TODAY marks exactly one year since Thomas Tuchel took charge of Chelsea, during which he led the Blues to Champions League glory.
Mourinho had two spells as manager at Stamford Bridge, winning three Premier Leagueone FA Cup and three League Cups in total, but the Champions League has always eluded him.
Tuchel while jumping in and Old Big Ears cạp within five months of being appointed.
And he will likely add another medal to his collection in the not-too-distant future, with the Blues in League Cup Final action against Liverpool next month.
But when it comes to numbers, there really isn’t much between the two managers.
Tuchel has worked for 67 games, about half the games Mourinho managed in his second season, and is seeing his side score an average of 1.7 goals per game.
That number is slightly less than Mourinho, who oversaw a very consistent 1.8 goals/game performance in both periods as boss.
Tuchel’s side are also conceding an impressive 0.6 goals per game, matching Mourinho’s high standards from his first stint at the club.
Despite winning the Premier League and League Cup in a win back to Chelsea, Mourinho’s second season may not have been so successful.
That’s evident in the numbers, with his defense far more open the second time around, conceding 0.9 goals per game.
And while Mourinho may have built a reputation for teams that are well organized and hard to break, it is in fact Tuchel who boasts a better percentage of clean sheets.
His impressive 54% of games have resulted in suspension, compared with 51% in Mourinho’s first spell and just 44% in the second.
But the Portuguese’s win rate in the first is unbeatable.
The ‘Special One’ boasts an incredible 67% win rate between 2004-2007.
Part of that is largely down to Chelsea’s mind 86 matches unbeaten at home at Prem from 2004 to 2008, much of which was overseen by Mourinho.
Tuchel, meanwhile, has a slightly lower win rate of 60%, but this is still higher than Mourinho’s record of 59% since his second stint as boss.
Tuchel’s numbers would have been even more impressive if it weren’t for the lightness of recent weeks.
The Blues failed to win four Premier League matches until 2-0 victory over bitter rival Tottenham on Sunday.
