Chelsea Superstar Booed After Defeat To Arsenal

Chelsea defeat to Arsenal yesterday is their third consecutive home losses having conceded 11 goals in those 3. It's also the second time the Blues had lost to the gunners this season. Arsenal seem better off with Chelsea. Arguably, the Blues give Arsenal a lifeline anytime they fall below perking order.

Despite their 4-2 defeat yesterday, one Chelsea player that has come into the limelight is Romelu Lukaku. Unquestionably, Lukaku's return to the Stamford Bridge has often been described as a nightmare as the Belgian continue to underperform. The striker after the huge price tag has registered only 12 goals in 38 appearances across all competitions.

During the match, Lukaku struggled upfront which made Tuchel substitute him after the hour mark with Kai Harvertz replacinghim. Boos could be heard from the Chelsea fans as Romelu came off the pitch. When asked about the infamous incident, Thomas Tuchel replied, "Maybe it was the Arsenal fans." When the reporter insisted that the jeering came from the home fans, the 48-year-old replied: "Ok, you heard it, so you need to ask the people."

Thomas Tuchel Criticizes Chelsea Players After Defeat To Arsenal

Tuchel could not hide his frustrations last night following his sides ill-performed display that led to their defeat to the Gunners. During a post match interview, Tuchel pointed out key mistakes that his side made. For instance, the first and last goals conceded came from errors from Christensen and Azplicueta respectively. They lost intensity, pace, and momentum in the second half and they paid dearly for it. Frustrated Tuchel echoed these words, "Look at the penalty, and it is an unbelievable goal from our ball possession. There are no tactics behind that. We have three ball losses in 10 seconds. Then we do a foul where there's not even the slightest danger. We foul a person, it is a penalty, and we rob ourselves of six minutes for an equaliser. What is there to analyse? There's nothing to analyse. When asked if his side lacked concentration, Tuchel replied:"It must be something, but it is also possible to don't do it because we proved it in the last three matches, and we thought we learned our lesson from Brentford and Real Madrid but obviously not".
