One Mistake Thomas Tuchel Is Repeating In Matches That Might Affect The Team Performance
On Saturday, West Ham United defeated Chelsea by a score of 3:2 at the London Stadium, in the team's 15th match of the season. Chelsea always finds it difficult to win when they play against West Ham United, and this is especially true when the Blues are playing away from home.
Despite the fact that Thomas Tuchel and his teammates would have done better in the match, the Manager made a move that negatively impacted the team's overall performance.
Mason Mount's well put corner kick found its way to Thiago Silva in the 29th minute of the game, giving the visitors the lead. Manuel Lanzini scored a penalty for the home team after Edouard Mendy was unable to control a back bass thrown his way by Jorginho. Lanzini's goal was the first of his career. The West Ham United striker was fouled by the goalie within the 18-yard penalty box.
In the second half, Chelsea's Mason Mount scored with a powerful shot after a ball from Hakim Ziyech found him open in the box. To bring the contest to a close, Jarrod Bowen and Arthur Masaku each scored a second and third goal for the home team at London Stadium, bringing the final score to 3:2.
If Manchester City is able to defeat Watford at Vicarage Road Stadium, Chelsea could lose their grip on first place in the Premier League.
The Manager made a decision that has an impact on the team's performance in each and every competition. The team's strikers were unable to participate due to injury. During their UEFA Champions League match against Malmö, both of them got injuries that required treatment.
Both strikers have fully recovered, but he has not been able to participate in any matches. The players will be brought in during the second half, and they will not be able to score a goal during that time. A team's ability to rely on powerful and seasoned strikers such as Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner is a significant advantage.
It is terrible strategy to rest both strikers and instead use a midfielder to perform the role of a striker. These midfielders are squandering numerous opportunities that should have been taken advantage of by a striker.
The Manager must address this oversight if he want to convert 85 percent of his goal-scoring opportunities during matches.
