Tuchel wants to see out his Chelsea contract 

Thomas Tuchel says he would like to see out his contract at Chelsea, but concedes 'history tells us that it's not that easy'.

Chelsea handed Tuchel a two-year extension at the end of last season, which would keep him at the club until June 2024. If the German is able to avoid the sack until then, he would have lasted three-and-a-half seasons in charge of Chelsea, a feat no manager has achieved under Roman Abramovich's ownership.

"I think I have a contract until 2024," said Chelsea head coach Tuchel, ahead of Tuesday's league match at Brighton.

"Let's stay with this and try to stay as long as this contract says.

"History tells us that it's not that easy, but I feel very confident today that I can make it - I don't want to be anywhere else, this is absolutely sure.

"I feel very happy, let's see what happens, but everyone knows you need results, and I'm responsible for creating an atmosphere that gives us the results."

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton on Tuesday night missing the chance to go above Liverpool.
