Chelsea Hand Juventus Unwanted History Record After 4-0 Thrashing

Chelsea inflict Juventus' heaviest ever defeat in the Champions League on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge.

But Tuchel isn't getting carried away. He knows more challenges will come as they take their Champions League journey step by step. 

"We need to do it step by step," reflected the Blues head coach.
