Comparing Tuchel’s first 25 games as Chelsea manager to Jose Mourinho’s

Quick Reads

Thomas Tuchel has had a huge impact since taking the reigns at Stamford Bridge and replacing Frank Lampard as manager of Chelsea.

But how do his first 25 games in all competitions compare to Jose Mourinho’s? A man who won back-to-back Premier League titles in his first two seasons at Stamford Bridge. We’ve taken a look at their records to see who comes out on top.
