Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admitted after the 1-0 defeat to Arsenal that he regrets making too many changes to the line-up.

Tuchel told Sky Sports: “Totally our fault, nobody else’s. We lost, it’s totally our responsibilty. We had huge chances. We made an own goal more or less – total gift.

“Overall we were not sharp enough. We couldn’t put out the same intensity and energy as usual.

“It was maybe too many changes from the last match and I take full responsibility for that. Maybe it’s the last wake-up call for all of us.

“I felt it a little bit coming in training and I’m a bit unlucky that it’s proven today on the pitch. I regret… we could have, we could have, we could have but we didn’t.

“We had three days. We’re on a good run, good mood. The choices were not so good from my side for the line-up. This is on me. We were unlucky. We can lose in football. We did everything today to lose.

“I’m not happy with my line-up. There were too many changes and I shouldn’t have done it like this. It was something in particular but I don’t want to tell you.

“We had some good results so we have to cope with a loss.”
