The German tactician (Tunchel) spoke to the media shortly after the game and also congratulated his team for a very important victory over Diego Simieone’s side.

In his words he (Tunchel) has this to say, I’m super happy for the players and for my team that we have such a big reward for a top performance, ‘It was very important that we were absolutely concentrated for all 96 minutes, that we accepted also that it is very hard to create chances, but we did all that.

Mount and also Jorginho, we will be missing two crucial players in the next leg, that makes it not easy for us. I am very happy with the performance of everybody, that includes Mason. Again a big effort with a high intensity. Playing like this he has a big impact on our team.’

But honestly now we play Man U, Liverpool, Everton and Leeds, and we cannot get too comfortable, we cannot get lazy. These games will push us to our limits and then we will think about solutions for the second game against Atletico.’

Chelsea will be back in action at the weekend when they take on Manchester United in their Premier league encounter and will hope to continue their unbeaten form under Thomas Tunchel.
