Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have been brilliant over the course of the year.
The Blues have not lost yet under the new boss and Thomas Tuchel has had to leave out a few players so far. It has resulted in the likes of Pulisic missing out, which Thomas knows is unfair.
“Maybe Christian’s problem is I know from Dortmund how strong he is from the bench,” said Tuchel after the clash at Stamford Bridge.
“I think he started only in the cup game and in the end that’s my responsibility and my fault. It’s a bit unfair because I know what an impact he can have in 20 or 30 minutes. He was a bit unlucky in the last games but there’s no lack of trust or quality. He just has to be a bit patient.”
Tuchel also praised Emerson and Tammy Abraham, who were also left out of the squad.
He added: “We also have another guy I would love to mention which is Emerson, who suffers from bad decisions against him from me. He does not play but he is an amazing guy who trains at the highest levels and never lets the team down with his mentality.
“This was a super hard decision today to have him out of the squad and the same with Tammy [Abraham]. It tells us we are a strong group and the guys just have to keep on fighting.”
