“We were the better team and deserved to win” – Thomas Tuchel insists he is ‘fine’ with Chelsea performance during 1-1 draw against Leicester

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel believes his side deservedly beat Leicester City after a 1-1 draw with the Foxes on May 19.

The Blues were the dominant side throughout the Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge, creating a number of chances throughout the game. They conceded the opening goal early on from James Maddison, who made a superb effort past Edouard Mendy in the sixth minute of the first half.

Tuchel’s men dominated from there and found an equalizer in the 34th minute when Marcos Alonso headed home the home side from close range.

Chelsea really should have taken all three points, especially when Christian Pulisic was given a golden opportunity in the second half with the opening goal. Americans cannot take advantage and squander a glorious opportunity.

Tuchel commented on the 1-1 draw, where he stated that his team should really walk out of the game as the winners.

He told reporters (via Football London):

“We were the better team and deserved to win. We didn’t allow any chances, punished by a shot from just outside the box. We created enough to win, didn’t give. transitions and chances for Leicester. So I’m fine with the performance.”

It’s a slightly broken record: we didn’t win what we deserved. “

Chelsea have now confirmed third place in the Premier League. They host Watford on the last day of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur will have to beat Norwich City while occupying a large proportion of 14 goals to be able to usurp the Blues. This seems impossible and therefore, Chelsea can safely finish in third place.

The story of Chelsea’s season has been a constant lack of end product coupled with underperformance in the back line. Their UEFA Champions League collapse to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals can certainly be attributed to that.

The mistakes in the first leg of Edouard Mendy and Antonio Rudiger made the Blues catch up the game. They will be the dominant team in the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu but lack the firepower to take the game past Real Madrid.

Their league form has also declined as a result, with draws against the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brighton & Hove Albion missed.

Romelu Lukaku became the club’s most expensive player last summer, following a £97.8m transfer. He has been a complete disappointment, unable to repeat his scoring heights during his time at Inter Milan. The Belgian has only scored 8 goals in 26 appearances.

Kai Havertz’s performance has improved, with the German attacking midfielder being used as a No. 9. He has seven goals in 28 Premier League games but the problem lies with Tuchel, when he has to kick. with an attacking midfielder in such a role.

There are still questions about underperformance at Stamford Bridge and after tonight’s game there is definitely room for improvement.
