Chelsea boss Tuchel: I'm super happy with our market

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says he's happy with the club's market work.

Tuchel has been delighted with the squad additions, three of whom debuted last weekend away at Everton, and believes chairman Todd Boehly has been pushing hard to support him with recruitment throughout the window.

The transfer deadline is still a few weeks away and Tuchel is also hopeful of more reinforcements before then.

"I gave him [Boehly] a list to make it possible for us to fight straight away for the title but it was a pretty unrealistic list!" Tuchel joked. "We don't play fantasy football - we need to pay for it and convince players and other clubs to give us their best players, which is simply not happening.

"I'm super happy with what we did so far – Raheem Sterling, Kalidou, Carney and Marc Cucurella, all fantastic signings and I'm more than happy that they're with us.

"If we are finished then we fight with this squad but if not, we try to add further quality and of course with that, the ambition level rises."
