Chelsea has been outstanding defensively this season, and their top defenders appear to have performed admirably under Tuchel. They are the second team in the Premier League with the fewest goals conceded.
Thomas Tuchel has conceded 16 goals in the league, trailing just Manchester City (13). The defense has been crucial this season and last season when the German manager won two trophies with the Blues.
Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, and Antonio Rudiger have all performed admirably under the German tactician. They are solid at the back and keep clean sheets, guaranteeing that the squad wins big.
They’ve all been clinical at Stamford Bridge, but there’s one star who has improved significantly and has proven difficult to defeat for most strikers and forwards. Trevoh Chalobah, an English center-back, has emerged as a standout defender for Chelsea this season, outperforming Rudiger and Azpilicueta in terms of defensive impact.
Chalobah has seen more playing time under Thomas Tuchel, who has placed his trust in the 22-year-old defender. He’s strong at the back, his tackling is precise, he’s good at ball recovery, he’s stable, strong, and he’s a decent passer.
The Chelsea academy product is constantly striving to be at the peak of his game and one of Europe’s best defenders. Chelsea seldom scores in a match when he is in the starting lineup owing to his incredible work and leadership at the defense despite being 22 years old. Chalobah, like John Terry, has the potential to become a huge star.
