Tuchel confident things would turn out good

2 min read

Thomas Tuchel was very encouraged by Chelsea’s performance in their 0-0 draw against Wolves at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea were held to a goalless draw against Wolves in Tuchel’s first game in charge. The Blues finished the 90 minutes with 79% possession, but they struggled to break down a resilient Wolves side.

This result leaves the London outfit eighth in the top flight and they are five points behind West Ham in fourth.

Speaking with BT Sport post-match, as cited by BBC Sport, Tuchel insisted that he was “very happy” with his side’s performance:

“I enjoyed it a lot because I was very happy with the intensity, the attitude, energy and quality of my team, we were well organised, had a lot of ball recoveries in the last third, never lacked intensity.

“We stepped up minute after minute in the second half. I was very happy performance wise, unfortunately we couldn’t score. If we take care of our performance like this the results will come.

“It reminded me a bit of our games in Dortmund. We had a very good training session yesterday. 21 guys who were totally awake, to try to do what we are doing. Tactically, structure, where to accelerate the game, how to defend – I didn’t expect it to be on this level from one training and two meetings. It gives me a good feeling for the future.

“It was today totally unfair because I had no explanation for anybody on the side why they didn’t play. Every day will help.”

On Callum Hudson-Odoi: “Dribbling, runs, one on ones, intensity – defensively he had to help in a back five. We didn’t want to suffer too much in their ball in possession. Callum was the key on the side with his speed and confidence.”
