“Carlo knows how to keep the momentum going - how to keep the flow going," Tuchel said. “It is good that these games are on and it is good that we have the next big, big match because that drives us, gets us out of bed early.
“It's a pleasure to compete with this team and this group against other strong, strong managers and with their groups and to be in this competition is pure joy. It is everything that you look for as a coach.
“It is proven that Chelsea is an organisation and a club that has everything that you need to be successful as a coach and as a football team, so now it is my job to bring out the very best of myself, together with the team because there is no other way to express myself than with team performances."
