Thomas Tuchel slams Chelsea first-half display despite win at Spurs

Thomas Tuchel slams Chelsea first-half display despite win at Spurs

Thomas Tuchel slammed Chelsea for being “sloppy” in their 3-0 win against Tottenham, accusing them of turning up with the wrong attitude.

Tuchel admitted he was unhappy with their first half display.

“We forgot to bring the right attitude and energy to this game,” the German said. “There were individual performances at a high level. For example, Thiago Silva and Kepa. But as a team, we allowed too many chances, way too many easy ball losses, not enough ball possession, and every 50-50 duel went against us.

“This had to change and, well, if you have N’Golo on the bench and you want to step up in these parts of the game, it’s the best player to bring on because he is unique and can change any momentum.

“For me it was clear they had another energy from us on the pitch like as a team they took risks. They played very aggressive and they played very brave. That opened chances for counter attacks for spaces for us because it was a very aggressive and very emotional Tottenham side in the beginning. But like I said too sloppy, not sharp enough to use this aggression.”

Chelsea quickly killed off the game with goals from Thiago Silva and Kante after the break – via a wicked deflection from Eric Dier.

Toni Rudiger completed the scoring late on.
