Chelsea may have produced a dominant performance in the game against Leicester City, but Blues boss Thomas Tuchel wasn’t entirely pleased with his team’s performance.

Chelsea missed so many chances to extend the lead and the Blues were 2-0 up at half-time.

For Tuchel, he has said that his team must learn to finish off chances as quickly as possible so as not to give room for the opponents to come back into the game.

Tuchel listed technical things, decision making and converting chances as the three things the team must improve on, despite the 3-0 win at the King Power.

“We could have finished the game with a third one earlier,” he said. “There are still things to improve, technical things, decision making and conversion from our chances. But it was a good performance and we needed it, to get a deserved win and a clean sheet and we did deserve it.

“I think we played a good game, a good away game, we have an excellent result so it’s a good mix, we created a lot of chances and half-chances, were a bit unlucky with the offside decisions, but I’m happy we created and never stopped creating and that was the key.

“You have to decide the game when it’s possible to decide. I thought we could be more precise, we could be more clinical in the last third in the first half because we played with such effort, we had such good ball recoveries high up the pitch, we were good in finding the spaces with the ball.

“Of course we all know that a third goal would have decided the match pretty sure. With a two-goal lead you are pretty comfortable but you can never be completely comfortable. One goal, one set-piece, one deflected shot can change the whole momentum and suddenly you struggle when it’s not necessary.

“I am happy but there’s always room for improvement. The players know very well when they do a good match and they did a good match today. It is a team effort and it was a huge effort that we put into attacking and defending, and I’m happy that the team got the win they deserved.”
