Thomas Tuchel has stressed that it is “far too early” to draw any conclusions in the Premier League title race despite it looking like a big weekend for Chelsea.

The German watched his side move three points clear of Liverpool after beating Newcastle United 3-0 at St James’ Park on Saturday, as Jurgen Klopp’s team drew at home with Brighton and Hove Albion while Manchester City lost at the Etihad Stadium to Crystal Palace.

Still, Tuchel urged caution and stressed there was a “long way to go”.

“There has never been a moment where we celebrate results on the other pitches,” he said.

“First of all, it’s far too early and second of all we want to focus on ourselves instead of others. What goes around comes around, we don’t do this.

“There’s a long way to go. I’m absolutely happy today with our performance off the ball. This was the key for me from the first minute to the last, the effort and discipline.”
