“We hoped for the very best performance and Edu will be in from now on because he is the number one.”
In addition to Blues’ victory over Magpies, Tuchel said; “It was a very good night, the perfect evening.
“We knew we had he opportunity to jump into the top four. We took this chance, the guys get a well deserved two days off now.
“Second half was not our best, we struggled with decision making, confidence and technical mistakes. But we always accept the fight.
“I got the impression we don’t wan to lose what we built in the first half, I prefer us to think about what we can create.”
Chelsea will continue their EPL top spot fight as Man United have surprisingly dropped points with a second place finish looking more likely for the German manager.
