Chelsea boss Tuchel pleased with attitude for victory over Leicester

Tuchel’s men secured three points at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was happy with his players’ attitude for victory over Leicester City.

Tuchel said, “It’s difficult to analyse the team performance tactically when you’re a man down for 65 minutes, that will not make much sense in terms of physical data. But individual behaviour, who protects who, how we compete in challenges, we can always analyse.

“The first 25 minutes was eleven against eleven and we will use it. I think we started very well, but I think we can be more aggressive and be more in the box if we are so dominant like the first 20 minutes. We should be able to create more chances, deliveries and half-chances.

“I felt that we maybe didn’t smell how big the chance was to put the game to bed with one or two goals in the first minutes. Of course, we created a huge chance in transition and we had a penalty and then no penalty.

“There are things to improve but after 25 minutes, it was just necessary survive first of all and then to have our head clear for second half and be ready to sacrifice and wait for the chance to get all three points that we did.”

Chelsea now have 7 points from 4 games and the victory on Saturday was much-needed for Tuchel.
