'Every Competition is Important' - Thomas Tuchel On Chelsea's Trophy Priorities This Season

Thomas Tuchel says 'every competition is important' to Chelsea this season as they look to fight on all fronts.

Chelsea are going strong in the Premier League, sitting at the top of the table after nine games and also sit well in second in their Champions League group behind Juventus. 

In the Carabao Cup they are still going along smoothly after another penalty shootout win, this time against Southampton, to progress into the quarters.

Tuchel was pleased with his side's application on Tuesday night to deal with the constant challenges that the Saints posed in the capital. 

"When you play Southampton you know what you get, intensity, high pressing, a team full of courage and speed," he added.
