Thomas Tuchel: ‘They made us underperform’

Thomas Tuchel gives word on Chelsea being Premier League title favourites

Thomas Tuchel was heavily-critical of Chelsea after seeing them lose their unbeaten start to the season against Manchester City.

The German said: “The approach was very easy, if you want to play at this level, you need everything.

“You need possession, long balls, need to have defending, ball wins in transition. We relied on the last 20 metres and they made us defend deep.

“We could not escape the pressure. It was a question of decision making, vision, individual performance to be so imprecise in our decision making.

“We were not on our highest level. It is as simple as that. You cannot expect a result.

“We played with the mentality that we had something to lose but there was nothing to lose here. It was a good reaction, a lot of risks that we took and I finally had the feeling that this is the mentality that you need from the start. That you take risks and accept risks. That was not the case today, they made us underperform and they deserved to win.”
