Thomas Tuchel refuses to laud Lukaku after his brace against Wolves

Tuchel believes it’s not the right moment to praise Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian forward scored a brace against Wolves last night which takes his tally to 14 goals in all competitions.

He put Chelsea in a 2-0 lead but late goals from Francisco Trincao and Conor Coady ended the match in a draw.

Lukaku made a remarkable performance last night but Tuchel refuses to acknowledge that.

He said: “Okay, good performance, but this is for sure not the moment to talk about individual performances and praise individual players.

“We do this as a team and we lost points, crucial points. This is not the moment to praise individuals.”

Thomas Tuchel then went on to explain his side’s crumbling form.

Tuchel added: “We knew about the risks and we need to be disciplined. We showed discipline over most moments of the first half. In situations we touch too much risk.

“We were 2-0 up and against we took too much risk. We invited the counter-attacks and big chances. Once you do this you lose confidence and invite the opponent to smell something is possible when it is unnecessary.”
