Premier League Gist

Forget Atletico Win – Chelsea boss Tuchel issues warning to his side ahead of crucial Man United premier league clash



Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel issues warning to ahead of Manchester United game

Thomas Tuchel has urged caution from his Chelsea side ahead of the game against Manchester United (via BT Sport h/t Mirror).

Spirits were naturally high after a solid display against Atletico Madrid where they picked up a win with a crucial away goal, heading into the second leg.

Nonetheless, the Blues will have a rather difficult run in the Premier League starting on Sunday with four very capable teams. Manchester United are their first opponents followed by the likes of Liverpool, Everton and Leeds United.

Tuchel warned his players to not get ‘comfortable or lazy’ given they have top-four ambitions this season.

“Honestly, we now play Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton and Leeds but this is good. We cannot get comfortable or get lazy.”

He did, however, sound particularly delighted with the win over Atletico Madrid.

“Fantastic result, fantastic goal. Well deserved. We wanted to dominate in the opponents’ half, to never lose concentration, not to do any easy mistakes and always be aware of quick counter-attacks for all their quality.”

“It was a very disciplined performance – a deserved shut-out. This is the hard work, a team effort – the basis for a big win. We knew it [Atletico packing their defence] could happen. We told the guys if it happens maybe it’s our quality and the respect. We wanted to be brave and play in their half.”

With a slight advantage now secured going into the second leg, Thomas Tuchel will need to concentrate on the league in the meantime. Manchester United are second in the table and by no means will be an easy fixture. The Liverpool and Everton games are a must-win as both these sides are looking to get into the top-four.
