Tuchel praised for reviving Chelsea careers of senior trio

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has praised manager Thomas Tuchel for reviving the careers of three players.

After victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday, Cascarino believes that Tuchel needs to be credited with getting the best out of his current squad, and for his decision-making in the transfer market.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Cascarino said: “Pulisic played centre-forward yesterday, scored a goal and caused havoc.

“Alonso wasn't seemingly wanted anymore at Chelsea. Ends up being a player for them and was offered as being part of the Lukaku deal, and they've kept him. I've seen him play so well for Chelsea and I thought he was finished at the football club."

Cascarino continued: “I thought Azpilicueta was finished at the football club and he played wing-back yesterday. Chelsea are a really good side."
