Chelsea’s clash with Leeds United tonight is ‘do or die’ for the Whites.
Leeds United are currently languishing in the relegation zone and can go above Burnley if they managed to beat Chelsea tonight at Elland Road.
Tuchel also admits that his squad looks drained in the last few games but wants a better performance in the three remaining games.
Tuchel said: “This is a match for them when it’s like do or die. It’s like a cup match and the atmosphere will be like this. I’m looking forward to it actually. I’ve played there once but it was without spectactors. We will feel it straight away so we will need to step up.”
He added: “We look a bit drained, tired mentally. You look at our games and it’s understandable. Losing to Real Madrid, beating Real Madrid but still being out of the Champions League.
“It’s another reason and everybody knows it. Still, even being tired and distracted, we need to reach a certain level and we can do better than in the last two matches. The motivation was very high to turn things around against Wolves, it was maybe almost too high as we attacked with defenders and opened spaces for counter attacks.”
