Every word irritated Thomas Tuchel said on Zenit vs Chelsea, Reece James, injuries, and more

How disappointed are you Thomas with the result tonight?

“Well, you know, if you coach Chelsea and we concede six goals in two matches…we gave four times the lead away in these two matches.

“My ambition to talk about individual performances is not so high, because nobody can be happy today, and nobody can be happy in West Ham. So it’s absolutely not the moment to talk about individual performances, about whether we are happy or not happy, nobody can be happy.”Information Guide Nigeria

You said after the West Ham defeat it was the details costing your side. That was again the case tonight so are you concerned your players are not listening?

“I remind myself now that you are normally a nice guy and that I don’t take it personally that you make a judgment here that my players are not listening to me, which I don’t find so nice. But it’s your opinion.

“I think we had a very good first 15 minutes and then we stopped doing the things we did in the first 15 minutes. I had the feeling, and it’s my opinion, that when we are in charge when we are the better team, we are forgetting why we are the better team. The investment, the level of concentration, the level of physical investment was higher enough to be the better team.

“Once this drops 5% or 10%, once we start managing results, once we start changing our behaviour based on the score, we get punished at the moment. It happened against West Ham and today.

“The reaction was good and that shows me it’s not about what we can do, because suddenly when we concede a goal, two goals, we can step up and show a reaction. But once we had the lead we give it away again.

“The last six minutes, we start playing balls back, start not attacking with the same aggression and with the same hunger and we got immediately punished. It is for me the level of investment that we have to do no matter what is on the scoresheet.”

You played Reece James in the double six, do you see this as a role for him going forward?

“Of course, but I expect normally N’Golo (Kante), Mateo (Kovacic), Jorgi and Ruben (Loftus-Cheek) to start in midfield and they are all out today so we need to be a bit creative and put Reecey in there.

“We knew about the quality in central midfield and wanted to have some physicality. That’s why he helped us there today but the target is to put him back on the wing. For this, we need players back who can play in central midfield.”

You said after the defeats to Man City and Juventus earlier in the season you and your coaching team had a meeting to discuss the issues. Do you feel another is needed?

“I told you what’s wrong in my opinion. We can have a meeting but we already had a meeting right after the game. My analysis is very clear. Our behaviour changes when we have a lead and this is something we never did and should never do.

“We do the things we want to do on the highest level and we push ourselves until it hurts and it has to hurt. You have to be tired at half-time and fully tired. You have to play through physical pain and raise your level of concentration and overcome adversity. Without all this, if you change your behaviour because of a result, you allow the possibility to be punished.

“If you are unlucky enough like we are at the moment, then it can happen to you. The challenge is to close the door and minimise the possibility. It is very easy, we need a higher level of sprints, a higher level of running, intensity, and concentration level.

“It is the basics and the basics need to be pushed onto a higher level while we are in the lead. It cannot drop just because we are in the lead and this is what is happening right now to us. It’s not the big picture but it is what it is.”

Did Zenit surprise you or did they play how you expected?

“Exactly like this – a lot of quality if you give enough space if you are not closing the space with enough effort. While you attack you can always be hurt by counter-attacks. If you do big mistakes in central positions you get punished by counter attacks because the speed is high, because the quality is high, technical level is incredibly high.

“So you need to do your stuff on the highest level. if you do it you can have a game like the first 15 minutes. If you don’t do it and the feeling that this should be ok, you get punished because the level is too high and this is what happened.”JAMB Result
