Chelsea had no right to win today’s match against Brentford, and Thomas Tuchel knows it.
The Blues boss gave an in depth and honest interview – as he tends to do – after the match, and he admitted that his team were lucky to have got past an organised and spirited Beeds side.
He spoke for almost 6 minutes with Sky, and while his outlook is always positive, he will know better than anyone that this team is just not functioning well in attack.
It was a funny game with a lot of players missing today, but drastic improvements are needed.
You can see the manager speaking in the clip embedded here:
🗣 "The last 20 minutes was suddenly a cup game. Respect to Brentford."
🗣 "Today we needed a bit of luck, but I'm happy with the energy – I can recognise us."
