He said: "I think this game (against Brentford) and now these coming games and the schedule, which is very busy over the next few weeks, shows how important it is to have a competitive squad and everybody on board. With a lot of games coming up, you might have some injuries or suspensions, and you need players to be ready.

"That’s why it’s great to have a competitive squad. Of course it is harder for the players, because there is more competition and sometimes you have to start on the bench, so the issue is that you always have to disappoint someone every game. Unfortunately that’s the way it works in a top club in football."

The former goalkeeper has played his part in forming Chelsea's squad, convincing key players such as Kai Havertz to move to Stamford Bridge and he will soon be working closely with Tuchel in the January transfer window to add to the squad.
