Chelsea boss Tuchel rates his team’s display in Liverpool draw & reveals where needs improvement

“What can we do? We fight for the win,” Thomas Tuchel told BBC Sport after the Liverpool draw.

“We struggled to win the games that can be on our side, today there are no regrets. It was a brilliant match of football. We started very well and were then 2-0 down from individual mistakes that get punished at this level.

“We turned it around, we were close to winning it but it was on the edge and could have gone either way. We continue.

“You can win it anytime if you still believe and I am happy with the attitude and the quality we showed.

“We can still improve, we still struggled because of injuries and changes we had to make but we don’t want to be greedy. I am happy with my team.”

The Blues escaped with a draw after being 2-0 down on 26 minutes.

Seemingly, Man City might be getting away with the Premier League title, but Chelsea have shown that they are still capable to take on the best teams in the league and play their game.
