“We could have had much more if we played was better timing, better precision. It’s simply like this,” Tuchel said, as per Chelsea’s official website.
“In the first half in the opponent’s half we had eight or nine transition chances and out of them we did not have one-touch in the box. That’s what I’m critical about.
“That you miss chances is no problem. Everybody wants to score from every big chance and of course, you don’t get a lot in top games. For efficiency, you need a bit of luck and composure but we could have had much more chances.”
“The ball losses were too early and were too poor, and decision-making and timing was not on the level that you need in this kind of level of football match.”
It was a game of fine margins, although City always looked like the more dangerous side.
The Blues managed only 1 shot on target the entire game, and 4 shots overall, something that Tuchel will have to address in training.
