Chelsea lost to Man City in the English Premier League on Saturday afternoon. Thomas Tuchel's men conceded only one goal against Man City at Stamford Bridge. However, Chelsea could have conceded more goals if not for Edouard Mendy. The Senegalese star was in sensational form for Chelsea on Saturday afternoon. Below are some players who were at fault for Chelsea's defeat on Saturday afternoon.
Thomas Tuchel will get a lot of criticism for starting Marcos Alonso instead of Benjamin Chilwell on Saturday. This is because Marcos Alonso was not able to compete with the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Jack Grealish. The Spanish defender was one of the slowest players on the field of play.
2. Romelu Lukaku
The Belgium star was nowhere to be found against Manchester City. This is the main reason why Chelsea did not score any goal against Manchester City on Saturday. The former Inter Milan striker should be dropped to the bench by next week.
3. Timo Werner
Thomas Tuchel should have started Kai Havertz instead of Timo Werner against Manchester City. This is because Timo Werner played poorly throughout the entire match.
4. Thomas Tuchel
The German tactician has made so many good decisions since the start of the current campaign. However, he made a few mistakes against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. For instance, he should not have played the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.
