Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, and it was a game where Chelsea were on the back foot for long spells.

City bossed possession, had the most chances and had more intensity.

Speaking after the game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admitted City deserved to win and he couldn’t point out the exact cause of his side’s poor play. Tuchel however hinted that his side played without belief.

“We changed formation a little bit at half time that should help us have a bit closer of a connection in passing and maybe be a bit more active for high pressing,” said the Chelsea manager.

“But in general it’s not a question of formation, it’s a question of being active and of principles – how to defend and where to defend.

“It is also about individual performance. You have to escape pressure individually, you have to be sharp with your first touch, to escape and switch play. We lacked quality today, individually. It’s as simple as that.

“Also in the belief and in general and the movement, we were too static and it was too fearful.”
