Thomas Tuchel evaluates the draw of the wolves

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is trying to turn the tide at the end of the Blues season by putting his players on extra training as reports of dressing room disruptions continue.

The club are on the verge of being officially taken over by Todd Boehly’s consortium for the huge £4.25billion fee and their new American owner was in the stands watching during Saturday’s dismal performance against Wolves at Stamford Bridge . Chelsea held a 2-0 lead for most of the game, only for a late surrender that saw them lose two points when Wolves equalised.

As a result, Tuchel has reportedly forced the players to come less than 24 hours later on their day off to put them through their paces with some extra training and a team briefing. The news comes as speculation mounts that tensions are running high within the blues ranks.

Rumors of a defeat between Tuchel and left-back Marcos Alonso have surfaced as the pair are believed to have exchanged verbal smacks before the Spain defender was sent off at half-time. While Chelsea have denied this is the case, The Sun sources close to Alonso claim the full-back has been made a scapegoat.

The Germany manager explained after the game that the decision to replace Alonso after just 45 minutes was more of a tactical change than something more serious. “Marcos wasn’t injured, it was just a decision we made. Azpi [Cesar Azpilicueta] got a yellow card and was very active in the first half but he was too offensive.”

Despite the alleged feud, Alonso is reportedly accepting of Tuchel’s decision to replace him and is fully focused on returning to the starting XI for Wednesday night’s trip to Leeds United. It remains to be seen whether his manager will be so lenient.

Chelsea’s game at Elland Road will be their last game in the Premier League before attention turns to cup affairs at the weekend as Jurgen Klopp’s small task awaits Liverpool in the FA Cup final. Tuchel will be desperate to end his side’s recent Wembley hoodoo after losing in their last five visits.

The tie with the Reds under the Wembley arch will be Chelsea’s 60th game of the season, meaning the likelihood of the season being further derailed by fatigue increases with each game week.
