Chelsea failed to win full points at their own headquarters, Stamford Bridge, when they hosted Manchester United in the 2021/2022 Premier League, Sunday (11/28/2021) night WIB. Even so, Thomas Tuchel remains satisfied with the appearance of his team.
Jadon Sancho and Jorginho each scored one goal in the duel which ended with the score 1-1. It all happened in the second half.
Sancho, who is believed to be the spearhead, managed to take advantage of Chelsea’s back line error by breaking into Edouard Mendy’s goal. Unfortunately, a few minutes after Cristiano Ronaldo was included, Jorginho was able to score a reply through the penalty spot.
“It happens in football, we’ve experienced it twice, the first was against Burnley,” Tuchel said after the game regarding Mendy’s goal.
We dominated from the first minute, were very aggressive, and never stopped attacking,” said Thomas Tuchel again,
If only Rudiger had scored
At 90+7′, Antonio Rudiger should have easily hit the ball into De Gea’s goal. Unfortunately a thousand dear, his kick soared high, even though he was already facing one on one !
What can we do, we have to swallow this result. But what is clear is that the boys played well and I am happy,”
This result keeps Chelsea at the top of the 2021/2022 Premier League standings, one point ahead of Manchester City in second and two points over Liverpool in third.
Thomas Tuchel feels Manchester United can still win the Premier League
Manchester United will enter a new era without Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the sidelines. The Norwegian manager was sacked after a 1-4 defeat to Watford last weekend.
Manchester United reached the Europa League final and finished second in the Premier League last season. Solskjaer then tried to build a team by signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, Solskjaer was unable to maximize this potential and failed to produce positive results this season.
Manchester United will be coached by Ralf Rangnick who was appointed as interim coach. However, Michael Carrick will continue to accompany his team until at least the match against Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday (11/28/2021).
Still have a chance to win
Manchester United are 12 points adrift of Chelsea, but Thomas Tuchel still thinks the Red Devils can be serious challengers in the Premier League this season.
“Yes, but maybe I’m still expecting the Premier League title race,” said Tuchel.
Manchester United is a big club with experienced players.”
Chelsea have not won any of their last seven Premier League games against Manchester United, since 2017.
