Despite Chelsea’s impressive form under Thomas Tuchel, the Blues are yet to be show efficiency and consistency in front of goal.
Thomas Tuchel insists it is his responsibility to get Chelsea forwards firing on all cylinders.
Despite an unbeaten start to life at Stamford Bridge, question marks remain about the Blues moving forward. For the most part, the Blues have struggled to score goals and have mostly won by very narrow margins.
A goalless draw against Leeds at the weekend was the second game out of their last four that Chelsea have failed to score.
Despite concerns on that end, Tuchel is not all that bothered as he continues to see the ‘right steps’ from his forwards. The German manager remains confident of a positive change upfront soon enough.
He said to the club’s website: “It’s a unique position and a sensitive position so I truly believe that it’s not so important just training them to shake their goalscoring mentality,’ said Tuchel on the art of extracting more from his strikers.”
“We’re here to help everybody and at the moment for us, it’s important to keep their focus on the process. We can’t just look at the result of ‘is the ball in or not?’ but instead it’s the process that matters to escape the pressure they sometimes put on themselves.”
“The process is good decision-making, good technique, good vision, and if you focus on these points then the result will take care of itself and it means you will find the back of the net.”
“That’s what we try to implement and how we try to help. Of course we have some exercises to help them in training in terms of finishing but in the end it’s clear that you talk whatever you want and show videos but for a striker, the most important thing is to score. This is the last percentage that he needs to be at full confidence and there is no substitute for that.”
Struggles in front of goal has seen reports link Chelsea to a certain goal machine in Erling Haaland. However, Tuchel says he remains happy with the options at his disposal.
