game. The 0-0 draw against Leeds United at the weekend was a testament to that narrative with the side failing to make its chances count.
The club is yet to hit the ground running up the park with misfiring attacking players, Pulisic, Ziyech and Werner hardly helping Tuchel’s cause. However, Tuchel is said to have found a new solution to get his house in order.
Tuchel’s Carves Code Words
As per reports, Tuchel has foraged a new technique in a bid to leave opposition’s unaware of Chelsea’s gameplan. Tuchel is said to have developed codewords for Chelsea’s players, ones to be used while the club is venturing forward in attack.
The secret words are slated to be deployed in a bid to execute attacking plays without letting the opposition get a hint of what Chelsea are planning. Tuchel is said to ingrain in his players which passes to receive when attacking with code words specific to such layups being adopted by the side.
The reports emanating from England also state that the new method is already working its magic. A slew of Premier League players have said to have been left flabbergasted by the usage of the jargon by Chelsea’s players.
Chelsea will now be looking to make this advantage count into something meaningful as the side veers up to take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. The club holds a 1-0 advantage going into the second round of the showdown.
