Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel praised Andreas Christensen for his performance in Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Christensen, 25, played the full 90 minutes alongside Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva as the Blues kept our fourth clean sheet in the Premier League this season.

Tuchel said: “Andreas has been very strong since day, can play in all three positions in the defence and he plays with a lot of confidence.

“In the beginning, I had the feeling it was a bit of push to believe in himself and impose himself and trust in his quality because he has everything that we need in these positions.

“Again a very strong performance. You can see it in the minutes.”

“We rely fully on him and he’s doing very very good so far and it is everybody’s target that he continues like this.”
