Ranking every Chelsea boss under Abramovich by PPG: Tuchel 5th

Quick Reads
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, December 19, 2021, Molineux, Wolverhampton

Chelsea have enjoyed the most successful period in the club’s history since Roman Abramovich took over the club. During that time the Blues have often been ruthless when it comes to changes in the dugout, but which of 13 managers fared best and worst?

Frank Lampard played a key role in the glory days of the Abramovich era becoming the club’s all-time top scorer during his playing days.

Having arrived in the dugout during a transfer ban, Lampard left with credit for bringing through the academy graduates whilst qualifying the club for a Champions League that they famously won under his successor, Thomas Tuchel.

Results picked up dramatically under Tuchel, but where does the current boss rank in terms of points-per-game? You might be surprised who comes out on top.
