Danny Murphy has backed Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side to have a ‘good go’ at the Premier League title next season.

Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard at the end of January and guided the Blues to a top-four finish, as well as FA Cup and Champions League finals.

Though the west Londoners lost to Leicester City in the FA Cup final earlier this month, they beat Manchester City on Saturday night to claim the Champions League for a second time.

Tuchel has revealed that Chelsea will target two or three signings in the summer transfer window to bolster his squad.

And former Liverpool midfielder Murphy feels the Blues will challenge for the title next season.

‘I think it’s positive times for Chelsea,’ Murphy told talkSPORT.

‘It looks harmonious, most of the players look happy. You’ll always have a few players, even at a great club, who are looking for an exit because they can tell they’re not part of it.

‘When you’ve a wonderful squad like Chelsea there’s always going to be a turnaround of a few players.

‘He’ll bring one or two in of his own. I expect them to have a good go at the title next season.’

‘I think it [Chelsea’s playing style] will evolve, depending on who the opposition is,’ Murphy added. ‘I don’t think he’s a one-trick pony where he’s just going to play that way. 

‘You’re not going to watch Chelsea next season and see them play the same way they did against City every week, that’s naive. I think they’ll evolve to what they need to do.’
