Thomas Tuchel insists Chelsea will never celebrate their title rivals slipping up after Manchester City and Liverpool lost points on Saturday.

Chelsea sealed a 3-0 win over Newcastle United at St James’ Park, meanwhile Liverpool wasting a two-goal lead to a 2-2 draw at home to Brighton.

But the biggest unrest of the day came at the Etihad Stadium, when Manchester City were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace, while Aymeric Laporte was sent off for the Premier League champions.

Chelsea’s win means they are now three points ahead of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, but Tuchel is adamant he will not get carried away.

“There will never be a moment where we celebrate the results on the other pitches,” Tuchel said after Chelsea’s win over Newcastle.

‘Firstly, it’s way too early, secondly, we want to focus on ourselves, and thirdly, what’s going on is coming, we are not doing it, there’s a long way to go again.

‘If you think we’re even happier now, that’s definitely not true.

‘I am absolutely satisfied today with our performance off the ball, this was the key for me from the first to the last minute, the effort and discipline that we put into the moments off the ball was the key today.

‘We should have our feet on the ground and pay attention to what we put into the fights, what we are capable of winning.

‘I am very happy with the team effort today.

‘We do not celebrate other teams’ results, you can lose any match in this league. We focus on ourselves and we continue, let’s see where it ends’.
