Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has asked his Blues players to be focused as they prepare for Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League semi-final first-leg tie against Real Madrid.
Tuchel wants Chelsea to play at the highest level against Zinedine Zidane’s side when both teams clash at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in Spain.
Chelsea head to the game following a 1-0 victory against West Ham United in the Premier League over the weekend.
Asked about the forthcoming clash against Real Madrid, Tuchel told his post-match press conference after Chelsea’s win over West Ham: “All the performances are a new benchmark for us.
“If we do it now, we want to do it on Tuesday again, and if we do it on Tuesday, we want to do it on Saturday again.
“This is how we approach our team, and this is how you approach high-level sports. You cannot be distracted by visions that are too far away.
“I’m very happy with the consistency of our quality and the level we can deliver every three days. It is always a team effort.
“This is what we demand for Tuesday. Full focus and reach your own highest level and play on that level. This will not change.”
