The Blues are unbeaten in eight league games with Tuchel at the helm as the German has hauled them back into the top four after taking over with them sitting in ninth.
One of two players Tuchel will be sweating over is Thiago Silva, with the Brazilian nearing a recovery from a thigh issue after returning to team training during the week.
Having not played in over a month, Silva is more likely to start this game from the bench with Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger set to continue having kept three clean sheets in a row together in all competitions.
Marcos Alonso has seen his minutes increase under Tuchel and could return to the starting XI in place of Ben Chilwell, with Reece James continuing to the right of the back three.
Another player that has had a mini revival under the German is Jorginho, and the Italian should partner Mateo Kovacic in the centre of midfield to continue his impressive form.
Up front is where the Blues have options, though Tammy Abraham may not be one of those options as he sets about a return from an ankle injury.
Olivier Giroud could come back in at centre-forward, with two goals to the Frenchman’s name under the new manager so far.
Mason Mount was the match-winner at Anfield against Liverpool last week and has been arguably Chelsea’s best player all season – his is just about the first name on the team sheet at present.
Alongside those two could be any number of players, but Timo Werner seems to have Tuchel’s faith and played well against Liverpool without reward, and could merit a spot in this clash.
A win for the Blues will go a long way to qualifying for the Champions League again next season, with the possibility to open up a four point gap between themselves and Everton in fifth.
