Stats show Chelsea are the most in-form team in the Premier League since Tuchel arrived

Perhaps not coincidentally, Chelsea chose a great moment to sack Frank Lampard. The club had just ended itโ€™s most difficult period of the season, both in terms of fixtures and results; and were about to head into this softer period.

Thomas Tuchel has taken full advantage of playing some of the weaker teams, and heโ€™s well and truly hit the ground running. The players look energised again, and theyโ€™ve had the best form in the league.

The stats that Sky Sports highlighted after the game showed just how huge the transformation has been:

The team are not conceding too many shots, theyโ€™re getting the ball forward, and in a time when their rivals are struggling, theyโ€™re impressing.

Of course the real test will be when we take on tougher teams, but this is better than we could have expected for the little time the new man has been in charge, and itโ€™s exciting to think where we could be in a month or so โ€“ let alone next season
