“It was nice to watch for the spectators” – Thomas Tuchel delighted with his teams performance despite lapses

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has responded after his side required penalties to send Southampton out of the Carabao Cup.

It was the second match in a row in the League Cup where his team had got to penalties to go through to the next round, and it was the second game in a row against Premier League opposition.

Tuchel put out a very second-string starting lineup last night, but he says that was partially due to injuries, with N’Golo Kante, Andreas Christensen, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, and Romelu Lukaku all being on the injury list.

But for me, I think there were numerous poor distinctive performances from some of the fringe guys last night, and Chelsea toiled to maintain possession.

However, Thomas Tuchel has stayed away from any critique and says he was very delighted with the feat last night.


The game was decisive and end to end, I’ll give him that!

As reported by Sports Illustrated, Thomas Tuchel said:

“It was an intense match of football, nice to watch for the spectators. It was an open fight, an intense match. We did a good shootout, a lot of quality. Kepa saved one, it was a miss too.

“There were a lot of changes. Unfortunately yesterday we lost Azpi with an injury, Andreas told us he could not play because he had tooth surgery and then Ruben.

“We missed three players that maybe would have started. I liked the energy today, it was a good game.”
