Chelsea: Thomas Tuchel blasts mistakes and pitch for Arsenal defeat

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed he was unable to comprehend why his team made so many individual mistakes in their 4-2 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League. The loss came after heavy defeats to Real Madrid and Brentford before the defeat at Stamford Bridge. Andreas Christensen’s poor back pass left Eddie Nketiah through on goal. He made no mistake putting the North London side ahead.

“It was a totally wild and open game in the first half – already a 2-2 after we came back twice. We had a good start but again gave the first goal away, which is impossible to do these things in consecutive matches. But we’re doing it. We came back twice, and we scored another two in the second half, unfortunately for the wrong side.” Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said. “It’s a level of mistakes, the number of mistakes in consecutive games here at home, it’s impossible at this kind of level. You don’t see this. It’s simply impossible, but we’re doing this at the moment, and you cannot win football games like this.”

“To say the pitch is difficult to play here maybe sounds like an excuse, but it is a very, very difficult pitch that we have here. It’s not in our favor,” he added. “The ball bounces very awkwardly in front of Andreas when he wants to play this ball. But still, we had the same mistake against Real Madrid that cost us the next round of the Champions League, and this one cost us the next match. I can’t remember when we got two goals like this. Look at the penalty, and it is an unbelievable goal from our ball possession. There are no tactics behind that. We have three ball losses in ten seconds. Then we do a foul where there’s not even the slightest danger.”
