Chelsea players have reportedly adopted a strange method in a bid to ensure that they are comfortable in their football boots. This is according to the publication from The Sun which stated that Chelsea players put their football boots in the microwave oven to ensure that they are comfortable in the football boots when they are on the pitch. The Chelsea players have adopted a strange method for their football boots as they attempt to break free from this period of cold weather and stay in touch with their targets in the FA Cup, the Champions League and the Premier League. Chelsea have seen a significant improvement in form since German manager Thomas Tuchel was appointed into the role of Chelsea manager at the start of last month. Thomas Tuchel replaced club legend Frank Lampard, who was let go by the Blues hierarchy after a string of poor results in the Premier League. At the point of his sack, Chelsea were in danger of not making the Champions League for next season but that has changed with Thomas Tuchel in charge.
Thomas Tuchel has led Chelsea back to Champions League contention with a run of four wins and two draws from the six league games played under him. As things stand, Chelsea are just two points off the final Champions League place occupied by London rivals West Ham United. The Hammers occupy the fourth and final Champions League place. The Blues are already in the FA Cup quarterfinals where they would face Sheffield United for a place in the semis at Stamford Bridge next month. Chelsea are also in the round of 16 in the Champions League. They are already 1-0 ahead from the away leg against Spanish La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid. The Blues will host the Spaniards in the second leg next month.
