Tuchel conquers Europe's top coaches: Pep, Zidane, Simeone, Klopp, Mourinho...

Thomas Tuchel has done an excellent job since taking over at Chelsea in January, leading the team to a top four finish and then to the Champions League title. He did so with a 1-0 win over Manchester City, his third victory over Pep Guardiola's side since arriving at Stamford Bridge.

Guardiola isn't the only elite coach that Tuchel has conquered with Chelsea over these past few months. The German also defeated Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid side in both legs of their Champions League last 16 tie, before having one draw and one win over Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid in the semi-finals.

In Tuchel's one meeting with Liverpool since taking over at Chelsea, his Blues won 1-0 at Anfield to give him a victory over his former mentor Jurgen Klopp. It was a similar story against Jose Mourinho, with Chelsea winning 1-0 away at their city rivals. Against Carlo Ancelotti, Tuchel oversaw a 2-0 win over Everton in their only Premier League meeting so far.

From 30 matches, Tuchel has had 20 wins, six draws and just five defeats. Those losses came against Sam Allardyce's West Brom, Sergio Conceicao's Porto, Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, Brendan Rodgers' Leicester and Dean Smith's Aston Villa.
