Following Chelsea’s 2-1 comeback win over Manchester City on Saturday, Thomas Tuchel told the club media: “At half-time, we said let’s continue like it is 0-0 and not lose our heads because of the last three minutes.
“From there we could go and step up and try and play with courage, have more possession and more possession in their half. This is what the guys did.
“The momentum changed completely with the goal. I could feel everybody were growing in confidence. We played with more and more quality and pressure. We never stopped attacking.”
Tuchel continued: “It’s a huge win, a big reaction and a fantastic team performance in the second half in the context we had one less day to recover, it was away, and we had a big win against Real Madrid.
“That had a huge impact mentally so that was a fantastic reaction from the boys.”
At the moment, the Blues are on a roll and gave the ultimate response to City – now some of their fans are too confident about winning the Champions League already.
