​Chelsea manager Tuchel delighted with Bournemouth victory

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has expressed his delight at his side's impressive win over Bournemouth in pre-season.

The Blues emerged with a 2-1 win after going behind, thanks to goals from Armando Broja and Ike Ugbo off the bench.

As the Champions League winners prepare for the new Premier League season and the European Super Cup, Tuchel was very happy with what he saw from his players against the Cherries.

"I'm always happy when we win, because we play to win," assessed Tuchel after the game, per the club's website.

"It was a tough test. Bournemouth started very bravely, and very direct and very aggressive. We needed some time to adapt to feel a bit more comfortable. Then we controlled the first half and had some big chances.

"The second half we did a lot of changes, interrupted our own rhythm, had some crucial ball losses to give away two big chances, but in the end it's nice because we came back and showed a good mentality."
