Thomas Tuchel has been told what his undroppable trio will be at Chelsea after Wolves draw.
Blues newly appointed boss managed to pick up a point in his first game in charge as they played a 0-0 draw with Wolves.
BT Sport pundits Rio Ferdinand and Peter Crouch agree that Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi are Tuchel’s udroppables for Chelsea.
“He’s (Hudson-Odoi) gonna have to get out on the training pitch, get his coaching tactical board out and make sure that the guys understand it’s not all about possession,” Ferdinand said. “You’re gonna wanna hurt and penetrate teams, we said that at half-time and there wasn’t much more until Pulisic and Mount came on.
“Listen, we can’t judge him on this game. It’s the best I’ve seen Hudson-Odoi tonight, he was their most creative player, he was the outlet.
“I think what he would’ve learned that he’s gone for experience today, but Mason Mount and Pulisic are the people that are gonna give him the thrust up the pitch.”
Crouch agreed with Ferdinand.
“Wolves came for the draw, they were so defensive. They just weren’t quick enough, moving it through the lines, as Rio said,” Crouch added. “I think he’ll quickly realise that Mason Mount has been one of their most creative players this season and I’m sure he’ll quickly get back in the team.
“Hudson-Odoi was a really big plus point tonight.”
