Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel insists he fancies his side’s chances of beating Manchester United this weekend.

The German tactician hailed the strength of the United team and surely know the kind of game to expect having faced the Red Devils on several occasions during his time as PSG Boss.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer’s side are still unbeaten away from home in the Premier League this season, but Tuchel is hopeful of winning the game and denting United’s excellent away record.

Tuchel said: “Hopefully we win, we know this is a big challenge.

“They are unbeaten away so we know what we are up against. They have individual quality, can hurt you with speed, they are a strong team away from home, defend very compact, very good in transitions.”
