Thomas Tuchel apologised to Chelsea fans after their win over Newcastle… for missing their chant about him and his team.

Chelsea ensured they stayed top of the Premier League with a convincing 3-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

The travelling supporters to St James’ Park loved every minute of it and showed their appreciation for their German boss by chanting his song throughout.

The words to the chant sung by the Blues faithful goes: ‘We’ve got super Thomas Tuchel. He knows exactly what we need. Thiago at the back, Timo in attack. Chelsea’s going to win the Champions League!’

But it seems the travelling supporters sat up high in the stands at Newcastle failed to get their song heard by the man in charge.

‘Oh, I didn’t hear it, I’m sorry for that,’ Tuchel told Chelsea TV after the game when asked about his chant.

‘I was impressed we had so many supporters here [at St James’ Park].

‘To calm the [home fans] crowd down like we did today is also an achievement. It was by quality and concentration — well done, to the players.

‘I’m happy that we could score three goals in front of our spectators in an away game.’

A brace from Reece James and a penalty from Jorginho were enough to see Chelsea take maximum points against Newcastle.

Chelsea’s full-backs have been contributing goals this season with Ben Chilwell and Marcos Alonso getting on the scoresheet and Tuchel is delighted to see his tactics paying off.

‘If it was so easy we would just demand it every three days! In general we rely on our wing-backs to arrive in the box. Chilly was decisive in the last matches. Azpi, Marcos were in earlier matches,’ he said.

‘Today it was Reecey, two brilliant finishes to secure the victory. It’s not easy but when you play as wing-backs it is necessary to be dangerous from your positions.’
