When appointed as the manager of Chelsea, one thing Thomas Tuchel said in his early days at the club was to turn Chelsea to a team that nobody wants to face.
Last season, Chelsea went on to win the Champions League, and the target this season is the Premier League title.
Chelsea are currently top of the table after 12 round of Premier League matches, and Tuchel’s words before the 3-0 thrashing of Leicester City was to turn Chelsea to a team that nobody wants to face.
The Blues boss said: “We have proved over 90 minutes that we can close gaps and that we can beat everybody. This is the feeling that we want to create and constantly have on the pitch, that we are able to beat anybody and we’re the team nobody wants to play against, so we can compete on any level.
“Man City and Liverpool did it over years and years. They challenge each other and push each other to an amount of points which was really impressive over the last years, and we have to prove we are like this. It will not be proven on Saturday or next week or at Christmas. It’s a long way to go and we have to dig in and prove to ourselves that we can overcome obstacles and hard times.
“When things get rough, you have to keep on going. It’s the next step. Don’t stop. Put one step after the other. There will be rain, there will be tough matches out there, there will be opponents who make our life not easy but we have to go through it and stick together, and hopefully in a successful way.”
