Chelsea recorded a beautiful 1-0 away victory against Atletico Madrid, as the Blues defeated Diego Simeone’s side at the National Arena Stadium in Bucharest, Romania on Tuesday night.

Chelsea’s next five games will go a long way to define the season under Thomas Tuchel who is so far unbeaten as Chelsea manager. It’s been bliss for the new boss, but he’d definitely be stretched over the next three weeks, with each game being a different kind of test.

This weekend, Chelsea will play host to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, as the Blues seek to displace one of the clubs fighting for a Champions League place.

After playing United, Chelsea will then visit Anfield to face Liverpool next week Thursday before another home game against another top four contender, Everton on March 8.

On March 13, Chelsea will face Leeds United away from home, as Tuchel must prepare his side for a hardworking Marcel Bielsa side.

Five days after playing Leeds, Chelsea will welcome Atletico Madrid to Stamford Bridge for the second leg of the Champions League tie. A win or at least a draw will be enough to send Chelsea through to the quarterfinal.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is not getting carried away, and has warned his side to be ready for the upcoming games.

He said: “But honestly now we play Man U, Liverpool, Everton and Leeds, and we cannot get too comfortable, we cannot get lazy. These games will push us to our limits and then we will think about solutions for the second game against Atletico.”
