After a goalless draw at home to Wolves in his first match in charge, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has guided Chelsea to two consecutive victories over Burnley and then London rivals Tottenham away.

Jorginho scored from the spot in the first half as the Blues dominated our London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack has backed Tuchel to ‘shape an era’ at following his strong start to life in West London.

Ballack is confident that Tuchel will leave his mark at Chelsea if he is given ‘breathing space’ after replacing club legend Frank Lampard as manager.

Ballack told Stats Perform News: “Thomas Tuchel has clear ideas about what he wants and how he wants to play. He showed at Paris Saint-Germain that he can handle difficult characters.

“If he wins games, he can get some breathing space and maybe be the coach who will leave his mark there in the long term in order to shape an era at Chelsea.”
