Chelsea evening headlines as Ancelotti makes Tuchel claim and why Klopp was riled in Blues loss
Here are your Chelsea evening headlines for Friday, March 5.The Thomas Tuchel effect
Carlo Ancelotti, who managed Chelsea between 2009 and 2011, has spoken about what is different between the Blues side under Thomas Tuchel compared to Frank Lampard.
The former Blues manager said ahead of the Chelsea vs Everton match on Monday: “It's really difficult to say.
"Offensively they play a little bit different, not too much because the players are still the same. They are really consistent because they haven't lost games under Tuchel.
"They are solid, but this doesn't mean Lampard didn't do a good job. In my opinion, Lampard did a fantastic job when he was there.
"He [Tuchel] has the quality. He's a young manager but he's already had experience in Germany, experience in Paris and so he's a manager with a lot of knowledge and of course a lot of ambition. Because he's young.
"He's not old, like me! I have strong ambition, even if I am a little bit old!"

Ben Chilwell did a good job of marshalling the Premier League's top scorer Mohamed Salah in Chelsea's 1-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield last night.
The left-back was tasked with keeping the 17-goal forward quiet and he did just that as Thomas Tuchel's side inflicted a fifth consecutive defeat at home on the Reds for the first time in their history.
With Jurgen Klopp's side a goal down, thanks to Mason Mount's first-half strike, the Liverpool manager decided to withdraw the Egyptian in the 62nd minute and sent on midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on in his place.
According to Sky Sports, this was the earliest the 28-year-old had been substituted in a Premier League game since September 2017 and he was not at all happy about it, shaking his head as he walked off the pitch.
Klopp said the change was because Salah "looked like he felt the intensity and I didn’t want to risk him."
However, journalist Matt Critchley said otherwise.

There have been high-profile victories along the way. Chelsea overcame Tottenham Hotspur, managed by former Blues boss Mourinho, at the start of February and have since defeated Simeone's Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and recorded a 1-0 win against Klopp's Liverpool last night to move back into the Premier League top four.
After the win at Anfield, the Blues' first at the stadium since 2014, Tuchel was asked if Chelsea's results under his stewardship were proof the club had made the right decision to bring him in to succeed club legend Lampard.
The 47-year-old replied: "I am flattered but I will give the flowers to the players and to the club. It is proven that Chelsea is an organisation and a club that has everything that you need to be successful as a coach and as a football team.
"It's my job to bring out the very best of myself together with the team; there is no other way to express myself than with team performances.
