Chelsea hasn’t been at their best of forms in the recent weeks of the Premier League securing only one out of their last 5 games. With the recent defeat to the League leaders, Chelsea currently sits at around third place in the Premier League Table, 13-points behind the Champions.

Ahead of their encounter against Brighton, the German manager was asked about whether Chelsea is out of the Premier League race. Thomas Tuchel responded by saying that people will question him (Thomas Tuchel) irrespective of how he answers the question.

He said, “If I say no now, you will maybe think, well can he read the fixture. What is wrong with him? What’s wrong with him?

But, if I say yes, you will maybe doubt my ability to be coach of Chelsea, and then you think like, did he give it up?

It’s a tough one.”

Thomas Tuchel goes on to appreciate Manchester City‘s efforts and the way they managed to secure 12 Premier League wins in a row.

He said, “We have [to] simply admit that City is in a very very strong place and the points they gathered in the last 12 matches is a 100%. So they earned what they have.”

However, Tuchel does mention that his team will never give up until the Premier League race is actually over.

We will never give up, never, never, never until the race is over. We are in the middle of the race.

I told you many weeks before we are in a good place because we are in the middle of the race. Yeah, the middle of the race maybe not anymore, but we are still in the race and we have to take care about ourselves, [as] in the moment we can do nothing more

Currently, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool has leapfrogged Chelsea into second place and are Pep Guardiola’s closest challengers, however, the Citizens still have an 11 point lead over Liverpool (one match in hand).
