Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says he has full respect for Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola.

Chelsea host City tomorrow with Tuchel having beaten Pep in these past three meetings.

Tuchel said, "Not so long ago there were a lot of voices that told me I don't know how to beat Pep. If I look at it honestly I see the last three games as three 50/50 matches. I'm not only talking about before the matches but during the matches it could have been any outcome. Little details decide and you need a bit of luck. I expect nothing else than a 50/50 match tomorrow.

"We want to fight hard to be the guys who have a better outcome. We did it several times with this team and we know how much we suffered also in these matches.

"I have the highest respect for Pep. I'm a huge admirer of the impact he has had. This is something I hugely admire and this will never change. Look at the trophies, look at the influence. There is absolutely no reason why I should ask myself if I'm a better coach or not. I'm a better coach today than I was yesterday and this is enough."
