Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has acknowledged that his side produced an “amazing” performance to defeat Juventus 4-0 in the Champions League.
Trailing by three points in the group, the Blues thrashed their rivals as Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner all got on the scoresheet.
Speaking after the game, Tuchel was quick to praise his side, complimenting how his players adopted a different mindset to the one which contributed to their 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture.
The German told BT Sport: “We wanted to stay patient but at the same time not fall asleep. We wanted to increase the rhythm and intensity. It’s so tough to create and score but we created so much. An amazing performance and a fantastic result.
“We were sharper than in Turin, we took more risks, something we lacked in Turin. By control you cannot hurt them – you need to penetrate with runs off the ball. We were very good and scored nice goals.
“I feel very aware that we do the invisible work and when we have to defend we really defend and dig in.”
The European champions will seal top spot in the group if they defeat Zenit St Petersburg in Russia in two weeks’ time.
