Thomas Tuchel had nothing but praise for his players following the 2-0 win against Everton on Monday.

The game against the Toffess was one against a direct top four rival, and the win extended our lead over them to four points, bearing in mind that Carlo Ancelotti’s side has a game in hand.

Tuchel sang the praises of his players, and hailed the second-half performance as an excellent one.

“We deserved to win,” said the Blues boss.

“It was a very difficult first half and we struggled at points to find the right moments for acceleration in the offensive third but we controlled the game completely.

“In the second half, we increased our level and we passed the ball better to escape the pressure. We created many chances and could have scored more goals.

“I thought the first half was a good performance but the second half was excellent.”
