What Tuchel Said After EPL Results Over The weekend.

Premier League results elsewhere over the weekend has helped the Blues to extend their lead at the top of the League table to three points, with Liverpool FC having been held to a 2-2 draw by Brighton at home, and Manchester City suffering a shock 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace at The Etihad.

However, Blues boss Tuchel is not distracted by the results insisting that he paid no attention to the other results and was purely focused on his own side.

When asked about the points dropped by Liverpool FC and Manchester City, Tuchel replied: “It will never be the moment when we celebrate results on the other pitches.

“It’s first of all far too early and second, we want to focus on ourselves. If you think that we are even happier now [because of the other results], absolutely this is not true.

“I’m absolutely happy today with the performance off the ball. The effort and discipline that we put into the moments off the ball, that was the key to the win.”

Reece James scored twice in the second half and Jorginho netted a late penalty to claim an important victory for the Blues against the Magpies.

James has been in excellent form this season and the 21-year-old has now scored four goals and made two assists in seven Premier League games for the Blues.

“Reece is allowed to come inside, it’s not a problem,” said Tuchel. “It’s about all the spaces where we want to attack from.

“We have players in all the spaces where we want to be dangerous so if there is a winger pinned wide or waiting wide, Reece is absolutely allowed to take the space. We need the wing-backs to arrive also in the box in the end of our attacks.”

Chelsea returns to Champions League action on Tuesday night when they travel to take on Malmo in the group stage.
