Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes that his side’s draw against Everton was a freak result as they fall further behind in the title race. Chelsea dominated the game against a depleted Everton side where they had 23 shots. Jordan Pickford was brilliant in the Everton net making nine saves with only Mason Mount able to breach his goal. Jarrad Branthwaite scored his first goal for the club to grab a share of the points to cap a disappointing week for Everton.
“It was a freak result for this type of match,” Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said. “We were strong enough today and I’m not sure right now why we get punished. We see teams concede more chances than we do but we only have a draw. I am concerned we have too many players out; today six or seven players. I think this at the moment is the problem, one of the key problems. In central midfield, for eight weeks. For today we had our strikers out and that was the case for four weeks with Timo (Werner) and Romelu (Lukaku) out.”
“We need to find the balance, be honest, critical with each other, but accept sometimes we get punished for not a lot,” he added. “I would be more concerned if we were totally out of form, conceding the first goal and then struggling to come back. It would be easier to analyze. I don’t think it’s too easy to analyze our situation.”
