Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes Chelsea ‘deserved a draw’ after their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City left them 13 points adrift of first place, but admitted their attack ‘must do better’ Euro Sport report.
The German tactician criticized Romelu Lukaku for the loss after the Belgian missed two clear chances that would have at least salvaged a draw at Etihad.
“He (Lukaku) had many ball losses without any pressure, many ball losses in very promising circumstances. He had a huge chance. We want to serve him, but he is part of the team, and the performance up front, particularly in the first half, we can do much, much better.”
Not long ago, Lukaku and the Chelsea boss recently made amends after the striker appeared unsatisfied with his role at the club after signing in the summer.
But his recent performance in the match gave room for criticism which Tuchel could not hide.
However, it was also Chelsea former player De Bruyne who made the difference scoring in the 70th minute to give Pep Guardiola side a deserved victory.
