Thomas Tuchel bemoans Chelsea display: ‘Man City made us underperform - you cannot expect a result’

The home facet failed to even sign up a shot on target – with Tuchel slamming their top quality on the ball and willingness to choose hazards.

The German explained: “The tactic was incredibly easy, if you want to perform at this degree, you will need all the things.

“You need to have possession, extended balls, want to have defending, ball wins in transition. We relied on the final 20 metres and they produced us defend deep.

“We could not escape the tension. It was a question of choice making, vision, specific overall performance to be so imprecise in our selection generating.

“We have been not on our highest level. It is as uncomplicated as that. You cannot assume a result.

“We played with the mentality that we had a thing to drop but there was nothing to eliminate listed here. It was a great reaction, a large amount of threats that we took and I last but not least had the feeling that this is the mentality that you require from the start off. That you acquire pitfalls and accept risks. That was not the situation now, they produced us underperform and they deserved to acquire.”

Tuchel reduce a furious figure on the touchline as City totally dominated.

Gabriel Jesus’ 2nd 50 percent strike was adequate to settle the video game – but it Chelsea’s lack of attacking intent that infuriated their manager.

Romelu Lukaku was as tranquil as he has been in a Chelsea shirt, but Tuchel refused to lay the blame on the £97.5million striker.
