Thomas Tuchel named three Chelsea stars no one would want to pick fights with as the side set to take on FC Porto on Tuesday
Chelsea take on FC Porto tomorrow night as they hope to advance into the next stage of the UEFA Champions League with their first leg’s 2-0 victory handing them a major boost.
On the first tie, both Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell played heroes to hand the West Londoners a deserved victory.
It’s someway maybe considered a response as Tuchel alarms of three Chelsea stars no one would want to pick a fight with.
Speaking ahead of the game, Tuchel said; ‘Honestly you don’t want to be in a fight with Antonio Rudiger, Kova (Mateo Kovacic) and Azpi (Cesar Azpilicueta).

‘For me you don’t want to be in a fight with them, because they are ready to fight and it’s their nature to show it on the pitch and protect the interests of our team.
‘They are there we can rely on them nobody has to do stuff which is against their nature you can totally rely on them.
‘For me when I was a player at a lower level when you have big matches and feel the tension you look around at who is next to you and feel comfortable, see who you can rely on.
‘I feel our guys are very comfortable when they look around and see who they can rely on. No one is out there alone, we will help each other, we will help from the bench.
‘We will push hard for the best outcome. We have minimum of 90 minutes to fight for and achieve a big goal.’
Tuchel is still on his first spell as Chelsea manager after replacing Frank Lampard halfway at the UEFA Champions League and the side is still in the FA Cup.
Winning a trophy this season will be major boost to Chelsea managerial career and he believes this could be achieved.
‘I am here to win games and as a result to win titles,’ he added.
‘This is what I demand of myself. Why should we now say any different – that we want to win in five years, three years or two years? Now is the time.’
