Chelsea forward Timo Werner has revealed they feared for their top four chances under ex manager Frank Lampard.
Chelsea have now won three out of four matches under Thomas Tuchel, since the departure of Lampard.
Werner while speaking after their latest win, a 2-1 victory over Sheffield United, said they are now pleased to piling the pressure back on their rivals.
“If we go back three or four matches, when the manager was not yet here, we were nine or ten points behind the top four,” Werner told Chelsea’s 5th Stand app.
“We watched the table and were like, ‘oh, it might not be so good at the end of the season’.
“Now we are really good, back in shape, and I think if we keep going like this we can put more pressure on the other teams.”
