Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel heaved a sigh of relief after Chelsea sealed a top four finish on the final day of the season.

The Blues had things in their hands but surprisingly couldn’t beat Aston Villa, and had to depend on Tottenham to beat Leicester City.

Chelsea lost to Villa 2-1, but finished the season in 4th following Leicester City’s 4-2 defeat to Tottenham.

Speaking after the game, Tuchel admitted his side were lucky, but maintained that they deserve to finish in the top four.

“We have no regrets,” said Tuchel.

“We are lucky Tottenham finished the job for us today. We came to win and put any doubt to the side, but it was not possible.

“We are in the position and we were in the position that it was possible to end in the top four with a defeat. That was possible because of the team’s hard work and good results.”
