Thomas Tuchel credits Chelsea players for Tottenham triumph

Thomas Tuchel credited his Chelsea players for the victory over Tottenham.

The Blues boss continued his unbeaten start at his new club with a 1-0 win over Spurs and credited his squad rather than his tactics for the result.

Tuchel said: "It's not about my methods. I'm happy with the attitude, the squad, the potential.

They are fine guys, it's a nice group and they are open. It's a pleasure to be around them. We have a lot of support in the whole club. It was a quick start but an easy one because I feel very welcome.

"We defended very actively and brave."

Tuchel praised his side for their "power and intensity" as they dominated the game to close in on a Champions League spot.

He told BT Sport: "It is not only about tactics, it's about how we play and live it.

"They lived it 100 percent with full power and intensity. We never lost the belief, faith or courage to push high and for that you have to be brave and we were."

Tuchel admits that he is keen for his side to create more chances to make games more comfortable.

He said: "We need to create more clear chances, this is the objective and this is the job for me.

"I blame nobody because I never scored in my career, it is one of the hardest things in football. We have trust in our players so we will work on creating more clear chances and to be more effective."
