Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has a sense of confidence in his squad ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.

Despite the 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday, Tuchel has admitted that he has been impressed with the team’s hunger and desire on the training ground ahead of the game.

Tuchel told the media ahead of facing Atletico: “I think we are well equipped [to compete in the Champions League], I love what I see on a daily basis at Cobham. I love what I feel, I love what I see with the intensity, the quality and the hunger in training.

“Here at Chelsea, I feel a strong club. I have a strong bond with the players and I have complete trust in this group and the quality of each individual. When you get to this stage, you have to perform to your absolute maximum.”

Chelsea still remain unbeaten under Tuchel, and the German gaffer will be hoping to come out tops after the game at Bucharest on Tuesday night.
