With Chelsea still in pursuit for the FA Cup and the Champions League, Tuchel has called on his boys not to take a rest yet.
‘Now come the crucial weeks, nobody can rest on what we have. We have to keep on going,’ the 47-year-old said.
‘Everybody who is on the pitch needs to deserve to be on the pitch. When you’re on the pitch you need to show you play your part, you play your role for 100%, that you’re reliable.

‘I’m very happy for them but on the other hand this is exactly what we need.’
He added: ‘It’s always been like this in my career as a manager: Don’t start thinking too way ahead, don’t put your stakes too high, don’t look at the goals which are in the future to reach.
‘In top level football and top level sports you need to be ready to constantly go forward, to constantly progress. Me as a manager, we as a staff and in the end every player in this club needs to totally commit to this approach of sports at the highest level.
‘This is what we do, this is what I demand of myself and this is what I demand of everybody in the staff and what I feel from everybody in the staff and the team.
‘This is the point, if you want to reach objectives, if you want to climb a mountain, you better start going. Just thinking about the top does not bring you nowhere. You need to walk.
‘Every journey starts with a first step and this is what you need to do. So don’t get confused by thinking too much, don’t get irritated or maybe be too shy that you don’t wish for too much.
‘Take it step by step. Today it was the target to close the gap to Manchester City for 90 minutes completely. It was a huge target and we were very focused on that and delivered very well.
‘So now the next big target is to forget this performance and to forget the success and enter in full awareness to a crucial week in the Premiership.’
