'Not about my methods' - Tuchel downplays his tactical influence on Chelsea's win over Tottenham

Thomas Tuchel didn't make his post-game commentsabout himself following Chelsea's1-0 win over Tottenham when he very well could have done so, instead praising the spirit of his squad as the determining factor in the positive result.

Tuchel remains unbeatenas Chelsea's boss and has taken six of eight possible Premier League points. He emphasized it has beenhis players, many of whom were scapegoats as of a couple of weeks ago, that are responsible for the change in the club's momentum.

"It's not about my methods. I'm happy with the attitude, the squad, the potential," Tuchel said. "They are fine guys, it's a nice group and they are open. It's a pleasure to be around them. We have a lot of support in the whole club. It was a quick start but an easy one because I feel very welcome.

"We defended very actively and brave."

Chelsea took the lead in the 24thminute through a Jorginho penalty and generally bossed the first half, maintaining a bulk of the possession.

They were less dominant late on but prevented serious threats outside of oneglaring late miss from Spurs forward Carlos Vinicius in front of net.

"It is not only about tactics, it's about how we play and live it," Tuchel told BT Sport. "They lived it 100 percentwith full power and intensity. We never lost the belief, faith or courage to push high and for that you have to be brave and we were."

Chelsea were forced to play the final 54 minutes without defensive leader Thiago Silva, who exited with what Tuchel deemed a muscle injury to his leg.

A narrow away victory under those circumstances was a pleasing result that could help lift the likes of Timo Werner and Mason Mount, who have taken criticism from several frontsthis season. Werner won the first-half penalty, and Mount was the primary midfield threat for the Blues.
