Speaking ahead of Saturday's FA Cup final, as cited by Anfield Watch's Twitter account, Tuchel talked about how he is expecting another close game against Liverpool and Chelsea.
"We are in the final, against one of the best opponents we could possibly face, and we are incredibly excited to get out there and play on this fantastic stage," said Tuchel.
"When you play against Liverpool, you know what’s coming – they will come at you at full speed, with high intensity and the highest quality, both on the ball and off the ball. So this is it, this is what we have to expect.
"We can reflect on good games against them this season. The League Cup final at Wembley was a fantastic game for both teams and we needed 22 penalties to find a winner.
"The home match against them in the league was a great match, when we came back to draw 2-2, and the 1-1 draw earlier in the season, at Anfield, was also a brilliant game. So there is a record of very, very close games between these two sides.
Mo Salah on facing Real Madrid in the #UCL in just over two weeks:
"That should give us courage and also give us a clear picture of what is needed, physically, mentally, in every sense, to win today. To say it out loud – we need everything to be at its highest level."
Anfield Watch Verdict
If we're basing it off recent form, this game should be a formality for Jurgen Klopp's side.
Tuchel will be aware of this and his team seemingly have a mountain to climb ahead of Saturday's final.
