Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel dismissed suggestions that Manchester United had any resemblance to a Ralf Rangnick team on Sunday.

The Red Devils and Blues played out a 1-1 draw in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge.

United took the lead through Jadon Sancho, before Joringho equalized from the penalty spot after Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva.

With United set to appoint Rangnick as interim coach in the coming days, Tuchel was asked if their style resembled what the German would demand from his players.

Tuchel told Sky Sports: "No, not at all."

Reflecting on the match, Tuchel added: "I was happy with our aggression, rhythm and intensity with how we defended. (I was a) bit surprised (with the result) as we had so many high ball recoveries and didn't make more clearer chances.

"But happy, absolutely happy. Happy to coach the team - a big effort, huge intensity, lots of ball recoveries in the opponent's half pushed up high. We controlled the counterattacks before they started, we were brave."
