German coach Thomas Tuchel had just his First loss as Chelsea Manager in a tight match against West Bromwich Albion this afternoon at The Bridge.
Tuchel trusted the line-up for the game but it proved wrong as Chelsea side lost to The Baggies.
“I trusted this line-up and I thought the line-up was strong enough to win this game.” – Tuchel
Tuchel admitted Chelsea game play to be slow and not energetic as it had been before the international break.
“We did not do well to adapt to our positions and the pressure and we gave way easily.” – Tuchel
The Boss pointed that Chelsea had lots of chances but could not deliver goals
“We had big chances and we were again not precise enough and we missed a lot of opportunities to finish this game early…” – Tuchel
Tuchel also stated the Chelsea side today could not play along with 1-man down on the squad.
“We were not able today to adapt to one man down and there’s absolutely no need to concede five goals if you are one man down…”
He clearly rated the defence to slack in the game giving spaces for goals.
