esar Azpilicueta says Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel inspired their win over Tottenham.
The Blues were lacklustre in the first half, with Spurs having the better of the chances in the derby clash on Sunday.
However, Chelsea came out of the blocks in the second half, flying on all cylinders.
They picked up a comfortable 3-0 win to take all three points from the contest.
“He [Tuchel] was not happy, we were not happy with our performance,” the Chelsea captain told Sky Sports.
“Even though we were able to arrive around the box we did not shoot on target, they created a few chances where we could have conceded.
“Even in duels we were not as good as we usually are. We were sometimes too open and it was something that we had to address.
“Playing like this, we couldn’t expect to win the game. The best thing we could do was to arrive at half-time at 0-0.
“The reaction was good, everyone is humble enough to accept this and go again and give a strong second half.”
