See Thomas Tuchel reply when asked if Chelsea are ready for 2022/23 season

Angry Thomas Tuchel conceded he doubts his Chelsea side are prepared for the new season after they were thrashed 4-0 by Arsenal in the last round of their US tour.

The German added he proved unable ‘not mention’ champions Manchester City and second-placed Liverpool, stating bluntly: “We got absolutely beaten by a team that does not play Champions League football this season.”

What’s more, following a hopeless night in Orlando which saw his failing forefront again struggle he turned on his strikers, expressing: ‘It’s the same players – why should anything change?’

The impressive Gunners took a 2-0 lead into the break thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard. Bukayo Saka’s second-half tap-in and Albert Sambi Lokonga’s injury-time header completed the rout in front of close to 64,000.

It completed a thoroughly underwhelming tour in which Chelsea defeated Mexico’s Club America in Las Vegas but then fell to defeats against MLS side Charlotte FC and Mikel Arteta’s rampant side.

Tuchel, who has so far added £47.5m Raheem Sterling and £34m Kalidou Koulibaly but is desperate for further reinforcements, cut a frustrated figure.

He suggested Charlotte had shown more courage than Chelsea on Wednesday night and he again questioned his side’s mentality in Florida.

“We were simply not good enough,’ he said. ‘We were absolutely not competitive. The worrying part is the level of commitment, physically and mentally…it was far higher for Arsenal than us.”

When asked if he felt Chelsea would be ready for the start of the forthcoming season – in less than two weeks – he suggested not and claimed some of his players’ minds were elsewhere, with doubts over the futures of the likes of Timo Werner and Cesar Azpilicueta.

“I cannot guarantee,’ he said. ‘(There was) a level of mental commitment that we lacked because we have a lot of players who are thinking about leaving and looking at their options.”

Report: Converse between Man Utd and Adrien Rabiot slow down

Adrien Rabiot’s move to Man United is at risk, according to several sources.

Fabrizio Romano claims that United still find Rabiot’s salary demands too high, so an agreement on personal terms can’t be reached.

Gianluca Di Marzio adds that the negotiations have slowed down with the Juventus player.

Besides, Rabiot remains unconvinced about Manchester United as his destination this season as they won’t play in the Champions League.

Earlier reports claimed that Rabiot’s representatives have reached an agreement over the personal terms with Man United – but such claims appear to be wide of the mark now.
