Kurt Zouma always looked like a promising defender and he had the pace and power to be a top class player, but he had issues with being clumsy or being caught out of position so he struggled to get into the Chelsea team for a while.

He’s started to thrive over the past couple of years and he’s another who’s made improvements under Tuchel, and this late tackle in the game today is a prime example.
