UCL: We were sharper – Tuchel hails players after win over Juve



The defending UCL champions Chelsea on Tuesday returned to action in the tournament when they hosted Italian side Juventus at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea dominated the Old Ladies throughout the match as the game ended in a 4-0 win for the Blues thanks to goals from Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner.

With the latest result, Chelsea are leading by three points in Group H.

Speaking in a post-match statement, the Blues coach, Thomas Tuchel, was quick to praise his players as he complimented how they adopted a different mindset.

Chelsea had suffered a 1-0 defeat to Juve in the first leg of the tournament in Italy some months back.
