According to Ian Wright, Thomas Tuchel made a mistake in Chelsea team selection against Leicester City. Yuri Tillemans’ magical strike was the difference between the two teams in the FA Cup final at Wembley last Saturday, The Blues missed a piece of silverware.
Tuchel made five changes for Chelsea, which were defeated by Arsenal on Wednesday night, Marcos Alonso, Antonio Rudiger, N'Golo kante, Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner are all in the team. Reece James is one of six players to maintain his position, but his role is slightly different in Tuchel's preferred 3-4-2-1 formation.
The England international is not a right back, but the bottom three tied with Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva. This means that Captain Cesar Azpilicueta plays right back.
Although James cope very well with Jamie Vardy, limiting the chances of the Leicester striker to half.
Wright believes that the Blues lack attacking thrust with the Defender playing out of position. Wright said on the BBC sports.
To me, it was a mistake from Tuchel, I could have played James in the [guard] position on the right because I think they lost that motivation. Before kick-off, Tuchel explained his team selection.
We are disappointed. He told BT Sport that I made a decision, but the team's performance was not as sharp as usual. This is my responsibility, we are a little angry with ourselves. Well, everyone is fully awake and we are ready.
