Tuchel commented on the win over Barnsley

The Chelsea head coach spoke about the tactical changes that led to the success.

The Londoners barely beat Barnsley in the FA Cup. German specialist Thomas Tuchel summed up the victory. According to the coach, the team had to change tactics during the match.

“We switched to the four defenders. Removed Marcos Alonso due to this change. Christensen left the field with a headache. After the changes, it became easier for us to overcome the first line of defense.

We played well in the opening of the second half. We constantly played in the opponent’s half of the field.

When we scored, I got the feeling that they started taking more risks. We were inferior on some points. We lacked more courage, we went too deep.

We can clearly play better. Of course, I expected more, but don’t think that I am upset.

In the absence of rhythm and confidence, it is not easy to prove yourself in such a field against an opponent who is playing the match of life. I don’t want to be too hard on the players.

A match with Sheffield? A physically strong team, we will need a lot of effort. It’s good that we play at home “, – explained the coach.
