Thomas Tuchel was delighted with Chelsea’s overall performance on Thursday night against Tottenham but was also clear where he sees room for improvement.
Jorginho’s penalty eventually settled the match for the 1-0 win over Spurs.
Questioned on where Chelsea can expect to see further improvements ahead of Sheffield United clash on Sunday, the new boss pointed to needing a more clinical edge in the final third.
Chelsea only hit the target twice in the match, despite 18 shots and nearly 60 per cent possession, and this follows a theme where his attackers have struggled somewhat for goals so far – a blank against Wolves and a 2-0 win over Burnley, with both strikes netted by defenders.
“[We can have] a bit more killer instinct, [be] more aggressive in the box towards the goal; we had chances where we lack a bit of determination in the box but it’s like this: it’s best if we have something to improve and still win.
“This was a big win in an away game, I’m very happy.”
