Tuchel Finally reveals why His 3-5-2 Formation Selection was In Defeat Against Manchester City

Thomas Tuchel tried something new with the 3-5-2 against Manchester City but it didn’t work out as hoped.

Speaking to chelseafc.com, Tuchel said: “I think we lacked a little bit of freshness today. Kante has been ill for some days and I decided to let him start

Jorginho has had some problems and Thiago could not start, so maybe today it is on me for not making the best choices in that sense.

We decided on 3-5-2 but I don’t think it’s a matter of structure against City, it’s about decisions and adapting to the opponent’s spaces.”

We win together and we lose together but I will ask the questions of myself of whether it was the right shape but I’m not sure the shape was decisive in the result.”

The Blues have managed to rotate quite decently so far this season and Tuchel has proven that he gets it right more often than not.
