Tuchel knows one thing for sure and that’s the profile of striker he needs to have a perfect squad
Chelsea suffered another low conversion rate with only Hakim Ziyech netting their both goals against Tottenham Hotspur who bounced back to level before full time.
Tuchel saw the game turn against him when he decided to clear most of the players who started the game as that introduced their defensive leaks.
During an interview after the game, Tuchel admitted to be seeing how things have been going and indeed need to make a change as soon as possible.
“We have young players in the offensive part of the game that we demand improve,” Tuchel said. “We are relaxed and aware of our situation at the same time.

“But not for any cost and not panic. Whatever happens, we will be competitive and we have trust in our guys.”
Tuchel then went on to indirectly describe Romelu Lukaku as the perfect striker he needs to fine tune his works.
“With the exit of Olivier Giroud, we could use a player who plays with their back to goal and it means we can add this direct style of play. It’s the sort of profile we don’t have in the squad that can be useful.”
Ross Barkley didn’t make the appearance today and Tuchel has addressed that everything is fine with the player as this was just the selection.
“Ross had his chance to play one half against Arsenal, the same as Danny Drinkwater, “Tuchel continued.
“We had the impression that Ruben deserves to be on the pitch today again and we wanted to give Bakayoko the chance to play.
“It was a non-selection. On Sunday we wrote the names down & we had 42 players in the building on Monday.
“So from then on we had to take decisions to provide quality & intelligent training for the three groups that below to us.”
