THOMAS Tuchel has warned Chelsea not to expect an easy ride during a run of fixtures that could boost their Premier League title challenge.

Tuchel’s side have a golden opportunity to cement their position at the top of the Premier League over the next five matches.

But, wary about sending the wrong message to his players, Chelsea boss Tuchel said it would be foolish to expect five wins just because they will go into the matches as favourites.

“I cannot agree less with you because you used the word easier,” Tuchel told reporters yesterday.

“If favourite means things will be easy, we cannot be more wrong and this is the total wrong path to go. If being favourite means we still expect a tough one tomorrow at Brentford then this is a good one to accept.”

Brentford have already shown they are not intimidated by supposedly superior opponents, having beaten Arsenal and drawn with Liverpool in their first top-flight campaign since the 1946/47 season. — SuperSport
