Chelsea legend tells Thomas Tuchel his best front three but names the signing he’d add to it

Chelsea legend Alan Hudson claims Thomas Tuchel's strongest front three will emerge as a result of the team's recent dominance.

Since taking over from Frank Lampard in January, the new Blues manager has made a huge impact at Stamford Bridge, though he has yet to really settle on his best XI.

Tuchel continues to switch things up a lot, and he's used players like Kai Havertz and Mason Mount in a variety of positions.


    Most of the team's players have improved significantly since Tuchel took over, with Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic proving their worth to the team, while Hakim Ziyech has also had his moments.

    Overall, Hudson believes Werner, Havertz, and Ziyech are Chelsea's strongest front three right now.

    “Tuchel should stick with Werner because his speed created major problems for Man City's back four,” Hudson told CaughtOffside.

    “Havertz is on a roll right now, so that leaves Ziyech, who is chasing his third goal against City in three games – quite an achievement! It chooses itself! ”

    Hudson, on the other hand, mentioned that he would like to bring in an established Premier League striker like Harry Kane this summer to bolster the team's front three.

    Chelsea has signed a number of young foreign players in recent years, including Havertz and Pulisic, but Hudson now wants to see someone more seasoned and at ease in this league enter.

    “There was a lot of conversation about Harry Kane this morning,” Hudson said. “Chelsea would expect to bring in someone of his size, great talent, and established ability, rather than another player who must prove his ability to play in the Premier League.

    “They've had to wait long enough for their new players to adjust, and now they've brought in a proper No. 9 who can get you 30 goals per season.”

    After a poor lack of goals from Werner in particular, Chelsea will definitely benefit from improving up front next season, and we've made the case for Patson Daka being an ideal signing here.

    Finally, Hudson praised Chelsea youngster Billy Gilmour for his performance in the victory over Manchester City.

    “The young lad is increasing in height, just as Frank Lampard predicted,” Hudson said. “Tuchel can rely on him to come in alongside the ever-dependable Kante, who has been brilliant.

    “Gilmour is an old-school player who excels at the basic stuff – nothing remarkable, only playing the game properly.”
