English Premier League has resumed in styles after an international break, as West Bromwich Albion trashed Chelsea at the Blues’ home, Stamford Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel’s who took the baton from Frank Lampard as Chelsea’s Manager in January has finally swallowed the bitter pill as West Brom defeated him in 5 goals to 2 loss.
This has therefore launched his unbeaten start as Chelsea manager.
Although Chelsea took the lead in the first half of the game, as Christian Pulisic taps home after free-kick hits post, then everything went quite wrong as Thiago Silva was sent off.
An awful defence from the Blues landed Matheus Pereira an equalising goal for the Baggies and then hands them the lead in dramatic turnaround during first-half stoppage time, Callum Robinson rounds off a lovely flowing move to make it 3-1 after the break, while Mbaye Diagne rounds off a sweeping counter-attack to add a Baggies fourth.
Mason Mount net the second goal for the Blues at 68″ but Robinson finally crushed their hope by landing the Baggies their fifth goal at 91″.
Tuchel in an interview after the match said, “There was nothing so much until the red card came. After that we were unable to cope with the situation. I don’t know why.
“We gave away two very easy goals. What could go wrong went wrong after the red card. We have to accept the big loss. We did big mistakes before the two yellow cards. There were too many easy ball losses. It was impossible for us to accept the situation.
“Every shot was a goal from them. Clearly it was not our day today. We will get the right response. First of all it’s important we digest it. I did not see it coming, now we have to take our responsibilities – me included – and shake it off.”
