Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has warned his players after the 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid at the National Arena Stadium in Bucharest, Romania on Tuesday night.

Chelsea did well to get a good result against Diego Simeone’s side, but now face some difficult tests ahead, in the Premier League.

Starting with Manchester United this weekend, Chelsea have crucial upcoming games against Liverpool, Everton and Leeds United as well.

Although Tuchel was pleased with the performance, he has urged his players not to get lazy.

The Blues boss said: “Again a big effort with a high intensity. Playing like this he has a big impact on our team.

“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.”
