Thomas Tuchel has been pictured at Chelsea for the first time as he has taken training for the Wolves game.

The German, who took over from Frank Lampard on Tuesday on an 18-month deal, took the session half an hour after his arrival at Cobham.

It comes with just over 24 hours to go until his first game which comes against Nuno Espirito Santo's side.

And there is no time to lose, with the Stamford Bridge side sitting 11 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United.

The 47-year-old arrives in London 28 days after being sacked by French champions PSG, with his current side on a league run of just two wins from their last eight games.

And he will be required to inspire Chelsea to a Champions League spot this season while continuing to develop young talent.

Tuchel said in a statement upon his arrival: "I would like to thank Chelsea FC for their confidence in me and my staff.

"We all have the greatest respect for Frank Lampard’s work and the legacy he created at Chelsea.

"At the same time, I cannot wait to meet my new team and compete in the most exciting league in football.

"I am grateful to now be part of the Chelsea family – it feels amazing."

Tuchel has enjoyed success in his managerial stints with Borussia Dortmund and PSG, winning seven major titles with Les Parisiens.

And he guided the French side to the Champions League final last season, losing to Bayern Munich.

His first training session with the Blues has seen the German reunite with some of his former players, including Thiago Silva.

The defender had been at the Parc des Princes for six years before Tuchel's arrival, leading his side before moving to Chelsea for free over the summer.

While the German boss also gave forward Christian Pulisic his chance at Dortmund before the American's 2019 transfer.

But Silva had a warning about Tuchel for the club before his arrival on Tuesday.
