Chelsea reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in seven years with a 2-0, 3-0 aggregate astonishing win over Atletico Madrid.
“The most important is that we feel we deserve this,” said Tuchel. “The most important is that we give the feedback for the guys what they did here in terms of quality and intensity.
Atletico had Stefan Savic sent off late on for elbowing Toni Rudiger off the ball, and the Madrid men were well beaten in the event. Disappointed Atletico coach Diego Simeone doffed his cap to Chelsea, then insisted his side will refocus on chasing the Spanish league title.
Chelsea has registered 11 clean sheets in 13 matches without defeat since Tuchel took the helm from Frank Lampard.
