It has been a hard few weeks for Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel in the ongoing English Premier League campaign. After leading the league for the first 13 weeks, the Blues from London have lost the way in the English top-flight. Ever since the draw against Manchester United, the team has failed to win the game with the ease they used to. Also, the COVID-19 and injuries have started to haunt the German manager.
Against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Chelsea started the game with high intensity and smoked the fire throughout. However, Bruno Lage’s men grew into the game and even found the back of the net but was ruled out offside. In the first half, Chelsea were unable to find the shot on the target.
In the second half, Chelsea had a golden chance to break the deadlock through Pulisic but it was saved by Jose Sa to save the blushes. The game ended in the draw and Chelsea have just eight from the possible 15 in the last five PL fixtures.
Chelsea vs Wolves: Here is what Thomas Tuchel had to say at the end of the game
Following the poor pattern of games, Thomas Tuchel was unhappy about the performances of the team and but was more concerned about the players who are suffering injuries. He said:
It is very hard for us to understand. We are very concerned about the health of the players."
After a strong start in the first five minutes we struggled to adapt to Wolves' shape. It was a very strong performance in the second half. That it is hard to score goals here, that is clear. To analyse this game in isolation, I am fine with it. I am very happy with how we played in the second half. The points that hurt are the points we lost at home to Burnley, Manchester United and Everton, they are the six points that hurt
Chelsea have a tricky set of games coming ahead in the Premier League as well as in Carabao Cup. The team will play Brentford, Aston Villa, Brighton and Hove Albion and Liverpool in the next two gameweeks.
