Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to BT Sport: "I think we started not sharp enough. The first 12 to 15 minutes we could have harmed them much more. There was so much space for dangerous balls into the box and ask more questions.

"We struggled to create our own rhythm and intensity because they were so deep and passive. We were lacking runs. We were so good in training yesterday and not good enough, not free enough today. I don't know why.

"I felt we were a bit slow and tired, mentally slow, decision making. That's why it's a strange one to analyse."


Chelsea will hope to bounce back in their next English Premier League game against Southampton at Stamford Bridge to avoid losing three games on the run.
