Chelsea returned to winning ways on Saturday with a thumping victory over Southampton that offered manager Thomas Tuchel renewed optimism for the challenges that lie ahead.A 6-0 demolition of Saints at St Mary’s sets the Blues up for another big week as they look to salvage the defence of their UEFA Champions League title before going to Wembley for an FA Cup semi-final against Crystal Palace.They will travel to Spain looking to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu with fresh confidence after two goals each by Mason Mount and Timo Werner inspired them to their biggest away win of the season.Tuchel had declared their tie with record 13-time winners Real was no longer alive following Wednesday’s game at Stamford Bridge, calling his team’s display “alarming”.
