Chelsea have played three pre-season games so far, and the performances have been far from encouraging.

Chelsea first defeated Mexican side Club America 2-1, before playing a 1-1 draw with MLS side Charlotte FC.

The friendly game against Arsenal on Sunday morning definitely exposed the team, as Thomas Tuchel’s side were beaten 4-0.

Speaking after the game, Tuchel emphasised the need for signings, as he said that the Chelsea team needs to be strengthened.

He said: “My analysing of the season does not change because of this game. Unfortunately, it proved my point.

“The last week proves my point. I would absolutely prefer not to be right. I did everything to prove myself wrong but at the moment I feel that I was right.

“I look at the last season and parts of the game where we struggled, parts of the season where we struggled, and then we got sanctioned and players left us and some players are trying to leave us, and this is where it is.

“So we had an urgent appeal for quality players, a huge amount of quality players. We got two quality players but we are not competitive like this. Unfortunately you could see it today.”
