Tuchel reveals what West Ham did against Chelsea

It was a difficult game against West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues had to come from a goal down to win that game.

Chelsea struggled to create chances in the first-half, but the team added more intensity in the second period, and had to fight for a comeback victory, with goals from second-half substitutes Ben Chilwell and Kai Havertz.

Speaking after the game, Thomas Tuchel claimed that the game was tight because West Ham defended deep.

Tuchel said: “It is super tough to score against West Ham, they defend deep and with bodies – the game became more complicated with the goal we gave away.

“It was a huge effort to come back and huge credit to the team, the impact from the bench – full credit to everybody.

“It was not easy to keep the belief, it is hard to attack fluid and create chances against West Ham, nobody plays an open, spectacular match against them.

“We take it now step by step, we will try to use this momentum – things are clear now, we can demand full commitment to everything. We are in the middle of creating this and it is not finished.”
