Thomas Tuchel blames travel schedule for 3 – 0 loss to Leeds

Thomas Tuchel blames travel schedule for 3 – 0 loss to Leeds

Following the humiliating 3 – 0 loss to Leeds United, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has attributed the lacklustre display partly to travel arrangements.

The Blues have picked up just four points from a possible nine since the start of the 2022/23 Premier League campaign and struggled throughout the match.

Edouard Mendy gave away the ball comically for Leeds United’s first and Kalidou Koulibaly was sent off late in the match for a second bookable offence to compound the London club’s misery.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the match, the German tactician stated:

‘Everything that can go wrong, did go wrong,’ he told BBC Sport.

‘It started yesterday. We had no plane to arrive so we came on the bus. The players could fly but for the coaching staff it was a long ride on the bus. It continued today.

‘We lost the game in the first 20 minutes, where we were clearly better and had huge chances. A lot of touches in the box but we miss the target and do not take what we deserve.

We then stopped doing what we were doing good and it was even for 15 minutes and in those we gave two presents.’
