Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has accused Newcastle United of time-wasting during Chelsea’s 3-0 victory on Saturday afternoon.

Tuchel spent much of the first half tapping his watch as Newcastle tried to slow the game down and frustrate Chelsea.

Tuchel said: “There were many interruptions in the game and they were delaying the game.

“If you are the team relied on for the intensity it is not easy.

“We relied on a good structure.

“We worked on counter-pressing because then you can increase the risk around the box and we relied on the counter-pressing to protect us from counter-attacks.

“This was good in the first half, then we brought more bodies to the box and increased the risk in the second half.”
