Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Burnley that Ross Barkley was angry at himself for his missed chance against Burnley.

However, Tuchel believes Barkley had a good game against Burnley.

“Yes, he was not the only one,” Tuchel said at his post-match press conference when asked about Ross Barkley’s missed chance.

“If you watched him in training you would see that he deserved to start. We changed the shape of the front three today and played with a number ten position to get in behind the two number sixes of Burnley.

“It was the perfect position for Ross to start today. He waited a long time and he has made a huge impact in our matches when he came on [from the bench].

“He had a good match. He had the match points on his left foot, when you see him in training, he is maybe even stronger on his left foot in this position.

“Of course, before that we had a huge chance with Callum (Hudson-Odoi) and Thiago Silva. I think if we score a second one then we would score a third and fourth one with no comeback possible.

“He is angry at himself, he created chances and we had chances in the first and second half so no one points fingers at him.”
