'We'll put Real in our pocket' - Chelsea fans call for 3-man link-up after booking FA Cup semi-final spot


Supporters of Premier League giants Chelsea have taken to social media in numbers on Saturday evening, to call on boss Thomas Tuchel to make use of a specific three-player connection down the club's right flank over the weeks ahead.

The Blues, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

Amid the ongoing drama when it comes to the ownership situation in west London, Tuchel's troops made the journey to the Riverside Stadium, eyeing a spot in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at the expense of Middlesbrough.

And, when all was said and done in north Yorkshire, march on to the final four is precisely what Chelsea managed.

A controlled display ultimately culminated in the visitors emerging on the right side of a 2-0 scoreline, owing to first-half strikes on the part of both Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech:

'Taking over world football'

And, as alluded to above, on the back of the full-time whistle sounding on a positive evening for all associated with the club, many of a Chelsea persuasion, in turn, have since been keen to single out one particular area of the club's triumphant XI for special praise.

The spot in question? The right flank.

Saturday's action at the Riverside saw the visitors run riot down 'Boro's left, courtesy of equally frequent and brilliant link-up between Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount.

Calls have therefore begun to mount for Thomas Tuchel to continue making full use of such a pairing over the weeks ahead, before adding Reece James into the mix upon his return from injury:
