Time For Tuchel To Take Tough Decisions At Chelsea
Thomas Tuchel’s serene start as Chelsea manager came to a crashing halt as lowly West Bromwich Albion became the first visiting side to score five goals at Stamford Bridge in 10 years on Saturday.
Thiago Silva’s early red card played a large part in a shocking 5-2 defeat that ended Tuchel’s 14-match unbeaten run since replacing the sacked Frank Lampard in January.
The German coach now has to show he can deal with his first taste of adversity with the west London club.
“It’s a wake-up call. We will get the right response,” said Tuchel.
“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.
