Thomas Tuchel spoke at a press conference after the Chelsea fell to Arsenal 2-4. Arteta’s team stormed the blues fort, who made serious mistakes in defense. That’s what the German coach spoke about, recognizing the following: “We thought we had learned the lesson from the games against Brentford and Real Madrid, but obviously not”.
loss evaluation: “Totally wild and open game in the first half. It was already 2-2 at the break. It is impossible to give away the first goal in consecutive games but we do it. It is the level of errors, the number of errors, it is impossible at this level We’re doing them right now and we can’t win football games like this.”
Rüdiger and his absence: “It’s not about individualities. We need to get the tactics right, it’s doubtful if I got it right, and you need the right team selection. It’s doubtful I got it right. It’s impossible to win games if you make mistakes like this. I’ve seen it in several consecutive games.
Christensen’s change at 45′: “He said he couldn’t continue. He had some problems. It’s a very, very difficult course (Stamford Bridge). It’s not in our favour. The ball bounces awkwardly.”
Analysis: “There is nothing to analyse. We think we learned our lessons from Brentford and Real Madrid, but obviously that is not the case.”
Azpilicueta’s confrontation with the fans: “I’ve seen it. Honestly, I can understand the fan.”
