No Comparing Lukaku And Kane As Striker -Tuchel

Published

on

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says there’s no comparing Romelu Lukaku and Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

The two teams meet on Sunday.

Comparing the two 28-year-olds Tuchel said: “There’s one big similarity: they score decisive goals. ‘They love scoring and they always have scored no matter the competition.

“Apart from this they are very different players, different styles of play.

“And we need to be very focused if Harry Kane plays, on how to defend, where to close him down, when you close the deliveries down.

“Once he has the ball he’s one of the most dangerous guys in the world to finish attacks, he’s fantastic in conversion.

“And there are some players around him who deliver well, and can also be decisive.

“Let’s see if Heung-min Son can play, because he can also be decisive.

“But we have also some guys around Romelu who are able to serve him and deliver good performances.

“In the end it’s a team effort, and it will always be like this.”

UCL: Chelsea Will Be Difficult To Overcome In Milan, Says Kaka

Published

on

Real Madrid and AC Milan’s former midfielder, Kaka has hailed ‘very consistent’ Chelsea following their defeat of AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Brazilian, a former AC Milan player, admitted the Blues ‘deserved’ to beat the Italian side.

It was Chelsea’s first win in the Champions League under Potter, thanks to goals from Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James.

The Italians will likely need to beat Graham Potter’s men in the reverse fixture next week to stand any chance of reaching the last 16.

“Chelsea deserved that result, said Kaka.

“I think they have a very consistent game they controlled the game the whole time. They didn’t create many opportunities but they took advantage of the opportunities they had.

“Most of them [chances] conceded by Milan and we were talking about the absence of the players and it’s important to keep the players that couldn’t play tonight but for Milan, it was a poor game.
