Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “I won’t take it personally that you make a judgment here that my players are not listening to me, which I don’t find so nice but I leave it with you and your opinion.” he added. “I think that we had a very good first 15 minutes and we stopped doing the things we did in the first 15 minutes. We were forgetting why we were the better team, because the investment, the level of concentration, the level of physical investment were high enough to be the better team.”
