Chelsea: Tuchel’s strange excuse to explain defeat against Arsenal

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel took questions on the lawn of Stamford Bridge after their defeat against Arsenal (2-4) on Wednesday evening, a third in a row for the Blues at home.

It’s an excuse we didn’t see coming. On Wednesday evening, following Chelsea’s loss against Arsenal (2-4), Blues coach Thomas Tuchel questioned the lawn at Stamford Bridge. “It sounds like an excuse but it’s very difficult to play here, it’s not in our favor”, the German regretted.

Tuchel notably took as an example the Gunners’ first goal, which was intercepted by Neketia on a poor pass from Christensen. “The ball bounces very strangely in front of Andreas, underlined the Chelsea coach. But above all we make the same mistake against Real Madrid. It cost us the Champions League qualification, this time costing us the match.” fell.”

“It must stop”

The pitch, however, was not solely responsible for the Blues’ defeat and was not to blame for Arsenal’s other three goals. “You have to have the right strategy, and I doubt I was good at that, recognized Tuchel. You also need the right team composition and I doubt I was good on that side as well.”

The German, however, refused to take any responsibility for the loss and pointed to the attitude of his players. “When they win they get praised and they have to face the reality: You can’t win games like this if you make so many mistakes of this level. It has to stop.” The Blues are still third in the Premier League, with a short lead over Tottenham and Arsenal, but they will have to find their way to success at home.
