EPL: We are in race for top three - Tuchel admits defeat in title bid

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has admitted they are now in a race to finish in the Premier League top three.

According to the German, he never imagined being 13 points behind leaders Manchester City in the title race.

Tuchel says he is not happy with the situation, but claims he is comforted with the Blues in the Carabao Cup final, still in the Champions League and FA Cup.

He will also travel with his squad next month for the Club World Cup.

When asked whether when he took the job he would have thought being 13 points behind was good enough, Tuchel said: “No, of course not. We would never have accepted that before. Never. But this is the reality now and just because it is like this, not everything is bad.

“If you think that to tell the story that way, it is fair enough and we can take it. We know what we do and we know what we are up for. At the moment we are 13 points behind and we are in a race of top three.

“So this is the situation and from there we go. But we would not have accepted it one year ago. I would not have accepted it four weeks ago and I did not accept it when we arrived at City in the moment that we are.

“That is what makes us and I am absolutely comfortable to not accept it because I work for Chelsea and we play for Chelsea, so when we play, we play to win.”
