Chelsea head coach, Thomas Tuchel, has described Fulham as a tough team who always frustrates the efforts of big teams.
The Chelsea boss who was overwhelmed with their 2-0 win over Fulham said his players were just determined to win on Saturday.
“We knew Fulham gives everyone a hard time. They make you under-perform, and they make you suffer. You cannot get confused with the table. That’s why I have the highest respect for what we did today. It was tough for us, but we hang in the game. We could decide the match earlier, but it was a tough and very important win.
“We were spot on. It was what we demanded from ourselves. We showed the pride we are capable of – to do it in between two big games. I’m beyond happy that we did it. There was no lack of concentration. We had some trouble which everyone against this Fulham side has but there was no lack of concentration and that was key.”
