It didnt well for Chelsea yesterday night in an away from home game with Brighton Albion as the blues dropped more point and totally find themselves out of the Premier league title race.
The Chelsea side were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton and the blues head coach Thomas Tuchel is furious and says the squad needs more time to rest as the whole squad is seriously tired following a bustling for two or three months.
With one point recover from the Amex stadium and sit joint top with Liverpool on 44 pionts with 2 games in hand, Chelesa are winless in four premier league games now with 3 draw and a loss as they botched out the opportunity to go above their rivals Liverpool in second position.
After the match Tuchel was asked about his woeful performance, He replied: “This has been answered hundreds of times, by flipping through the squad with long term injuries with covid19 cases and looking at our schedule week in week out you will have the answers to the questions.”
“The whole squad is really tired both me tally and physically and this shows really in the team performance, we really need to take a time off and re-energize ourself to connect back to where we belong.
“We don’t have much to say, and that’s how I feel about the game. The players will have two days off before returning on Friday and Saturday to prepare for the game on Sunday. The squad was in desperate need of these two days off, and I’m sure you’ll say it’s an excuse.
Brighton did not have any features before our features against Man City game to the Carling Cup encounter in between. We haven’t played this style since late November 2021, and they had more days to prepare, but we are a team that loves to play and play constantly.”

With stringe of covid19 cases in their team which brief the delay of there matches and this will add more strain for the Chelsea side in front of the london derby.
Tuchel concede he isn’t disasspointed with his players execution at Brighton yet trust it’s an intense outing to Brighton.
He said: “The opponent privacy needs to be respected, it’s a difficult game to play at Brighton. The atmosphere at the final whistle shows we’ve lost the game but we didn’t at all.
“Unless you are ready for action without sluggishness, most groups will struggle to get a point here. There are claims, but must not be capped down by the situation, because of our goals.
“We fought really hard to show forth our strength and ability by capturing a special moment of goal at halftime, but we get punished from the game after getting nearer to ending the game.”Don’t you know the most people are aware of the reasons for this game and expects to see a better Result than weeks begoa lot from the team.
