Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea manager, in an interview, he said that his ageing defenders struggled against Everton in yesterday’s game on Saturday.
Tuchel said, Jorginho’s penalty was enough for the Blues to win 1-0 at Goodison Park in their first Premier League opener. He has already lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen on free transfers this summer.
However, Chelsea have signed Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella to bolster their backline.
Koulibaly, Thiago Silva and captain Cesar Azpilicueta started in a three-man defence against Everton.
“All three of our players in the back three are in their 30s and we struggled a bit in general at the end of the game.
“We need to improve our physical level and we are on it,” Tuchel said.
