Thomas Tuchel was happy with what he saw from his players against Wolves.
Chelsea managed a 0-0 draw with a number of starters dropped in surprising fashion.
“I enjoyed it a lot because I was very happy with the intensity, the attitude, energy and quality of my team, we were well organised, had a lot of ball recoveries in the last third, never lacked intensity,” he told Match of the Day.
“We stepped up minute after minute in the second half. I was very happy performance-wise, unfortunately, we couldn’t score, if we take care of our performance like this, the results will come.
“It reminded me a bit of our games in Dortmund, we had a very good training session yesterday, 21 guys who were totally awake, to try to do what we are doing – tactically, structure, where to accelerate the game, how to defend – I didn’t expect it to be on this level from one training and two meetings. It gives me a good feeling for the future.
“It was today totally unfair because I had no explanation for anybody on the side why they didn’t play. Every day will help.”
Mason Mount and Timo Werner were kept on the bench while Kai Havertz, Olivier Giroud and Hakim Ziyech formulated the front line.
