What a win for Chelsea this evening in the Champions League and how good was that Chelsea performance on the other hand though how poor were Athletic Madrid this evening? Thomas Tuchel has done an excellent job since coming in as Chelsea manger, but it’s next season when he will really be judged there’s always a bounce when a new manager comes in. All the same massive credit has to go to the German, here he is talking to BT Sport post match.
"A fantastic result, a fantastic goal like you said. And well deserved."
"We deserved the shut out. This is the basis for a big away win."
"But it's only half-time. We know that very well."
A delighted Thomas Tuchel on an away goal #UCL victory! 👊
