Tuchel bemoans final third efficiency

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel was unhappy with his team’s lack of finishing skills.

“We had enough chances to score,” he told Match of the Day. “It was an OK game, sometimes it is hard to score. It is not that you get what you wish for and we have to keep on working hard and be more precise in the opponents’ box.

“It was not so nice to play and the pitch is not in good condition – this is a factor. Our timing in the last 20 minutes – we need to be more clinical. We invest a lot against the ball so also we were tired when we arrived in good positions.”

“He is comfortable in high positions and he arrives in the box naturally,” he said. “Normally he has good finishing and normally the chances he had are enough to score. But unfortunately not today.”

Despite dropping points, overall the Blues boss was satisfied with what he saw.

“In general I am happy,” he said. “On a pitch like this against a team like Leeds who put a lot of pressure on you, we created good attacks and generally I am happy with the performance but we want to win. The boys are disappointed which is a good sign.”
