THOMAS TUCHEL is set to become Chelsea's new manager after Frank Lampard was sacked on Monday.

And bookmakers Betfair are offering a variety of specials on how the former Paris Saint-Germain boss will fare during his first season at Stamford Bridge.


Clearly Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is expecting an upturn in fortunes with the club anchored in ninth – 11 points behind leaders Manchester United.

And though a challenge for the 2020-21 title is seemingly out of reach – a top four finish is essential.

United, Manchester City, Leicester and Liverpool currently occupy the Champions League positions.

And Betfair have priced Tuchel at 23/10 to displace at least one of the big-hitters to guarantee a place in UEFA's top competition.

The 47-year-old was no stranger to silverware during his two-and-a-half-years at PSG.

Thomas Tuchel specials – Betfair

  • Chelsea top 4 finish – 23/10
  • To win 2020-21 FA Cup – 11/2
  • To win the 2020-21 Champions League – 18/1
  • To win a trophy during the 2020-21 season – 4/1

In all, Tuchel won six trophies at the Parc des Princes, including two Ligue 1 titles, the Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and two Trophees des Champions.

He's available at 4/1 with Betfair to get his hands on a trophy this season.

The FA Cup represents Chelsea's best chance of silverware this season at 11/2.

The Blues reached the fifth round in what turned out to be Lampard's final game as they beat Championship Luton 3-1 thanks to a hat-trick from Tammy Abraham.

A win over second-tier Barnsley will see Tuchel and Co. into the last eight of the competition – two wins away from a Wembley final.

Tuchel took PSG to the Champions League final last season and he's priced at 18/1 to go one better with Chelsea.

But navigating Atletico Madrid, who knocked Liverpool out of last year's tournament, in the round of 16 could be a stiff task.
