Managers Reaction 

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel said: “It was a freak result for this type of match. 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.”

Rafael Benitez said: “You can say that, because we have so many issues, with injuries, with illness. The way the team played, reacted when we conceded, showed character. It’s a great point, not just the point but the way we claimed it. Everyone realized how important and how difficult it was afterward.”
