Thomas Tuchel argues that Chelsea doesn’t need to purchase a midfielder or a striker.

Thomas Tuchel has refuted the notion that Chelsea needs to buy a striker or a midfielder before the transfer window shuts.

The Blues’ discouraging 3-0 loss to Leeds at Elland Road after three games pushed Tuchel’s squad into the lower part of the Premier League rankings.

The Chelsea offensive combination of Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount, and Kai Havertz, who played as the false nine, once again fell short.

When asked if the result showed that the forward zones needed to be strengthened, Tuchel answered, “No, no.

Conor Gallagher made his first start for Chelsea in midfield alongside Jorginho, but the Englishman struggled.

Tuchel said that his club is well-stocked when asked whether the Blues will try to increase the depth of their midfield before the transfer window closes.

One more midfielders? There is availability for Jorginho, N’golo Kante, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Kovacic, Mateo, and Gallagher

“There is a problem since they [Kante and Kovacic] are hurt. But they’re coming back. They are still there.”

At one point in the second half, Leeds had run 11 km more than Chelsea. Tuchel, though, shrugged off the idea that the Blues’ effort fell short of that of their hosts.

“We succumbed from a really cheap set-piece, scored an own goal, then threw it away,” the German continued. This has nothing to do with the Leeds way of life or pushing oneself to do fewer kilometers of running. These should not be mixed up.

“We were able to adjust to the playing style, prove that we were the superior side, and go up one or two goals, but we give up an own goal, and the set-piece has no bearing.

From that point on, Leeds is confident more than ever. Even in the five minutes before kickoff, our body language had changed from the last game.
