Some managers are so concerned about how their team plays that they prefer to lose playing well than win playing poorly.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits while he wants him team to play good football always, he prefers to win lucky than lose underserved because it’s easier to improve when you win.

Tuchel said: “We try to create performance and for that you have to be clear to each player what performance is – what I need to do, what the manager expects from me and why, what the team expects from me as a player and how we play together as a group.

“In the end, it’s like an orchestra so we have to follow a certain rhythm, discipline, speed and style. This has to be clear to everybody.

“There will be matches where we win and we will be absolutely unhappy so we will show the team why we are unhappy and why we are just lucky to win the game.

“But if you ask me if I prefer to win lucky or to lose undeserved then I go for a lucky win of course because with a win it’s always easier to improve.”
