Why Mason mount was angry with Timo Werner as Thomas Tuchel discovers undroppable player



Timo Werner

Thomas Tuchel has had an excellent run since he replaced Frank Lampard but the last two results have been very poor in regards to the performance his side put in.

Chelsea were sloppy against Arsenal in midweek and even worse on Saturday in the cup final when they could have played until Christmas and not scored, if you pardon the cliché.

Tuchel has got major problem with his team selection against Arsenal and something just didn’t seem right against Leicester either.

Chelsea leading scorer in the competition in Tammy Abraham didn’t even make the squad, while Reece James was superb as a right centre half it meant Chelsea desperately lacked an outlet down the right side.

Ben Chilwell offered more in 20 minutes than Marcos Alonso did in the previous 70, while Timo Werner again came up short when Chelsea needed him the most.

On top of all that, Chelsea players looked tired. Perhaps considering their relentless schedule they have had since January, this was their 27th game played under Tuchel since he arrived at the end of that month.

Mason Mount tailed off badly after half time, so did N’Golo Kante who is also carrying an achilles injury, Thiago Silva can’t play two games in quick succession, Werner also gassed pretty quickly on Saturday.

Tuchel said after the game: “We are disappointed and not angry with our performance from the boys. I think the performance is enough to win it.

“I think today we were unlucky and we’ve never hidden that we need to have that to win at this level. You need momentum, decision making, little details, the referee.”

“I think we defended well, counter-pressed well, and didn’t allow counter-attacks by one of the best counter-attacking sides in Europe.

“Our decision making in the first half was too hectic, we tried to force the solution. We created two against two and three against three situations that were more promising than we made of it.

“We had a big chance with Azpi and in the second half we controlled the game. We conceded a goal from nothing. It’s a fantastic goal and a lucky goal. We had a chance from Mason, an offside goal that was very close. We were unlucky today.”
