Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed Thomas Tuchel’s reaction to Chelsea’s poor first half in our 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
According to Azpilicueta, Tuchel was unhappy with Chelsea’s first-half performance and the players were humble enough to accept his criticism.
“He [Tuchel] was not happy, we were not happy with our performance,” the Chelsea captain told Sky Sports.
“Even though we were able to arrive around the box we did not shoot on target, they created a few chances where we could have conceded.
“Even in duels we were not as good as we usually are. We were sometimes too open and it was something that we had to address.
“Playing like this, we couldn’t expect to win the game. The best thing we could do was to arrive at half-time at 0-0.
“The reaction was good, everyone is humble enough to accept this and go again and give a strong second half.”
