Tuchel admits his team are battling to snap their current form.
Chelsea are going through a tough phase in Premier League and boss Tuchel admits home form costing them.
Tuchel admits his team are battling to snap their current form slump ahead of facing Liverpool.
Chelsea’s recent home form has been poor at Stamford Bridge, with one win in five league matches. It has proved costly and would otherwise have placed his side in a much more favourable position at the turn of the calendar year.
Tuchel said, “We had three games at home now where we conceded late equalisers after dominating all the statistics, with clearly better chances but we are purely unlucky.
“It’s a matter of six points that we lose because you have three draws instead of three wins so it obviously hurts us because with six points more we would have a completely different feeling around New Year’s Eve.
“We have the feeling that we invest a lot and squeeze the lemon but it’s like squeezing the same lemon over and over again but expecting there always to be fresh juice coming out.
“It’s hard because we’re so ambitious but this is not the first time in my career, and for sure not the first time in the players’ careers, to have days like this where things feel a bit more heavy.
“When we are in upset mode like this, it’s sometimes good to make the focus a bit wider and look at the bigger picture, remember what we did in the year 2021 and accept that we are still going in the right direction.”
