RIO FERDINAND claims Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is in dangerous unchartered waters after two straight defeats.
Ahead of the Blues’ Stamford Bridge clash with Southampton this Saturday, Manchester United legend Ferdinand told BT Sport: “This is the conundrum Tuchel has to unpick.
“He’s had it all his own way. He hasn’t been in a position where people are questioning his team.
“His front players didn’t have the spark (at Juve).”
But former England defender Ferdy is sure Tuchel is still the man to restore Chelsea to title challengers.
He added: “I don’t have any worries about Thomas Tuchel.

“I think he’s fabulous and he deserves all the time given what he’s done with a Champions League winning team.”
Tuchel himself called the Blues’ off-colour showing in midweek “strange”.
He said: “We’re all disappointed. It was the tough game we expected.
“You have to play with zero mistakes in midfield and take the risks in the right moment. To do this you need to be in rhythm, good decision-making.
‘I didn’t feel us fresh, mentally… I don’t know why.”
