He said: "I think in Premier League it is always mentality. In derbies, you rely on what you're used to doing and do not overstretch the point that it is a derby.

"The special atmosphere helps you, you feel it instantly. Why to do special things on a special occassion? Do your normal things on your level and do them consistently."

Chelsea are looking to make it eight away London derby wins in a row as they travel to the London Stadium on Saturday.

"In my opinion if you talk about a derby and being important, you will feel it when you go into the stadium. You will feel it before. The fans are excited, it comes to you anyway. No need to stress this point. We focus on our behaviors." Tuchel concluded.
