Tuchel pleased with Chelsea display despite stalemate

Thomas Tuchel told Chelsea’s players they should not feel disappointed after their goalless draw at home to Wolves in his first match in charge.

The new Blues boss quickly stamped his authority on the squad, leaving out Mason Mount and deploying Callum Hudson-Odoi as a wing-back.

Chelsea had plenty of possession but struggled to create clear-cut chances.

However, Tuchel revealed: “I walked into the dressing room and told everybody there is no room for disappointment now – there is no room for doubts.

“The opposite; I was very happy with the performance. It was hard work but we never lost intensity.”

Tuchel was installed this week after Frank Lampard was sacked after a run of five defeats in eight league matches.

But the new man at the helm did not see much wrong with the team.

He said: “I don’t see too many weaknesses. I will focus on our strengths. I will focus on the amazing mix of experienced players and young and hungry talent.”
