“It was a narrow escape win for us, we were just lucky “- says, Thomas Tuchel. Chelsea truly shows they are ready to boost their points in the premier league table, by working hard with a narrow escape to defeats Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
Despite, Conor Gallagher’s first-half red card, Chelsea had to suffer with a less squad of players for the rest of the game.
The former Man City player, currently with Chelsea, Raheem Sterling made it a victory for Chelsea with a 2-1 win, but Harvey Barnes goal in the 68th minute changed the dimension of the game.
Chelsea managed to hold on to the victory, and Blues boss Thomas Tuchel admitted Chelsea were lucky to get all three points.
“We were in total control for the first 20 or 25 minutes,” Tuchel said at full-time.
“We had big chances with Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] and the penalty, which was marginally offside but looked a big strange on our mobile devices.
“Then suddenly you’re one man down and after a corner for us, a good opportunity to score with a set-piece goal.
“We were sloppy again on set-pieces and conceded a counter-attack. It was a bad decision from Conor and it gives you a big disadvantage in these conditions, where we come from a defeat and it’s so hot.
“Unfortunately we conceded a goal which was totally unnecessary, therefore we were under pressure and conceded two big chances. We were lucky not to concede the equaliser.”
