are set to face

Manchester City

tomorrow in a Premier League clash. The Blues are standing second in the League table, 10 points adrift of the Citizens and a victory in tomorrow’s match is absolutely necessary if the Londoners want to maintain their hopes for winning the title.

Reflecting on tomorrow’s clash, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said:

"They are the benchmark, they are the best team in England right now. This is something we have to admit realistically.

"We don't think a lot in the scenarios of 'what happens if?'. Let's play the game. I'm always in for a good fight, but I'm also very realistic. We are always up for a good fight with Man City and always there to push them to the limit and ask them questions they maybe don't like to answer.

"But they're very strong, very consistent, and perform on the absolute highest level.

"They opened the gap not over the last month, but they opened the gap over the last years. We will come up with a plan and push and help and support in the best way with genuine belief, but a team is a different team if everybody is available."

He added:

"We have a good squad with a fantastic mentality.

"We need a bit more of a fight to bring out the extra edges.

"It's not enough to find even 100 per cent; we need to over-perform to catch City to be on top of the Premier League. To over-perform, you need simply everybody."
