Thomas Tuchel was critical of Timo Werner in spite of the critical away goal scored in their 1-1 draw against Real Madrid. Timo Werner missed a big chance to score ten minutes into the game when Christian Pulisic laid it on a plate for him.

The German has been out of form since his move from RB Leipzig. He scored his first goal since February against West Ham in the Premier League on the weekend. Thomas Tuchel admitted that it’s frustrating to see Timo Werner spurn “big chances”.

“He missed a big one at West Ham and now he’s missed a big one here, that does not help,” he said. “But it doesn’t help to cry about it or to regret it all the time.”

“There are millions of people who have harder things to deal with than chances that you miss. So the good thing about sport is that no one cares tomorrow, today we were sad and angry at the moment – this is normal. He is sad, he is angry and disappointed.” he added. “Tomorrow he has a free day and the next day he must put his chin up. He’s a top guy, a professional guy. He works hard. He’s in the positions. He will not stop believing. Everyone accepts the situation like it is. With strikers, if you score the next game, nobody speaks.”

Madrid looked like an ageing side throughout the first half against a lively Chelsea attack. They took the lead early on capitalizing on the pressure. Christian Pulisic rounded goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to slot past a hapless Raphael Varane on the line. Against the run of play, Karim Benzema scored with a sensational volley to pull them level with Chelsea. This spurned the Spanish side and they were more competitive for the remainder of the game.
