Some Chelsea fans love what Tuchel shared after Brighton draw

'Exactly what we need', 'Super happy': Some Chelsea fans love what Tuchel shared after yesterday's 1-1 draw

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel shared after yesterday’s draw against Brighton that the entire squad will now have two days off – and some Blues fans on Twitter are delighted with the decision.

The Blues could only record a 1-1 draw during Tuesday night’s trip to Brighton in the Premier League. Adam Webster’s header cancelled out an opener from Hakim Ziyech.

For Chelsea, they’re now on a run of one win in seven league games during an intense run of fixtures. Incidentally, they’ve managed to qualify for the Carabao Cup final during that time.

It’s been the team’s poor league form that has massively dented the season, as it now looks like a top four race is on rather than a chase for the title.

Tuchel said in his post-match analysis of the Brighton result that Chelsea’s players will have Wednesday and Thursday off for rest.

The entire Blues group will return to training for Friday and Saturday ahead of this Sunday’s league contest at home to rivals Tottenham.

Chelsea fans agree with Tuchel

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media are completely behind the idea to give the squad a couple of days away from Cobam.

In fairness, there has been a ridiculous amount of games to get through. The London giants have played 15 matches since the start of December.

Yes, the depth of the squad at Stamford Bridge means Chelsea are more equipped than most to deal with an overload of fixtures. However, it’s impossible to factor in so many injuries and illnesses.

It’s going to be interesting to see the XI that Tuchel selects against Spurs after a below par display against Brighton, so the manager has got a little bit of time to contemplate his decisions.
