Tuchel Points Out Who Were Responsible For The Arsenal Defeat
Chelsea suffered a shocking 0-1 loss to Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday before the FA Cup final. And the Blues boss was frustrated with how Chelsea couldn’t convert their chances in the first half.
Tuchel equally admits not being happy with the performance and takes responsibility for that.
Thu, speaking to the BBC after Chelsea’s 0-1 loss to Arsenal, the German gaffer said: “The first half was OK, it was enough to lead 3-0 but we were 1-0 down because we forgot to score at the other end and then scored an own goal practically, I don’t know how Arsenal would’ve scored if we didn’t give it to them ourselves.
“We were not sharp enough, not the same energy as usual. We are responsible, I am responsible, we are all in this together so it was not enough to win the game.
“Bit angry that we had so many changes, that’s on me, not so happy in the end with the line-up, but I didn’t know what would happen, I didn’t feel us today like I normally do and we can’t expect to win games if we’re not 100% in games.

“We didn’t have a shot for almost the whole second half, then we had a big one, maybe we deserved this today, we learn something. I’m not happy with what I saw, I have my responsibility because I picked the line-up, but the performance was the performance.”
The Blues have failed to strengthen their hold in the top-4 place and will now have to win their remaining Premier League games to guarantee a top-4 finish at the end of the season.
