“I will never write anyone off, not in this league and not in this game, because it is a big club, first of all, but it is a very experienced and individually top-level group of players,” Tuchel said to chelseafc.com.
“So this is still the case and part of the performance from us is to not let them perform, because once we let them perform you can see within seconds and within minutes in every game the full potential and the talent of these players, which is on the highest level.
“On the other side, it is always the best moment to play against Manchester United because we are up for the big challenges and we want to be out there to play on the highest level, to prove ourselves and to prove a point.”
“We just came from a tough match and there’s the next one, this is where we are, where we love to be, and we get challenged on the highest level again on Sunday.”
Man United have lost 4 of their last 5 games and will likely be dealing with the arrival of interim boss Ralf Rangnick in the background.
Chelsea will need to ensure there is no complacency though, as the Red Devils do have the quality of players to hurt them.
