Chelsea boss Tuchel blew fuse at Lukaku over workrate

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was seen screaming at Romelu Lukaku during their FA Cup final defeat to Liverpool.

Football.London says the only shot Chelsea’s number nine could muster was a wild shot wide in the first period, in a moment that showed decisiveness he lacked in other moments.

However, it wasn’t his actions within the Liverpool box that drew Tuchel’s ire but a moment on the halfway line when the Blues were not even in possession.

As the Reds built from their backline Lukaku’s position and pressing was judged to be not up to scratch and the German coach exploded around his technical area. The striker’s output did improve from that point.

The statistics do not make for pretty reading, however. A combination of 15 touches, one shot off target and 50% passing accuracy.
