‘That’s way too strong’ – These Chelsea fans criticise Tuchel’s lack of rotation against Malmo

Posted by

Chelsea trail Champions League Group H leaders, Juventus, by three points ahead of the west Londoners’ game against Malmo on Wednesday night.

That perhaps hints at one of the reasons why Blues manager, Thomas Tuchel, has named an incredibly strong line-up to play the group whipping boys.

The match isn’t quite a must win at this point, though another three points will set Chelsea up nicely for the final three fixtures, and give them a decent chance of overhauling the Italian giants by the end of the group stage to end in top spot.

Selecting Romelu Lukaku is an interesting choice from the German, however.

Just a day ago, Sky Sports were reporting Tuchel’s pre-match press conference where he noted that his star striker was “mentally tired” after having played so many games since his move from Internazionale.

In a game that Chelsea might be expected to win without the Belgian in situ, with respect, surely Tuchel would’ve been better off leaving Lukaku on the bench, only to be brought on if required.

Chelsea’s supporters certainly weren’t happy with a lack of rotation.
