In their Champions League match on Wednesday evening, Chelsea were defeated 1-0 by Juventus.
Blues manager Thomas Tuchel has reflected on his team’s lackluster performance in Turin, claiming that the reason for their sluggishness is unknown to him.
“I felt we were a bit slow and tired, mentally slow in our decision making,” the German was quoted as saying. That’s why it’s a difficult one to decipher. We were great in training yesterday, but not good enough or free enough today. I’m not sure why, but the entire team was involved. “”At this level, you can’t give up such an easy goal in the first seconds of the second half. When you know what’s coming and have defensive organization like we do, you can usually defend yourself. As a result, we were punished. “”We should have been a lot more focused. More questions should have been asked. ”
