Thomas Tuchel has hinted that he will continue to use the same formation with Chelsea next season.
Since making a move to Stamford Bridge, the German boss used to play the back three with wing-backs and an attacking trio. It worked as the Blues showed their dominance by winning the Champions League.
The next campaign, though, was a difficult one as Tuchel’s side faced an injury crisis that had a huge impact on the team.
“I don’t think it’s a problem of structure that we have because we delivered on a very high level with performances,” the manager said, via The Chelsea Chronicle.
“We’re looking in every direction but I think the structure (of three at the back) suits our players very well like Thiago Silva and our midfielders in the build-up, as well as Reece James and Ben Chilwell because they have a bit more freedom to attack on the sides.”
