Thomas Tuchel made Premier League history after Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Everton this evening, as @OptaJoe reports on Twitter.
When Frank Lampard was sacked as Chelsea manager at the end of January, it was not a popular decision from the Blues’ faithful’s standpoint, as you’d expect.
Lampard is a hero to the Chelsea supporters as a result of all he achieved as a player, but it just didn’t work out for him in the Stamford Bridge hot seat.
Thomas Tuchel, recently sacked by Paris Saint-Germain, was appointed as his replacement, and what a great decision it’s proven to be from the Chelsea board.
Chelsea strengthened their grip on their top four position with a victory over Everton at Stamford Bridge tonight, and in the process, Tuchel made history.
It’ll count for nothing if Tuchel doesn’t build on this and have a successful career at Chelsea, but all the signs are positive. The Blues could be building something special under the German.
