Thomas Tuchel and Mason Mount both expressed their delight at what they called a step forward as Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in their London derby on Thursday evening.
Chelsea went ahead half-way through the first half of the encounter with Jorginho netting from the penalty spot.
The Blues, who are still looking to adjust to their new manager, produced a professional performance against a Spurs side who are struggling for form at the moment.
Tuchel was left pleased with his side’s intensity and willingness to adapt, while he did admit that they lacked the killer instinct to finish off the game.
