Tuchel explains how Chelsea dismantled Juventus

by | Nov 23, 2021 22:56

Thomas Tuchel hailed Chelsea for an ‘amazing performance’ to crush Juventus 4-0 in the Champions League. ‘You need to penetrate with runs off the ball.’

The Bianconeri had already booked their place in the Round of 16, but this was a head-to-head for the top of the group, which in theory should provide an easier draw in the knockouts.

Unlike the 1-0 defeat in Turin, Chelsea dominated from start to finish and ran riot with goals from Trevor Chalobah, Reece James, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner.

Champions League | Chelsea 4-0 Juventus: Bianconeri get the blues

“We wanted to stay patient but at the same time not fall asleep. We wanted to increase the rhythm and intensity. It’s so tough to create and score but we created so much. An amazing performance and a fantastic result,” Tuchel told BT Sport.

The Champions League winning manager was asked what had changed so much from only a few weeks ago?

“We were sharper than in Turin, we took more risks, something we lacked in Turin. By control you cannot hurt them – you need to penetrate with runs off the ball. We were very good and scored nice goals.

“I feel very aware that we do the invisible work and when we have to defend we really defend and dig in.”

N’Golo Kante went off injured in the first half, followed after the break by Ben Chilwell, who seemed to sprain his knee.

“Ben has a sharp pain in the knee. N’Golo twisted his knee a little bit. They will both be examined tomorrow. They are very sad things because N’Golo was very good before he went off and Chilly has been in a fantastic moment.”

    Just do not coach Juve in the future as they like geriatric football. The old lady looking like the old granny nowadays.

    Because Juve are poor – saved a few hundred words

    I am Juve fan and I am laughing so hard when I read about the result. So predictable.

    We poor this time around Max you cant manage Average players unless ur hand work will surely spoil ….ask for players greed management

    They was tactically set up wrong. Who ever sets up to defend a whole match these days. Football has evolved and Allegri is one of the last of a dying breed (thankfully)

  6. Shane

    What do you expect with a team of highly paid average players. Not the managers fault as unfortunately this is their level. It is Agnelli & co’s fault.

  7. Allegri man

    If only the anti allegri people have some decent look at the team before critisizing the man. Not a single player was playing well last night. All playing rubbish.

    Forza Allegri all the way

  8. Adi

    Fooking useless last night shud have kept pirlo that allegri is a old fart I’ve been a juve fan since 1982

  9. Marco

    Starting with Morata, Bentancur and Sandro is like playing 8vs11..

    Juve need to send players to goran pandev academy to learn something….pandev is helping to give football a bigger stage.

    Funny how all the Sarri out and Pirlo out crowd are vehemently calling for patience with Allegri. The man has always been an imposter. You can blame the players and they should shoulder responsibility. Guess what Sarri and Pirlo had the same bunch but this style of play has taken it to new depths of mediocrity. Look at Conte over at Spurs. They will not break into the top 4 but there is at least a reaction. Allegri sets up the team differently every week and the motivation is zero. Rabiot is already on holiday and Bentancur is still suffering from his usual morning hangover.
