‘He’s having much more impact on games now’: Tuchel applauds Saul progress

“The game against Tottenham was a huge step forward for Saul and he showed what he can do with his abilities,” Thomas Tuchel told Chelsea’s official website.

“Against Chesterfield he was part of a strong squad. Okay, it was against a fifth division side so there was no need for us to be overran in midfield but he still did well with his performance.

“I see more confidence in him with each game, he is in good shape and his adaptation to the way we play has gone further from before.

“You can see this in his game now. He is more open, he understands the language better now and these are all important things to consider when talking about Saul and how much he has improved recently.

“He is having much more impact on games than he was doing at the beginning of the season and this is very important because I’m convinced we will need every player to compete in every competition from now until the end of the season, especially at the moment where we are playing every three days.”

The Atletico Madrid loanee has featured in about 13 games across all competitions for Chelsea this season with just 8 starts. So far he is yet to record a goal contribution.

But Saul seems to have significantly improved recently compared to his earlier terrible performances like the ones against Villa or Zenit.

However, his recent performance is worth commending but the Blues are not planning to make the midfielder’s move permanent after the end of this season.
