Chelsea had been top of the Premier League table for many weeks now, but the Blues have now relinquished their spot at the top after a 3-2 defeat to West Ham.

Following the game against the Hammers, Chelsea lost grip at the top and could end match week 15 in 3rd place.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has said that he’s not thinking of the title currently, as he wants his side to up their game and maintain focus.

“The [title] race is not interesting at the moment,” Tuchel said, “What is interesting is the next 90 minutes and having the focus right and the attitude right and taking care about the details.

“We are not good enough on the details in the moment. We do too many big mistakes and we need to care about the details. There is no need to ask big questions or start doubting the big picture. If you play at West Ham it is about details and without doing big mistakes, there is a big chance that we win in this game.”
