N’Golo Kante has won the Champions League ‘POW' and Thomas Full - Pre-Fulham Press Conference

N’Golo Kante has won the Champions League ‘Player of the week’ award. 🥇👏

Thomas Tuchel's Full Pre-Fulham Press Conference:

🔹Tuchel on team news: "No, unfortunately not. He (Kovacic) trained but still not fully comfortable. Antonio Rudiger is also out, he picked up an injury in the last minute against Madrid."

🔹Tuchel on 'One eye on Madrid next week': "Fulham is a good chance to keep our advantage in the league, nothing else. I know very well it is a match between two semi finals, it is not a usual week but I am happy. It is the moment to prove to ourselves that we can focus our energy into tomorrow's game."

🔹Tuchel on Christensen's contract situation: "If he plays like he plays now then he has the right to be here. I am happy he is here, he is happy here."

🔹Thomas Tuchel won't get involved in contract negotiations with players.

🔹Thomas Tuchel is happy for Christian Pulisic to arrive in 'top shape' for 'decisive' part of the season.

🔹Tuchel on Pulisic being compared with Eden Hazard: "He took his number so now he has to live with it!" 😂

🔹Thomas Tuchel: “We are in the middle of the race, it is not easy to switch from one competition to another but who cares? It is my job to find the mix, to put the players in the right mindset and to prepare for this match.”

🔹Thomas Tuchel says you can lose any match but won't accept losing focus or not giving everything - he demands from the squad to be 'fully on' against Fulham.

🔹Thomas Tuchel didn't expect 'too much' when he joined Chelsea as you may disappoint or hold yourself back from over-achieving.

🔹Thomas Tuchel wants and demands Chelsea 'push themselves to the limit' to try to win every match.

🔹Thomas Tuchel on the remaining fixtures: “It's brutal. We played in France the same amount of games and we got the impression but of course the challenge and intensity of this league is different. It is another level, quite relentless. 'no time to breath, or sit back and relax'.”

🔹Tuchel on Ruben Loftus-Cheek: "Its [future] not decided yet. I was a fan of him when he was younger, reminded us a little bit of Michael Ballack. We were well aware of him and his talent. It would absolutely be unfair if I judge him from TV. I love to work with players and give my opinion."

🔹Thomas Tuchel doesn't know why things haven't worked out for Ruben Loftus-Cheek and doesn't know his own/club's opinion yet.

🔹Tuchel on Werner: "Do we wish for more goals? Yes. Does he wish for more goals? Yes. What I mean is he should keep his head up because he can trust his instincts and that he keeps focusing to score, this is what he does. This is what he needs to do."

🔹Thomas Tuchel says the social media boycott will never be enough but it's the best thing to back and join.

🔹Thomas Tuchel says Billy Gilmour 'could' play tomorrow but he has yet to decide: "Could be tomorrow but it is not decided. N'Golo feels good, Jorginho looks good. We miss Kova a lot, I have even the feeling that Jorginho and N'Golo can even step upo in doing everything to recover as fast as possible. They both looked good in training. The decision will be made later today or tomorrow morning. Billy will be in the squad tomorrow."
