Chelsea boss Tuchel hints at his plan for Christian Pulisic ahead of Super Cup Game

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said his decision to deploy Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi as wing-backs against Arsenal was part of the preparation for the upcoming UEFA Super Cup clash against Villarreal.

The Blues will only have eight to nine days before having to travel to Belfast to face the Europa League winners.

A number of players, including Thiago Silva and Jorginho, are yet to return for the pre-season following their involvement in the Copa America and the Euro 2020 finals.

While the academy players and returning loanees have helped fill the void so far, Tuchel still faces a selection headache, particularly in the wing-back positions.

Reece James, Ben Chilwell, and Emerson Palmieri are yet to return, Cesar Azpilicueta is still lacking sharpness, while Marcos Alonso seems to have an injury or fitness issue.

As a result, Tuchel admitted that he had to prepare a Plan B, in case the aforementioned players will not be available for the Super Cup match.

The Plan B is to play Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi in wing-backs positions, exactly what Tuchel did in the 2-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday.
