Ex-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has raved about the job Thomas Tuchel has done at Stamford Bridge since he replaced Frank Lampard as Chelsea head coach towards the end of January.
In his first 22 games in charge, Tuchel has overseen 14 wins, just two defeats and 16 clean sheets, all of which highlight just how good a job he has done in west London so far.
His unbeaten run continued yesterday as well, when Chelsea played a 1-1 draw at Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals.
Now, former Gunners chief Wenger, who continues to work as a TV pundit following his exit from the Emirates Stadium in 2018, has closely analysed the differences he has seen in Chelsea since Tuchel succeeded Lampard.
“It is a team that has been submitted to many changes and when you change more than three players it takes you more time to create a cohesion and it is very difficult to imagine how the team would have progressed under Frank Lampard,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
“The only thing you can say is that Tuchel has done a good job by having created a good cohesion, a good belief and stimulated the hunger of the team.
“They look confident at the moment and I think you have to give him credit for that.”
