Chelsea tried their best to equalize but Allegri's defence was too strong to penetrate. Thomas Tuchel substituted a lot of players who tried to change the game but it was to no avail.
Allegri said-"With all due respect to the champions of Europe, Wojciech Szczesny didn't have a real save to make".
Chelsea played only one shot on target and Allegri saved it, that was why Maximilliano Allegri made such statement. Chelsea's attack is no longer sharp as it was last season, players like Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech no longer create much chances as they did last season.

Thomas Tuchel will really be disappointed with his players, they failed to make wise decisions especially the midfielders. Thomas Tuchel featured over 4 midfielders in the game but they failed to produce a goal. These midfielders are Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley.
Romelu Lukaku have made Chelsea to play in a more rigid way, this entails that capable wingers are needed. This is a time for Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic to prove themselves.
The question now remains, Can Allegri's words of disappointment make Thomas Tuchel to reshape his attack? I think the answer is 'yes'
Hakim Ziyech has failed to prove himself once again, he no longer play vital passes instead he beckons on his dribbles. Thomas Tuchel might find it difficult to start him again.
Chelsea really need to create more chances in order to produce more goals, Werner-Lukaku partnership is also needed.
