Chelsea boss Tuchel admits he knows plenty about Man Utd

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says he knows plenty about Sunday's opponents Manchester United.

Tuchel has already met Man United twice this season with PSG in the Champions League group stage.

He said, "It helps if you know the style, the strengths and weaknesses. We have a pretty good impression of the style they play and the spaces they want to hurt us, and their strengths individually and as a group. That helps to prepare.

"They like to have space, they like to counter-attack, they like to use their speed and absorb our speed. They are strong team that can defend very compact, very good in transition whoever plays, and it will be a big challenge to defend all this.

"We will underline our opinion and knowledge with pictures from the last four weeks, like always, and then we will prepare our team to hopefully win this match. We will totally focus on us, what we have to do to win this difficult match.

"There is a lot to do but we are on a good run, and it will be a big challenge to be the first ones to beat them in a Premier League away game."
