Thomas Tuchel breaks English derby record with victory at Brentford

Chelsea FC boss Thomas Tuchel broke an English derby record with their 1-0 win over Brentford on Saturday night.

Chelsea were pegged back for most of the second half of the game after taking the lead through Ben Chilwell but keeper Mendy gave out everything to ensure that the Tuchel boys came out unscathed.

With the win, the Blues became the first team ever in the top four tiers of English football to win seven consecutive London derbies, and they did so by only conceding one goal.

To make up Chelsea's incredible record away in London, they have beaten Fulham, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Arsenal, and Brentford, and have been victorious twice against Tottenham to complete the run.

Chelsea have been doing wonders under Tuchel with the club having recorded more clean sheets than goals conceded under the German tactician who arrived at the club early in the year to replace Frank Lampard.

The European Champions sit top of the Premier League after the win on Saturday and will hope that they can carry that form to the Champions League this week.
