Speaking ahead of Sunday’s match, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted that Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes poses a serious threat to his side and has labeled the Portuguese star as ‘absolutely quality’.
The two sides, who are preparing to face-off at Stamford Bridge for Sunday’s standout fixtures, both come into the game in decent form.
Since taking over from Frank Lampard in the Blues’ dugout, Tuchel has yet to taste defeat, elsewhere, United are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions.
Speaking ahead of the mouth-watering tie, Tuchel was quick to identify Fernandes’ threat as he hilariously suggested the best way to deal with him is for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to bench him.
Thomas Tuchel explains his team selection, including why Ziyech comes in for Werner.
