My mistake led to Chelsea's loss - Tuchel

Sat 25 September 2021 | 18:20

The Blues' coach believes that his mistakes led to the result of today's match.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has claimed that his tactical mistakes led to his side's defeat to Manchester City.

Chelsea lost 1-0 at home to the defending champions today. Chelsea's unbeaten run ended with City losing today, with Tuchel using a three defense against Guardiola and put Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku in attack. Now Tuchel claimed that his tactical mistakes in this match caused his team to lose.

"We lost the game and I think City deserved to win," Tuchel said.

"Until the goal, we were very, very strong in the last 20 metres of the field [Chelsea's defensive area], but only there unfortunately, and in the 80 metres left we were not good enough to escape pressure, to have ball possession, and not only ball possession to breathe but ball possession to switch play and to hurt them and to grow in confidence. 

"Until then, we defended very well the box and the goal, it was excellent, but this was the only part of the match. "

The performance was not complex enough, it was overall not on our very best level, and you need your best level to push a game like this to your side."
