Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed what he told the players in the dressing room after the 5-2 defeat to West Brom on Saturday afternoon.

Prior to Saturday’s defeat to West Brom, Chelsea had conceded just twice in 14 games under Tuchel.

Asked whether he lost his cool in the dressing room and what he told the players, Tuchel replied: “No, we cannot after 14 or 15 matches lose our head now and we cannot take away the trust we have in these players.

“But it was the moment after the game to be honest but to be calm and to breathe and to tell everybody to breathe.

“It will be a hard afternoon for everybody I think, a hard evening.

“We were the first to start this matchday and we had completely different plans for how to start this matchday.

“So we have to accept it now, it’s our first loss together and it’s important to find a way to deal with it together. And everybody knows that I feel as a part of it.

“So there were some quick words to calm everybody down and to delay the talks until tomorrow, because now is too emotional, now is too much frustration. It’s not productive enough.”
