MetiNews.Com - Chelsea will be aiming to recover from FA Cup final disappointment in time to bounce back against Leicester in the Premier League on Tuesday
Breaking News ! Here is the Chelsea morning digest for Monday, May 17. Worrying Thomas Tuchel record ahead of Champions League final Thomas Tuchel has been nothing short of remarkable since he touched down in West London, at which time Chelsea were tenth. Five months later and he has guided them to within touching distance of Champions League qualification via the top four, as well as the final of European club football's most elite competition. However, he has now also endured his first cup final heartache as Chelsea boss, something he is all too familiar with from his tenures at previous clubs.

Two of the three wins were with a star-studded PSG line-up. The German boss has long been accused of adopting far too cautious of an approach in one-off games, none of his final victories have been decided by more than one goal. One of his victories, the 2020 French League cup, was an unconvincing 0-0 performance that PSG eventually won on penalties. Read the full story on Tuchel's disappointing record in cup finals here. Mason Mount left frustrated with Timo Werner Neither Mason Mount or Timo Werner enjoyed their finest display in a Chelsea shirt in Saturday's cup final, though the latter has certainly found them harder to come by in general. While Mount came close to levelling the scores, denied by a stunning Kasper Schmeichel stop, Werner struggled to really threaten the Foxes, despite having much of the ball.

Ian Wright agrees with Tuchel on Reece James There were few positives from Chelsea's cup final performance, with many of the traits that have made them a force under Tuchel not on display against Leicester. Reece James was one of the few in a Blues shirt to come away with his head held high given his transition into a more central defensive role as the game went on, the young right-back came in for some praise from both his manager and pundit Ian Wright after the defeat.

When discussing that tactical shift: "Reecey played in the back three and we put Azpi [Cesar Azpilicueta] up higher. They changed the position because we know about the favourite position of Jamie Vardy in transition and we wanted to have Reecey’s power, Reecey’s acceleration, and top speed against him to eliminate this threat." Wright heralded James' ability to keep Vardy quiet for much of the contest. Read the full story by clicking here.
