Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has launched a stinging attack on his players following Sunday’s loss to Everton.
Chelsea were beaten at Goodison Park 1-0 and Tuchel had some choice words for his team when speaking to the media afterwards.
Richarlison scored the only goal of the game for Frank Lampard’s Everton side. The Brazilian capitalised on a mistake from Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta just after half-time to open the scoring.
Jordan Pickford was forced into a number of fine saves to keep Everton in front. The Toffees could easily have added to their lead at the other end but lacked composure at the vital moments.
Tuchel insists his team are struggling to put in back-to-back performances. And he says a lot has to change from what has been seen in the last four matches.
Tuchel told Sky Sports: “We hate to lose, we are responsible for it, it was our responsibility in Old Trafford to not have more. We struggle to have consecutive clean sheets and top performances and that is why we lost today.
“We have to be without mistakes, disciplined in your positions and don’t make mistakes. When you have that much possession, we did not play our best match but we were in control, and then we gave a goal away and it kills the game for us because it is everything the opponent wants. It is a huge pattern in our season.’’
