Managers Reaction

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said: “I don’t care about Liverpool’s other titles. We want to turn things around (against them) but it will not get us the Carabao Cup title back. We are here, we were here last season in the FA Cup Final in a game that means an unbelievable lot for us because it is the FA Cup, the most prestigious and most traditional cup in the world maybe and played at Wembley, so there are not a lot of bigger games to be a part of.”

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira: “This is the kind of game the club wants to be involved in. We have to keep building the team, working well, and the fans were unbelievable. I believe playing these kinds of games with a lot of tension will make us a better team. We had chances and we didn’t score, it’s not just about those chances but the decision-making as well. I don’t think it was bad luck. We tried to play our best but Chelsea was too good on the day for us. I am proud of the team with their approach to this game.”
