Which, by the way, rubbed salt in the wounds as Tuchel saw Harry Kane’s dying header rip the three points from his side’s hands.

However, Chelsea will be keen to make their gaffer proud when they face a rejuvenated Leeds side away.

But Jesse Marsch’s team might be feeling a little disheartened after throwing away a two-goal lead to a 2-2 draw with Southampton at St Mary’s recently.
