Tuchel names Chelsea player responsible for 1-0 loss to Arsenal

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, criticized Jorginho’s wayward back pass that led to Arsenal’s winning goal on Wednesday night.

The midfielder’s pass ran past goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, creeping into the open net.

While Kepa kept the ball out, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang laid the pass for Emile Smith Rowe for a simple tap-in.

Tuchel was left angry with the “total gift” handed to the Gunners.

“It’s totally our fault, nobody elses. I think we lost the game. It’s totally our responsibility. We had huge changes, we made an own goal more or less. A total gift.

“But overall we were not sharp enough. We could not put the same energy in as usual,” the German told a press conference after the game.

 

When asked whether Jorginho should have passed it wide of the post, he responded: “The rule is pass the ball to the right foot of Kepa. This is the rule.

“No matter if it’s in the goal or sideways, pass it to Kepa.”
