Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has likened Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United to the 4-0 win over Juventus last week.

According to Tuchel, both games were similar but the difference was that the Chelsea team scored a first half goal against Juve.

Tuchel however believes that the Blues supporters felt the energy of the team against Manchester United.

He said after the game: “When you play a game like against Juventus, if you maybe don’t score the first goal from a set-piece or if Thiago doesn’t save the Morata chance on the line, it’s always possible you play the exact same game and you play a draw.

“This can happen. We don’t want it to happen and we try hard to get the reward for performances like this, but I’m absolutely happy with what the players put in.

“We created chances, we created deliveries, we had a huge amount of shots. Can we take them better? Yes. We had so many high ball recoveries, can we maybe create a bit more chances and superiority out of them? Yes, maybe.

“But we put in an effort and I think the spectators feel that so the energy is right, the quality is right, the result is the result. It is today not in our favour. It should be, but we have to accept it.”
