Tuchel started March with a 1-0 win over Klopp’s reigning Premier League champions. This was the Blues’ first win at Anfield since 2014.
A 2-0 home win over Everton followed before Tuchel drew a goalless draw at Leeds United to expand his unbeaten Premier League start to 10 games.
Tuchel won the award after combining the votes of the public with those of a group of football experts.
He defeated nominees Graham Potter from Brighton, Brendan Rodgers from Leicester and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer from Manchester United.
“I’m really happy to receive this award and I think it’s a great achievement for everyone at the club who are involved in putting the team together to play every week,” Tuchel told Chelsea’s official website.
‘The award wouldn’t be possible if the hard work of all of my coaching staff and the broader support team didn’t push the team in the same direction to be successful.
“Finally, I would like to acknowledge the hard work of the players who have shown me the greatest possible effort and dedication since I arrived and we hope that we can continue this strong run until the end of the season.”
Tuchel’s side will be next in action on Saturday lunchtime when they greet West Brom in their first Premier League game since the international break at Stamford Bridge.
