With the season coming to an end Thomas Tuchel has placed his focused on building a strong squad ahead of next season.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said he is focused on build a strong squad for next season as the team prepare for the last Premier League match against Watford.

The Blues have gone through lots of issues from having two cups slip through their hands and also losing former owner Roman Abramovich.

Tuchel feels the Blues have performed well given some of the circumstances but also wants improvement for next season.

He further said recruitment is one area he hopes to press on with once the final whistle blows on Sunday afternoon.

“Of course I think we can do better,” Tuchel explained ahead of tomorrow’s final Premier League outing.

“It’s not by much, there are fine margins, but we will look positively into the new season. It’s not the moment to analyse everything from this season right now because I don’t have all the answers.

“There are things we would have changed before anyway. We’ve struggled obviously with efficiency, with our goalscoring records, with consistency, with determination and precision in the box against teams who defend deep. Lot of things like this.

“It never stopped for us so maybe it just needs to change that we have everybody available where we can but it’s difficult when you play so many games and it’s the same for all the top teams.”

Tuchel pinpoint title contenders Liverpool and Manchester City style of strengthen their squad which he believe will make their team even more stronger for next season.

“You look at the top teams and they look to combat this by making their existing squads stronger. Liverpool bought a fantastic player [Luis Diaz] in January to improve and Man City have signed [Erling] Haaland for next season to make them stronger.”

The likes of Anthony Rudiger and Christensen are reportedly going to leave the club this summer which give Tuchel a bit of concern.

“We are losing players so, at the moment, my focus is to build a strong team and to see what’s even possible and then we can think about how we close the gap to the top.”
