Jody Morris slams Thomas Tuchel’s decision in 1-1 draw against Manchester United

Former Chelsea assistant manager Jody Morris has questioned Thomas Tuchel for not making his substitutes earlier during the 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

Despite dominanting the game against Manchester United and the Blues failing to score the winner, Tuchel waited until the 78th minute to introduce Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic from the bench.

Morris told Stadium Astro: “From a fan’s perspective, I would definitely have liked a couple if not all three changes at the top end of the pitch a lot earlier.

“I just felt that with the amount of dominance Chelsea had they wasn’t creating enough real good chances.

“The fact you have the level of bench that Chelsea had, there was no reason why at least two of them could have been brought on a lot earlier.

“I thought Lukaku was the perfect addition but that’s without knowing the physical capabilities he has right now. He might not have had more than the manager gave him.

“It’s always easier to say after the game but we were slightly surprised that Tuchel didn’t make changes earlier.”
