Manchester United captain Harry Maguire says he has been impressed with the start Thomas Tuchel has made at Chelsea.
The former Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund manager has made an instant impact at the club since replacing Frank Lampard.
Under their new coach, Chelsea have re-established their top four credentials and could be set to reach the Champions League quarter finals after an impressive midweek 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid.
Prior to United’s goalless draw with Chelsea, Maguire said: ‘Obviously, Chelsea’s going to be a tough game but we went there last year and won and we will be looking to do that again.
‘They are keeping their position very nicely and build up really well and not conceding many goals, so it is a good start (for them). We are hoping to spoil that.
‘It is a great reaction (to the change of manager). They are a great group of players with tons of talent and the money they spent in the summer, they are starting to gel, starting to tick, but we have got to look at ourselves, first and foremost.
‘We go into the game full of confidence, full of belief. We will make sure we play to the ability of what we are capable of and go and get the three points.’

‘Every three or four days you’ve got to be focused and mentally prepared to go and get the three points,” Maguire added.
‘You have got to be prepared to keep winning, winning, winning and finding that consistency to enable us to get to where we want to be. If you want to get to where we want to be, you have got to be consistent.
