Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel launches stinging attack on players after Everton defeat

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.

“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.

“If we try to get away with okay we lose games. We struggle with concentration and determination levels and you see that in the last four matches.”

Pickford was the star man for the hosts and was thankful for the support his team got. He told BBC Sport: “I am a very passionate person and it means the world to us to get the result today. Our character and team spirit drove us on today and with the fans behind us like they were it was incredible.

“Now is about today, we will enjoy it but come next week we will focused on the next games. I worked hard all week.

“It is rewarding when you make the saves to help the team out as they help you out as well. It is a team effort and that was my job.”

Everton remain 18th in the table but have closed the gap on Leeds and Burnley to two points with a game in hand. Chelsea still look set to finish the season in third spot, as they currently sit five points clear of London rivals Tottenham in fourth.
