Speaking on press conference Tuchel talked about their opponents on Sunday. Under Antonio Conte they have scored the most goals in the league in 2022, conscious counter-attacking threat of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Tuchel how Chelsea side can stop Spurs attackers on Sunday, having beaten Spurs four times in 2021/22, without conceding.
"We have to be very disciplined in certain regions of the game. They stepped a level up, they are playing the same structure but they have a pattern in their offensive pressing and defensive attitude. This changes a lot.
"It’s very important we’re good on the ball, the dominant team, and put the game into the opponents’ halves, and from there control the counter-attacks before everyone else sees it.
"They are one of the very best teams, maybe in the world, at counter-attacks. We did a fantastic job in closing it down (last season). The players were unbelievably disciplined and aware.
"We can never lose our structure and our head while we are attacking. This is the moment to stop the counter-attack. If they start, you’re in big trouble, so we need to be smart and stop the counter-attacks before they start." Tuchel stated.
