Thomas Tuchel reveals the three mistakes he made during Chelsea’s disappointing Man City defeat

After the full-time whistle, Tuchel identified three decisions that he made before the game that may have turned out to be the wrong choices, citing his team selection as the main reason for the bitterly disappointing defeat.

“NG [N’golo Kante] ill since some days and I decided to let him start, Jorginho had some problems, Thiago (Silva) could not start maybe this is on me, not the very best choices.”

The German coach garnered considerable criticism from large sections of the media for his defensive approach, opting to field five defenders whilst Kante and Jorginho were joined by Mateo Kovacic in a flat midfield three.

Tuchel will be hoping to get back to winning ways this week as his side travel to Turin to face Juventus in the Champions League group stage.

The Blues won their opening European fixture, defeating Russian outfit Zenit Saint Petersburg 1-0 thanks to a goal from club-record signing Romelu Lukaku.
