Chelsea midfielder Kovacic: The differences between Tuchel and Lampard

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic is happy with his football under manager Thomas Tuchel.

Kovacic has discussed the differences between Tuchel and previous boss Frank Lampard.

He told the club's website: “I think we've improved a lot in the last three games, we've got seven points. But we need to go game by game and try to be as up as possible and I think we can do it.

“I think we have little problems – we didn't score against Burnley as well. In the last 15 minutes we were 1-0 up and it could be even more.

“This is a thing we need to improve, to finish games. I think this is one thing we will work a lot on.

“He [Tuchel] explained to us what he wants. It's exactly that – to play fast forward, to create chances, to be in the opposition's half.

“I think we've improved a lot in the last three games but I think we can be even better & be even more confident.

“In the games coming, we will be even better and we need to even better because we can do it."
