Tuchel tantalisingly close to achieving Chelsea's Mission: Impossible

 

 
Dreams of a top-four finish may have been far-fetched when the coach was appointed but, thanks to their win over Leicester, they are nearly there

Despite a dodgy run of results, Chelsea are back on track to qualify for the Champions League after beating Leicester City 2-1 in a crucial Premier League top-four showdown at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

After defeats against Arsenal in the league and Leicester in the FA Cup final, Blues coach Thomas Tuchel has got the team going again and can now boast of taking the side from 10th when he took over at the end of January to third with just one league game left before the Champions League final looms into focus.

Antonio Rudiger and a penalty from Jorginho meant Chelsea could be positive heading into the final game of the season, away at Aston Villa, but Tuchel’s side were made to squirm when Kelechi Iheanacho scored ahead of a bad-tempered finish.
