No manager in the history of the English top-flight has managed as many clean sheets as Tuchel in their respective debut spells in English football.

Mourinho and Scolari have been holding the record for most clean sheets kept in their EPL bow, with the legendary managers guiding their sides to 10 of them from 15 matches.

Both Timo Werner and Kai Havertz played a pivotal part in the history-making tie vs Fulham as the pair combined perfectly to down the relegation-threatened side.

Werner set up his countryman for the opener inside 10 minutes before assisting for the second shortly after the break.

The win cemented Chelsea's place in the top four as they now have a 6-point cushion over fifth-placed West Ham United with four matches left to end the season.
