Looking forward to Sunday’s meeting with the Hammers, Tuchel explained why he was impressed with the work David Moyes has done with his side this season. They have a Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt starting next week.
‘He’s doing an incredible job. It’s a very popular and emotional club, and a team together with the coach that is enjoyable to watch. I followed the Europa League games, it’s a full investment physically, the players are tired after their matches, it’s a very emotional and physical squad, very hard to break down, very hard to create chances, very dangerous in counter-attacks and set-pieces.
‘There is a lot to take care about. We will need a lot of physicality and commitment to stand up against them, and it will be a very tough one of course.’
