Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel could reportedly have another issue in the dressing room just a few weeks after seemingly resolving his differences with Romelu Lukaku.
The German manager started the year on a difficult note, with the Blues' squad said to have been divided as some stars were keen to see Lukaku face formal punishment for his controversial interview, while others did not feel that action was necessary.
Ultimately, Tuchel and his star striker reportedly reached a form of consensus, but it appears the tactician may have more fires to put out in the club's front line.

According to The Athletic, a number of Chelsea forwards are upset with the way the head coach uses and treats them, with his criticism from the touchline during matches and in training being described as "brutal", and this has led to them suffering from a lack of confidence and developing a fear of taking risks.
While injuries and Covid-19 have not helped, the rotation of players and their positions have reportedly also added to the low morale among the attackers, who are finding it increasingly difficult to build any consistency, with some even considering leaving the club in the near future as a result.
This apparent unrest in the camp may help explain the London club's recent slump in form, with Chelsea having recorded only three wins in their past 10 Premier League matches.
