Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool despite playing the second-half with ten men shows the Blues have the three things needed to challenge for the Premier League title.
According to Tuchel, being a reliable team, a strong group and having the spirit to overcome difficulties and obstacles are the ingredients needed to challenge for the Premier League title and Tuchel believes Chelsea have shown they have it all.
“We have a long, long season to play and in the Premier League you can only play if you are a reliable team, if you’re a strong group, if you have the spirit to overcome difficulties and obstacles,” Tuchel said.
“Experiences like this, it says that in the moment we have what it takes. We have the spirit. It says that we have to take care about it and we are in a good way — nothing more.”
Tuchel added: “We are happy with the result, happy with the way we’ve played the three matches.
“We have stuff to improve, but the key factor in the last half a year was the atmosphere, the spirit. That we played like brothers, we could rely on each other,’ Tuchel said.
“That was the case in the first three matches. Today was the proof that we deserved also a bit of luck to overcome some difficult situations.”
