Managers Reaction

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “We lost control in 10 minutes. 3-1 within 10 minutes was decisive. We lacked energy today and we looked mentally and physically tired after being around the world. We thought we got the result [at 1-0] but we forgot we still had 40 minutes to play. After so many wins and so many good results, I refuse to make a drama out of it because why should we. Brentford made a lot of the 10 minutes we gave them. After the third goal, we had a disallowed goal, we had a pressing situation against the goalkeeper, a big, big chance for Havertz, we missed three of them and a feeling ‘this is not our day’. There are some reasons we can put on us and we will analyze.”

Brentford boss Thomas Frank: “Christian is a top player, an unbelievable character and he brings quality and calmness to the team. You can give it to Christian and he’ll always find a solution. From the beginning, I thought ‘everything has been checked in his entire body. He didn’t have an injury like an ACL. When he took that decided he wanted to play in the World Cup, he had that determination: ‘I want to come back into football’”
