Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has hailed Chelsea’s squad depth following Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City.
Tuchel was able to make five changes to the side that had knocked Real Madrid out of the Champions League and beat Manchester City.
“There is no other possibility than having a strong squad and it is all about the players,” the head coach said.
“The players have to step up and this is what they do. If there is a possibility to play they need to show that they are ready to play and this is what they sign up for if they sign for Chelsea.
“We have high ambitions and the club has high ambitions and the players want to have the biggest success possible, so you really have to work for it and this is what they are doing. It is very pleasing as a coach.
“You need the momentum, you need a little bit of luck, and the group right now and the players as individuals, they do everything to force this luck on our side.
“Now that we catch this momentum and work so hard for it, there is the next challenge all the time to keep on going because the job is not done yet in any competition.”
