Thomas Tuchel has done a superb job at Chelsea so far. He took over a team that was drifting, gave them new purpose and life, and has them right back where they belong at the top.
The only criticism has been that his impressive defensive structure is a little too rigid, and goals are starting to dry up. It certainly looked a lot like we played for a draw against Manchester United on Sunday.
That was implicit in the question about whether the Blues were going to try and win against Liverpool tomorrow, and the Blues boss backed himself and his team, and looked a little irked by the suggestion that they would ever be happy with a draw.
You can see the manager speaking in the clip:
🗣 "We are confident enough to go there and prepare ourselves to win."
