Thomas Tuchel sets new EPL record as Chelsea beat West Ham United

Thomas Tuchel led Chelsea team were in action yesterday against David Moyes’ West Ham United team at the London Stadium in their 33rd league game of the current campaign.

The Blues in the game were very impressive as they put up physical, tactical and technical displays over the host of the day which earned them a narrow but well deserved win.

The London club after the game secured the 4th spot on the EPL table, as they looked more formidable as the season is running to an end with five games left to be played.

Chelsea have really been enjoying a stellar performance under their German tactician, Thomas Tuchel since he took charge the helm of affairs at the Stamford Bridge.

They are once again at their very best against in-form West Ham United with Timo Werner the hero of the day, as his only goal scored in the first half sealed and secured the crucial away win for the Blues.

The first half of the game was very fascinating as there was nothing to separate the two sides until the late minute to the end of the first 45 minutes, when Been Chilwell set up the German maestro in the 43rd minutes to make it one nil into the half time break.

With all chances created in the second half from both ends to add to the tally of the game, none was successful as it ended one nil at full time.

The only goal in the game that sealed the win for Chelsea was the German’s first goal since February 15 and his first in 16 away appearances, since last October against Burnley.

This was Chelsea’s 10th clean sheet in just their 14th Premier League match under Thomas Tuchel, equalling the quickest a manager has recorded 10 clean sheets in Premier League history – Luiz Felipe Scolari also achieved this feat in 14 games back in 2008.

Thomas Tuchel with the brilliant result of the day has now set a record in the premier league history as the second manager with such feat.

Thomas Tuchel is unbeaten in all 10 away matches with Chelsea (W8 D2) and is only the second manager in Premier League history to remain unbeaten in his first 10 away games in all competitions with a club, after Claudio Ranieri with Leicester City in 2015 (11).

Within this period under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have managed to scored 14 goals, conceded 3 goals and kept 7 clean sheets which was really a morale booster going into their UEFA champions league semi-finals ties with Spanish La Liga Santander champion, Real Madrid comes next Tuesday.

The win for the Blues has now placed them outrightly at the 4th spot on the EPL table with 58 points in 33 games played, and as such be optimistic to keep their winning streaks going to cement their spot in the battle for the top four race.

Chelsea will now be focused on Tuesday, ready to face a test of time against the Zinedine Zidane’s side in the first leg of the UCL semi-finals ties.
