Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel play quite a distinctive system, and today they come up against an equally distinctive – if tactically different – style of play.
Man U will look to break fast on the counter at Stamford Bridge, while Chelsea control possession. Before the game Olivier Giroud was asked about how Tuchel had told his team to try and cope.
The forward went into some detail about how the pressing was going to work – but with a cheeky smile to Geoff Shreeves admitted “I won’t tell you everything.”
Let’s hope TT has something special up his sleeve.

🗣 "Counter pressing, trying to get the ball back higher on the pitch, don't give space to the counter attack…but I won't tell you everything." 👀 🤣
