Chelsea missed out on going five points clear of West Ham after our goalless draw against Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel blamed the pitch at Elland Road and Chelsea not being clinical in the box as the reason for our failure to get all three points against Leeds United.

“We had enough chances to score. It was an OK game, sometimes it is hard to score,” Tuchel said after the game.

“It was not so nice to play and the pitch is not in good condition – this is a factor. Our timing in the last 20 minutes – we need to be more clinical. We invest a lot against the ball so also we were tired when we arrived in good positions.

“It is super hard to play the pitch. Very slippery and bouncy. We had a couple of chances to go 1-0 ahead but they trouble you and pressure you. You need to make a goal for belief. Sometimes it is like this. I don’t want to be too harsh.

“As long as we have chances and touches in the box and don’t concede too many chances the results will be there. We need to accept this.”
