This time he use a simple plan and tactics to win the match.

You can see from the above statistics that Manchester City controlled the game. Chelsea were having more midfielders but they couldn't control the game which shows that the five midfielders tuchel played didn't help the team. They were only two strikers in front so they were not able to do the proper pressing. This made Manchester City start passing from the back to find more spaces to control the game. Chelsea was not to play a shot on target they played about 5shots and none of them was on target. This shows how poor Thomas Tuchel plan and tactics were.
