After the Liverpool draw, Thomas Tuchel was asked about Andreas Christensen’s impact on the team.
“Andreas has been very strong for us from day one,” the boss replied, as quoted by the official Chelsea website.
“He started in the central position and finished the game in the right position because we decided to bring on Thiago and stay with the back five.”
“Andreas is very strong, he’s super talented. He loves Chelsea, he’s a Chelsea boy from the Academy, this has a huge impact in the moment. I think he feels the trust, he knows what to do, he can absolutely help, he’s a top defender and a top guy.
“I have the feeling he’s growing every week in confidence and personality, which is good and he’s doing fantastic since day one and getting better and better.”
The Dane is reportedly set for a new long-term deal with Chelsea as his current contract expires in less than 12 months.
