Thomas Tuchel gives Honest assessment of Chelsea’s defeat to Arsenal



Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel says Chelsea only have themselves to blame following their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. 

Chelsea were punished for their mistakes in front of goal, and as well as a defensive howler caused by Jorginho which allowed Emile Smith Rowe to score from close range in the 16th minute to seal a 1-0 win for Arsenal.

Thomas Tuchel made several changes to his side that beat Manchester City, but somehow failed at the office which saw Arsenal do the league double over their London rivals.

What Thomas Tuchel said on the defeat
“It is totally our fault, nobody else’s,” Tuchel said to Sky Sports post-match. “We lost the game, it is totally our responsibility.

“We had huge chances. We made more or less an own goal a total gift. Overall we were not sharp enough, we could not put up the same intensity as usual.

“Maybe it was too many changes from last match, and I take full responsibility for that. Maybe it is the last wake-up call for all of us.

“I felt it a little bit coming in training yesterday and I am a bit unlucky that it is proven today on the pitch.

“We had three days, we had a good run and were in a good mood, but the choices were not so good on my side for the line-up so this is on me. We were unlucky but we did everything today to lose.

“I’m not happy with my line-up, I should not have done it like this.”
