Youri Tielemans’ sensational goal midway through the second half helped Leicester City beat Chelsea 1-0 in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Explaining why Chelsea lost to Leicester City, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said: “We are disappointed and not angry with our performance from the boys.

“I think the performance is enough to win it. I think today we were unlucky and we’ve never hidden that we need to have that to win at this level. You need momentum, decision making, little details, the referee.

“I think we defended well, counter-pressed well, didn’t allow counter-attacks by one of the best counter-attacking sides in Europe.

“Our decision making in the first half was too hectic, we tried to force the solution. We created two against two and three against three situations that were more promising than we made of it.

“We had a big chance with Azpilicueta and in the second half we controlled the game. We conceded a goal from nothing. It’s a fantastic goal and a lucky goal. We have a chance from Mason, an offside goal that was very close. We were unlucky today.”

    Absolutely nothing makes the difference between Tuchel and Lampard if Chelsea fail to lift a trophy at the end of this season. Because, Lampard was only able to lift Chelsea from around 10th position on the PL table and qualified Chelsea for the Champions League and this despite the uncertainties might be Tuchel’s achievement at the end of this season too.
