Thomas Tuchel clearly states who’s to blame after Chelsea’s shocking Champions League opening day defeat.
Chelsea lost 1 nil to Dinamo Zagreb thanks to Mislav Orsic goal scored in the thirteenth minute of the game.
Thomas Tuchel pointed the finger of blame firmly back at himself following Chelsea’s shock Champions League defeat by Dinamo Zagreb.
Mislav Orsic netted the only goal of the game in the thirteenth minute for the home side as Chelsea kick-started their European campaign with a Group E defeat. Blues boss Tuchel cut a frustrated figure on the touchline in Croatia and even earned himself a yellow card on another tetchy night for the Blues.
Chelsea have now slipped to three away defeats in a row for the first time under Tuchel, with the German coach fully accepting a number of mounting problems are his to fix.
Speaking on BT Sport after the match, Tuchel said:
Well, it’s an underperformance from us. Same story as always. OK start, we don’t finish our half chances to put the game to bed. Then we concede one counter-attack, which is too easy. Then yeah, we lose the match.
Too much to analyse. I’m part of it. We are clearly not where we need to be. It’s on me, on us, we need to find solutions. At the moment everything is missing. It seems like this, it’s hard to argue against it.”
