Chelsea manager Tuchel takes responsibility for tactical mistake against Madrid

Real Madrid edged past Tuchel’s side in the first leg encounter of the Champions League quarterfinal.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has taken responsibility for allowing Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior plenty of space to run at home.

Vinicius destroyed Chelsea’s back three in the first half as Real secured a 3-1 victory.

Asked if he had make a mistake playing Andreas Christensen in a three and leaving space down the left against Vinicius Junior, Chelsea head replied: “Yes, it is my mistake.”

He added: “If we have the same talk five days ago, we will still speak about the same defensive performance. In five days, it is seven goals conceded and we didn’t change anything: not from the approach, line ups, or the system.

“I don’t think there’s a deeper reason for it. It is alarming. In two games, seven goals, but nothing has changed.”

The Blues have now conceded seven goals in their last two matches, and the Italian has no clue about this.
