Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has promised Chelsea fans that the Blues will challenge for the title next season.
Tuchel admits that it will be impossible for Chelsea to catch Manchester City this season but is convinced the Blues will be in the title mix next season.
Speaking before Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool, Tuchel said: “Will we close the gap to Man City this season? No, we will not. It’s impossible.
“But from next season on, we start with zero points all of us and City were in trouble this season and nobody took advantage of it.
“If it’s somewhere proven, it’s proven in sports that you can do extraordinary steps, that you improve staff and grow with a certain momentum if you catch the momentum.
“There are some ifs, but we absolutely want to make it possible. It’s a small line between the arguments that exist and admitting reality, and maybe admitting it’s a long way to go, and still not allowing it to become an excuse.
“This is what we are up for and now we are challenging for top four, which was a big, big task when we first stepped in, and from next year we will challenge for all titles, all competitions, sure.”
