Chelsea Changes Play Into Man City And Liverpool FC Hands For Next Season
It is hard to argue that Chelsea’s model for chopping and changing managers under Roman Abramovic was not a hugely successful strategy.
Thomas Tuchel did in 2021 what Roberto di Matteo had managed nine years earlier and won the Champions League after only taking over in the middle of a campaign.
The fact that Chelsea reached two cup finals last season also suggests that they are one of the best teams in the country on their day and well capable of winning silverware.
However, it does not appear to be a coincidence that the Premier League title has not presided at Stamford Bridge for six years and counting.
The planning at the Etihad and Anfield has been so good for so long that they have become immune to the instant impact of a managerial change elsewhere.
That was the primary reason why City were so concerned with Chelsea’s activities last summer.
A team that had already beaten them in the Champions League final had paid just shy of £100m to bring in Romelu Lukaku and strengthen further, building on the success they had already had.
