Chelsea boss Tuchel: I'm here to push Tammy to his limits

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits he's trying to push Tammy Abraham "to his limits".

Tuchel spoke further on Tammy Abraham, who was not included in his squad of 18 for the match against Manchester United on Sunday.

He said, "It's my job to push him to his limits. We will not stop doing this and supporting him. It was a tough decision, but we have to make these decisions. It's a part of my job I do not like, but at the same I like it because it means everybody is available.

"We communicate these decisions clearly. We have to cut it down to 18 players. It's not always a punishment or a signal, and that was the case here. It was just a choice from alternatives.

"He lacks a bit of luck Tammy, not only in games but also in training, and once the last touch comes back he will be a player we will push forward."
