Chelsea scored a later winner to seal the win over Leeds United.
The Blues recorded a 3-2 win over Marco Bielsa’s men to win all the three points at Stamford Bridge.
Tuchel is struggling with injuries in his squad with both N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic out for this game.
The German coach admitted that they got lucky with the win and there are plenty of things they need to work on.
Tuchel said: “It was a nice game of football. Very intense and I’m very happy with how we played [but] of course it’s lucky when you have a late goal in extra time. But coming back twice is very impressive and I’m very happy we turned things around. It was tough work but we didn’t expect anything else.
“We were lucky, we needed this. We were unlucky in last two games conceding very late goals so maybe this is exactly what we needed. […] There’s no alternative to winning in this dressing room.
“We have two days off now [and] I’m really happy for the team and the staff that we have these two days with a feeling that we have turned things around. There are things to improve as always but I’m very happy with the result.”
