It’s been a worrying start to the season for Chelsea, as the Blues have now lost their last three away matches in all competitions.

Chelsea have been very poor away from home, and have won just once away from home this season.

Speaking after the 1-0 defeat to Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel vowed to find a solution to the team’s problem before the next game.

Tuchel was told that it looked as though his players shrunk after conceding in Zagreb, and the Chelsea boss did not disagree: “If it seems like this, it’s hard to argue against it. You can analyse it like this, of course.

“I need to find a solution for the next match of course.

“We made some changes [for the second half], we encouraged them, we told them to play with more emotion, to play tougher, to step up but it’s obviously hard at the moment for us.

“It’s not enough. It’s nothing to do with worrying, it’s the reality.”
