Pep finally gets the better of Tuchel

A game against Manchester City and Chelsea always promises to be a very great encounter. On Saturday afternoon Manchester City took on Chelsea, the game delivered as expected as both teams gave it their all in the game.

It was also the battle of the coaches as Manchester City head coach Pep came to this game having never defeated Thomas Tuchel ever since Thomas Tuchel joined the Chelsea team. Pep was looking for his first win against Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team. Pep recorded his first win against Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team as they defeated Chelsea 1-0. A goal from Gabriel Jesus ensured that Pep got his first win against Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team and earned his team all three points on the day.

Thomas Tuchel joined Chelsea last year as he took over from Frank Lampard and managed to win Chelsea the UEFA champions league and also ensured that the Chelsea team qualifies for the UEFA champions league, as they ended in the 4th place in last year's Premier League.

Thomas Tuchel played against Manchester City as Chelsea coach four times, as he managed to win three times and lost only one game.

The first clash for these two coaches was when they played in the FA cup semi-final when Chelsea won the game 1-0. The second clash was in the Premier League when Chelsea won the encounter 2-1. The third encounter was in the UEFA champions league final when Chelsea also won that game 1-0.

The last clash was the recent one that Manchester City won 1-0. Hopefully there is still more clashes to come between these two great coach, as a clash against them is always an interesting clash to watch. Today's lose against Manchester City was the first lose Chelsea recorded this season from all competitions.
