Tuchel’s side were heading for a point at Stamford Bridge, but James Ward Prowse’s red card in the 77th minute handed the initiative to the hosts.
Timo Werner, along with Ben Chilwell, got on the scoresheet inside the final 10 minutes to wrap up the win.
Intriguingly, Tuchel decided to bring on forgotten man Ross Barkley. The 27-year-old midfielder has barely featured all season. However, he made an instant impact off the bench by spraying a beautiful pass to pre-assist the goal that made it 2-1 at the time.
Shearer has praised the in-game decision from Chelsea’s boss, who he considers to be one of the best managers around.
