|"You Want To Win" - Says Thomas Tuchel As He Charges Squad Ahead Of Super Cup by ochuski(m): 2:11am On Aug 11|
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has indicated that his team is excited to face Villarreal on Wednesday in a battle for European glory. Following their 1-0 Champions League final victory over Manchester City in May, the Blues may start the new season with a Super Cup victory over Unai Emery's side. Chelsea is hoping to build on their recent success and challenge on all fronts next season, with a number of prospective incomings set to be unveiled before the transfer market closes on August 31.
"You want to win as soon as you arrive. We must have the fortitude to fight Villarreal head-on. We'll put everything on the line and give it our all on the field. We have no way of knowing what will happen". Chelsea quoted Tuchel as saying.
With less than a week until Chelsea hosts Crystal Palace in their first league match of the season, the west Londoners will put their skills to the test against Villarreal, who won the Europa League on penalties against Manchester United (11-10). Despite the fact that Romelu Lukaku is set to be revealed as a Chelsea player in the next 48 hours, he has not been named in the Blues' squad to go to Belfast ahead of his anticipated move to Stamford Bridge, according to multiple sources.
The German manager has revealed the starting lineup for Wednesday's match against the La Liga side but has remained tight-lipped about Lukaku's impending arrival at Chelsea. Tuchel also gave an update on Tammy Abraham's future at the club, revealing that AS Roma and Arsenal are both interested in signing the 23-year-old midfielder.
