Chelsea kicked off their Premier League campaign with a win over Everton but Thomas Tuchel is certainly not over-optimistic about this result.
The Blues beat Everton 1-0, courtesy of a penalty and to be honest, this was not the best performance for Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel.
They have signed some good players like Raheem Sterling and Koulibaly in the summer but the manager has made it clear that he needs even more signings to take this team to the next level.
“If we can add, we add. Maybe not necessarily midfielders as the first option but we are open for everything and I think we can use new energy, new legs and fresh input to bring us to a new level,” he said after the match.
“If not, then we will push this team but I think we could use some input and more quality. We are on it but we will not tell you!”

Will Chelsea be able to bag some new players?
Apart from Sterling and Koulibaly, Chelsea have also signed Marc Cucurella but it’s also true they have missed out on a hell lot of players.
People like Raphinha and Jules Kounde have actively snubbed them to join other teams and most importantly, Tuchel is yet to solve his attacking problems.
He allowed Romelu Lukaku to join Inter Milan but the manager has failed to bring in an apt replacement and if he can’t sign someone in time then this major void will be his side’s undoing this summer.
There’s no way someone like Kai Havertz or Sterling will be able to bag 25-30 goals in one season and without these numbers, Chelsea won’t even come close to challenging Man City or Liverpool.
Apart from the forward’s issue he also needs to sign a defender because Thiago Silva will be 38 in September.
