After that thunderous Giroud over-head kick against a well Defensively organized team like Atletico Madrid, you wouldn’t blame the young German tactician for preferring his french center forward to his German center forward who is yet to find his feet in the premier league.
A game that was solely left for chelsea to decide the outcome yesterday later ended in a goal less draw.
Speaking to Chelsea Defender Andres Christensen about chelsea deserving a win yesterday he said;
Both teams deserved winning the first half, but we deserved winning the second half, truth be told we weren’t clinical at the other end of the pitch
The introduction of Timo Werner in the second half brought life to chelsea blunt first half attack.
We would list four Reasons why we think Thomas Tuchel Refused to use Timo Werner against Manchester United.
- He doesn’t really trust him to deliver due to his massive dip in form ever since he arrived at Stamford bridge from Rb lepzig where he almost bossed the Bundesliga. He doesn’t seem premier league fit yet and you wouldn’t blame Tuchel for not having 100% confidence in him.
- Olivier Giroud heroics against Atletico Madrid in the Ucl was enough reason not to start Timo Werner as Giroud always turns up in the big games. Leaving him out completely might have costed Tuchel since Giroud game isn’t always about goals he does his best to bring the other attackers into play. His unique style of play that gave France the world cup without him neting a goal.
- Timo Werner goal drought and inconsistency.
- The Tactics he intended playing against Manchester United didn’t really fancy Timo Werner as a viable option.
Tuchel was also furious on the referee decision not to give chelsea a penalty despite checking the VAR.
🗣 "He did everything right, don't understand why he needs to check it."
