Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel thanks Spurs for top-four finish

Thomas Tuchel thanks Tottenham Hotspur for helping them secure Champions League football.

The Blues were lucky to qualify for the Champions League as they lost 2-1 at Aston Villa on their final game of the Premier League 2020/21 season.

Leicester conceded three times in the final minutes of a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

Tuchel said: “We are lucky Tottenham did the job for us. We came to win and to put any doubts to the side and it was not possible.

“We need to adjust details and we need to be spot-on on Saturday if we are going to have a positive outcome.

“I knew three or four minutes before our game was over (that they had made the top four) because the game at Leicester was over a bit earlier and it was clear we were through.

“We did not prepare for the occasion today, we prepared for the match. It’s normally hard to create chances against Aston Villa but we created a lot.

“We are still a young team and we try to evolve and make them better. We needed many clean sheets to overcome this lack of composure and precision. Today we conceded out of nothing and made it hard to come back.”
