Thomas Tuchel slams lack of execution and discipline as Chelsea capitulate against Wolves

Thomas Tuchel was left furious with his team’s performance as the Blues squandered a two-goal lead in a dramatic 2-2 capitulation against Wolves.

Todd Boehly, who had just agreed a £4.25billion deal to buy Chelsea, was in attendance as the Blues extended their winless run to three games. 

Romelu Lukaku scored his first Premier League goals of 2022 as his brace gave the hosts a healthy advantage heading into the final stage of the match. However, Wolves bagged two goals of their own in the final 10 minutes to steal a point at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel was asked about Lukaku's potential turnaround in form, but the German was in no mood for talking about individual performances.

The Blues manager said: "Yeah but guys, okay, good performance but this is for sure not the moment to talk about individual performances and praise individual players.

"We do this as a team and we lost points, crucial points. This is not the moment to praise individuals."

Lukaku, who cost Chelsea a record-breaking £98million last summer, took his goal tally to 14 for the season.

However, his contributions were not enough to seal the win, as late efforts from Francisco Trincao and Conor Coady earned Wolves a dramatic point.

"At some point we played like we were 2-0 down not 2-0 up," said Tuchel.

"I don't think we were too deep, I think it was the opposite, and then we tried to respond to it and change the structure.

"So I don't know if that was the right decision from me, I need to watch it again.

"But in general it's a lack of execution, of discipline and execution of the match plan throughout the whole half. If you get punished for it, if it's fair or not it's not worth discussing."

Chelsea remain third in the table, but their latest run has allowed Arsenal to go within four points.

The Blues will be looking to return to winning ways on Wednesday when they take on Leeds away at Elland Road.
