Thomas Tuchel will find himself under pressure already if Chelsea lose to Burnley on Sunday.
That is according to former Manchester United and Blues star Paul Parker.
The German replaced Frank Lampard earlier this week after the club legend was dismissed.
Mixed results and failure to get the best out of big summer signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz led to Lampard’s downfall.
On Tuesday, former Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain boss Tuchel was named as his successor.
The 47-year-old had a quick turnaround and took charge of the Wolves game on Wednesday which ended 0-0.

After a few more training sessions Tuchel has a chance to record his first win as Chelsea boss against Burnley on Sunday.
A defeat, though, could pile pressure on Tuchel – despite him being in the job less than a week.

“Chelsea struggle to break down resolute sides as we saw in their game against Wolves and Burnley have a solid defence, but I don’t think that will be enough at the weekend,” Parker told Eurosport
“It sounds crazy but one point after two games would put the pressure on Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea.
“He can’t afford a poor result and that’s why I think the home side will take all three points.”
Luckily for Tuchel, though, Parker is predicting a 2-1 win for Chelsea.
