Tuchel on Timo...

https://www.goal.com/en/news/tuchel-admits-chelseas-possession-based-style-doesnt-suit/1nbk2viu91e2m1a4d0s6w8omm8

"Maybe it is our fault because we have a lot of possession and we push opponent teams very, very deep in their half so spaces are not too big," Tuchel said.

"The biggest strength of Timo is to attack the space behind the last line so it is maybe also our fault in the dominant game that we play in the moment, it is very natural that the spaces are closed by the opponents.

"A game like against Atletico, is there any team out there in the world that can close spaces like Atletico? I don’t know. This is not exactly the opponent that you wish for Timo to show all his skills, so what is left for him is to not lose faith and work for the team.

And that, in a nutshell, is why we never pulled the trigger with him.

Timo has deserved to start. Pulisic and Ziyech are way off form.
———————————————————————-
Yep. Werner hasn’t been great but he’s been involved in most of the goals we’ve scored under TT. Ziyech, Pulisic and Havertz have been struggling with injuries and form for some time now. Mount probably our only in form attacker (Cho as well at WB).
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yep... Despite Werner's failings he worries defenders and keeps them on edge. He remains our main attacking threat, which is an indictment of how poor other attackers have been.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ironic he drops him to the bench in this of all matches, were he probably will get space to attack on the break!

We’re playing United Brums

Ole’s bus isn’t going anywhere

They usually play on the front foot - it's their attacking play that's got them where they are at the moment as the defence is suspect (or has been).

I expect we'll have plenty of opportunities to hit them on the break today!

They do? They’re a counter-attacking team under Ole. They use their pace in attack to sucker punch teams

Could have used that pace 1st half Sidey. Just the sort of game Giroud shouldn't start, he's been completely ineffective this half!

You’re right Brums. Wasn’t expecting United to leave their half

I'd imagine we'll see him around the hour mark Sidey!

I dont think you are correct. He would suit Liverpool much more than us. Look at Salah. They are very similar players. The main difference being Werner's finishing or lack off. But in Germany that was not the case.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, I will say that Salah and Werner aren't very similar players aside from both being quick with similar movement on their respective side of the pitch. Salah is far more adept at receiving the ball in deeper positions and under pressure, he is far stronger too which allows this. I like Werner and think he could easily get a couple tonight due to our high line but salah has more more to his game in terms of goals he can score and bringing more to the party overall.
