They could very well be one of those teams that wins regularly against the other top teams, but struggles when they have teams that sit back and let them come onto them.
Already been proven this year, West Brom, Leicester, Villa have all beaten them recently. No team is unbeatable, Tuchel just knows how to win important one off games sadly and it looks like hes got Peps number at the minute, we better hope it changes.

Can't help but imagine the look on Tuchel's face when he saw our line-up - he must've thought someone was taking the piss. Well done, Pep.

Congratulations Chelsea.

3 defeats to them in 6 weeks, regardless of the teams put out, is not a pleasant stat to read. Unfortunately they have our number at the moment, much like how liverpool did for a while and united seem to do in derbies. Where i do think they'll struggle is actually against the lesser teams, that sit back and play them at their own game! Well deserving winners last night though, no doubt about that.

I get the distinct impression he neither likes, nor respects Pep.

What gives you that impression, hes spent basically his whole managerial career talking about Pep. Outside of Pep he probably knows more about Pep then anyone in the world.

Tuchel, does not get Chelsea to play the way they do against City when they take on the likes of WBA, Villa and Leicester. Chelsea are more open, try to have a go and can be beaten. Tuchel is afraid of City and what City can do and what City actually do to their opponants. It's a modern take of the catenaccio which Inter took it's oppresvive best under Herrera. Ironically Jock Steins Celtic beat Inter in the European Cup final after going one nil down by using a highly attacking varation of total footabll.

Pep Guardiloa is a football nerd/obsessive, he has probably already got ideas bubbling away on how to combat Chelsea's grind and defeat Chelsea's style. Pep will get City to be like water and Tuchel's dam will be breached.

That’s why Chelsea won’t win the league ........ when teams do exactly the same to them then they don’t have an idea ......... Leicester did it to them in the cup final and Chelsea didn’t know how to overcome it ............. honestly give it 18 months and they will want him out he’s just another Jose all sunshine a glory at the start but once teams suss him out he won’t know how to combat it ........

Yep that's where Pep stands out over a season he adapts but one off games sometimes he over does it but he will learn from this and I expect us to back in the final again next year.
