Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel remains unbeaten in his eight games in charge of the club so far, as he has only experienced two draws in as many games.

The German tactician has a knack for winning, and he has admitted that he hates defeats. He even hinted that he could be a bad loser, pointing out that it’s such a mentality that drives managers like him to being winners.

Speaking ahead of facing Manchester United, Tuchel said: “Am I a good loser? So, so. Maybe not so much, but show me a good loser on this level and winning drives us.

“Winning drives this club and winning drives this dressing room, so we are all competitors and we are all out there to win and this is the challenge.

“Everything else in the first moment is hard to accept. Sometimes easier, sometimes worse but I would love to turn it around.

“We love the competition and we love to win and we love a good fight for it and this is what we will hopefully get on Sunday.”

Indeed, Tuchel is right about being a bad loser, as even a draw against Southampton infuriated him, to the point of taking off Callum Hudson-Odoi 30 minutes after bringing him on. His countenance after the game was a fiery one, and surely the players must have felt it in the dressing room.
