Former Premier League striker Alan Shearer has hailed Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel for exploiting Manchester City’s high line in the 1-0 FA Cup victory over Manchester City on Saturday.

According to Shearer, Tuchel’s tactics to exploit Manchester City’s high line worked to perfection.

Shearer said: “Chelsea definitely deserved the win. Their system stopped Man City playing and when they played against that high line, it worked to perfection.

“That’s why Werner was in the team today – Tuchel knew City would struggle with that high line.

“It’s good going (14 clean sheets in 19 games). They looked strong in the middle, Man City didn’t really create anything at all.

“Because of Chelsea’s resilience, they weren’t bothered about City passing the ball around in front of them. City will be really disappointed with the way they played.”
