Chelsea suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion in their latest English Premier League match, which saw them drop to 5th position on the table and could be 6th if Manchester United should win their match later in the day.
The team’s poor start to the match saw them concede an early goal from Leandro Trossard while a further abysmal display saw Ruben Loftus Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah score own goals. Kai Havertz did try to get his team back into the game when he scored but a stoppage time goal from Pascal Gross compounded Chelsea to a 4 – 1 loss which would not have been so under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel.
Below are the reasons why Thomas Tuchel was a better coach to Chelsea than Graham Potter
Throughout Tuchel’s spell in charge of Chelsea, he never lost a single match against Brighton but on the first occasion of Potter leading Chelsea to face Brighton, he lost woefully and in a humiliating manner. Had Tuchel been in charge, he would never have lost with that margin to Brighton as his record against the club is evident, 3 draws in 3 meetings.
Under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have never conceded two own goals in the same match but in just a few matches at the club, Potter already has such a negative record and that speaks volume of his capabilities to lead the club to a desired glory.
Finally, while playing under Thomas Tuchel at Borussia Dortmund, Aubameyang was a goal machine and that was why he brought him back to EPL under Chelsea but didn’t play much with him. However, he is not the lethal goal scorer he was for Tuchel under Potter and that shows that Tuchel is a better coach than Potter.
