Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has blamed himself for Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League defeat to Manchester City.
“I think we lacked a little bit of freshness today,” Tuchel said.
“Kante has been ill for some days and I decided to let him start.
“Jorginho has had some problems and Thiago [Silva] could not start, so maybe today it is on me for not making the best choices in that sense.
“We decided on 3-5-2 but I don’t think it’s a matter of structure against City, it’s about decisions and adapting to the opponent’s spaces.
“We win together and we lose together but I will ask the questions of myself of whether it was the right shape but I’m not sure the shape was decisive in the result.”
