Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is known for his fearless approach but one wonders what happened in the defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.
Truth be told Chelsea made Manchester City look too good due to our cautious approach against Pep Guardiola’s team.
From the first minute Chelsea sat deep, inviting Manchester City to attack and allowing them to have the ball. This isn’t an approach expected from the European champions and this isn’t the approach Tuchel used to beat Manchester City three times consecutively.
We only saw the fearless Chelsea we know after Gabriel Jesus goal for Manchester City as the Blues reverted to 3-4-3 and started pressing City higher up the pitch.
The Chelsea we saw after Manchester City’s goal was the Chelsea we all expected to see at Stamford Bridge from the first minute. Why did we have to wait until we conceded?
Tuchel missed a chance against Manchester City by being too cautious and we expect him to learn from this.
