came on and scored his first goal of the season in the Premier League and gained three points for Chelsea. Last night, only 71% of Chelsea's passes were correct, which is their weakest performance under Tuchel. Now the German coach also claimed that his team has stolen 3 points from the opponent.

"We stole three points. We don’t have to talk around it. It feels very, very good, it's an important three points of course. For the first time it feels like a lucky win,"

Tuchel said.

"That's not us. We were absolutely not ready today for this match. I missed maybe to find the right approach to make my team ready. 

"We had the break due to very sad circumstances – hopefully the person is better and hopefully it was enough time to keep them safe. Even this break after the first 11 minutes did not change our approach. We did not cope with the pressure, with the first ball, second ball. 

“We had a lot of changes, I admit that, but too many faults. It did not get better. The only thing we could do was hang in there and focus on the easy things. It was a lucky win. 

"I see this totally as an exception from the rule. I will not insist too long on this match because it’s so unusual for us to play like this."
