Tuchel’s Chelsea tenure begins with a goalless draw at home to Wolves


Chelsea have a new coach, but they’re still struggling in the Premier League.

After Frank Lampard was replaced by Thomas Tuchel this week, the German took charge of his first match with the Blues and oversaw a fairly dull goalless draw.

Chelsea dominated possession in this game with 79 percent of the ball and a record for this Premier League season of 820 successful passes, but struggled to create clear chances.

Antonio Rudiger and Callum Hudson-Odoi both tested Rui Patricio, while Ben Chilwell fired another effort over the bar.

Wolves, meanwhile, came closest to scoring as Pedro Neto hit the crossbar in the 71st minute after a poor ball out from Edouard Mendy.

Willian Jose also came on for Wolves to make his debut, but didn’t have much time to make an impact as his new side held on for a point.
