“Trust the manager” – Most Chelsea fans back controversial Tuchel decision, but some are not happy

Posted by

Loads of Chelsea fans are discussing the surprise absence of left-back Ben Chilwell so far this season as manager Thomas Tuchel surprisingly seems to prefer Marcos Alonso in that position.

Chilwell joined Chelsea from Leicester City last summer in what looked an exciting move by the Blues, with an upgrade on Alonso looking like a bit of a no-brainer after the Spaniard’s dip in form.

Now, however, Alonso seems firmly ahead of Chilwell in the pecking order and it’s led to confusion amongst many Blues supporters on Twitter.

At the same time, though, a lot of fans insist that Tuchel should be trusted after the immense success he’s had at Stamford Bridge so far, which is hard to argue with, in fairness.

Chilwell must be surprised at the situation and will perhaps start to have doubts over his future if things don’t improve soon.

One imagines the England international would get plenty of playing time at most other Premier League clubs, and a talent like him surely won’t be content to remain at Chelsea if he’s only a backup.

This could be a concern, but it’s fair to say the situation is getting a bit of a mixed response among supporters on social media…
