Chelsea have really been playing well since Thomas Tuchel took over as manager late in January this year, and it looks like he has got the majority of the players on his side and performing well.
The Blues are 90 minutes away from reaching a Champions League final tomorrow night, and they have also got to the final of the FA Cup and still in a great position to get top four in the Premier League this season.

So what has been the secret of Tuchel’s success this season since he came in? Well, it really is quite simple, according to central defender Andreas Christensen.
He believes they have just become ‘annoying’ to play against when they don’t have the ball, and they ‘just want to play’ when they do have the ball, making them a real attacking threat as well.
The Danish international was speaking ahead of the big Champions League match tomorrow night…
Christensen on Chelsea’s system: “When we don’t have the ball, we want to be annoying and a horrible team to play against. When we have the ball, we want to play.” Adds, Jorginho is a massive part of the way Chelsea play and describes him as a leader. #CFC #UCL
