Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was impressed with Chelsea’s second half performance against Manchester United on Sunday.

According to the German tactician, the Blues had the better chances and handled Manchester United’s counter-attacks brilliantly.

Tuchel told BBC Sport: “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.”
