Rudiger

has been outstanding from the first game and the defensive performance was as strong as ever, they deserve the praise for it,

" Tuchel said post-match to BT Sport.

"They do a lot of invisible work, they protect each other at the back and they are brave when they go forward up front when we want to be dangerous from set-pieces.

"Everybody wants him to stay. He's brilliant here and it's pretty clear but sometimes there's a delay in these things. I think we're on the same side. He knows he plays for a fantastic club in a fantastic league.

"He's a wonderful competitor and if he has a bit of patience hopefully we will make it happen."

Tuchel also praised

Kante

, who scored the second goal in his last six Premier League games. This statistic is very brilliant because he had scored two goals in the previous 51 games in the Premier League.

"

N'Golo is outstanding. He finds another gear on the pitch, when he plays with a free mind he can be the difference,"

Tuchel added.

"We want to push over and over again. I am happy with the way we played and the result.

"We played a good away game, excellent result, a good mixture. We created a lot of half-chances, we were a bit unlucky with offsides but I am happy if we create. We need to be strong from first to last minute. It was a deserved win.

"At two goals, anything can happen and the stadium can wake up but we did not allow them into the game and finished them off."
