Chelsea have finally perfected Thomas Tuchel's trademark 'Tuchel-ball' and footage from their 3-0 win over Aston Villa proves it.

The Blues were dominant on Saturday evening and are unbeaten in their first four Premier League games.

Many have tipped them to challenge for the title and it seems the players are now fully used to Tuchel's demanding style of play.

It was evident in the build-up to their third goal, which saw Jorginho intercept a John McGinn pass.

Rather than rush forward, Jorginho played it back to Cesar Azpilicueta who worked it back to goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea then chose to build from the back, stretching Aston Villa who were chasing the game in added time.

Hakim Ziyech eventually receives the ball and plays Azpilicueta in down the right, before he puts in a cross for Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium international curled home his second of the game after Timo Werner dragged away Ezri Konsa with a lovely run.

It's a simple move on the face of it. But it's the kind of play Chelsea weren't able to master last campaign.

Safe to say fans on social media are impressed.

Villa lined up with a back five to counter Chelsea and it's something Tuchel claims caused his side problems.

"It was absolutely not [a comfortable evening]," Tuchel told Sky Sports per Birmingham Live. "It was a strong Aston Villa side. They were well prepared, they looked very sharp from the start and very confident.

"They caused us a lot of problems, particularly in the first half. They're dangerous from throw-ins, set-pieces and corners, and gave us many situations you have to defend.

"That's not our favourite discipline, but we did what we had to do.

"The second half was better, we had more control. There were a lot of half chances that we didn't take very well.

"We played with some of the guys in a new formation. We were not at our highest level. We had some early ball losses because they played very aggressive in the last line. If we had better first touches and better movement, perhaps we could have had more chances. But credit to them, they played a very good match."
