Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel set another record on Sunday after Chelsea’s goalless draw against Manchester United.

Tuchel has become just the second coach not to concede a single goal in his four home matches in the Premier League after Brendan Rodgers in 2011-12 with Swansea City. Including his final two such matches in charge of PSG, Tuchel has gone six matches without conceding at home in league competition.

Meanwhile, Tuchel believes Chelsea had the better chances against Manchester United.

Tuchel said: “We had the better chances and played high up the pitch in the second half.

“We have to accept a draw in the end and a clean sheet. We had a very good reaction after half time. We stepped up and got better and better with higher recoveries. We went for a win but it did not happen.

“In this highest level, at some points, maybe two big chances have to be enough. If you don’t do that then we have to be alert and aware of the counter-attacks and quality from Manchester United.

“We did this and defended very well. This was extraordinary effort and quality. We take it and go on.”
