EPL: Tuchel Reveals Why Chelsea Struggled To Get All Three Points Against Watford On Wednesday



Chelsea retain their top spot on the English Premier League 2021-22 table as they defeated Watford 2-1 at the Vicarage Road on Wednesday evening. Goals from Mason Mount and second half substitute Hakim Ziyech gave the Blues all three points against Hornets.

The result of the game didn’t totally reflect what happened in the game as the Blues struggled in most part of the match. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel reveals after the match why his team struggled against Claudio Ranieri’s side.


Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to BBC Sport: “We were lucky. We should admit it. Sometimes you need it. Today we could not reach this level. We were not ready for this game. We are to blame. We never found the right attitude. It was a big exception from the rule.

“We never found the minutes. It got a bit better in the second half. We conceded a lot of chances in first half and did not create much. The two situations we had, we scored. We were very lucky to escape with the win.

“Maybe I didn’t find the right approach. It felt like we were not ready for the long balls, the pressure. When we won the ball, how to escape out of the pressure. We had big problems individually and as a team. We never felt solid. It felt like we were never in control.

“The second half was a bit better. We showed the mentality to do what is necessary. I don’t want to be too harsh but I want to admit Watford played strong.”
