Tuchel: The Title Is Far Away, We Must Be Realistic

The German tactician began his reign at the Blues with a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night.

As a result, Chelsea find themselves 11 points adrift of league leaders Manchester City, and Tuchel seemingly feels the club needs to be more realistic about its aspirations for this campaign.

"The title is far away, we have to be realistic," he said after the match against Wolves, as per Sky Sports.

"Honestly, when you sign for Chelsea or, like me, as a manager, you sign for the expectation of challenging for titles; the Premier League, Champions League and all of the cups. That's absolutely clear.

"At the same time you have to be realistic and, at the moment, there are a lot of points and places between us and fourth. We have to work on a daily basis on the details and the progression of our game and the points will follow, I'm absolutely sure.

"We have the capacity with this squad to hurt everybody in every league, in every competition, and it's my job to bring the team to that level as fast as possible."
