Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said “it does not take a miracle” to beat Manchester City.
Tuchel has defeated Pep Guardiola’s team three consecutive times since he arrived at Stamford Bridge in January.
The Blues host City on Saturday three months after beating them in last season’s Champions League final, a victory which followed on from successes in their FA Cup semifinal and a Premier League meeting at Etihad Stadium.
Chelsea can move six points clear of the champions with another win.
“We have the positive experiences and we know how tough it feels at half-time in the dressing room, how much work we put into it, what kind of input was needed.
“We know very well what it takes to have the possibility to win. I have the feeling it does not take a miracle to win against Manchester City but it is absolutely necessary we bring out our best performance.
“This is tough enough and this is maybe the confidence it gives you but it is one of the biggest tests in European football. This game tomorrow is in our stadium and we feel ready,” Tuchel said.
