Chelsea boss Tuchel: De Bruyne made difference for Man City

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits Manchester City matchwinner Kevin de Bruyne was the difference for yesterday’s 1-0 defeat.

Chelsea are now 13 points behind City having repeated the result against them back in September at Stamford Bridge.

“We lost due to one individual performance in one situation today,” said Tuchel as he began his analysis, alluding to the quality of the De Bruyne strike.

“In terms of attitude, commitment, defensive-wise I’m happy we did not allow too many big chances. We kept Man City to a minimum of big chances, we kept them to a minimum of really dangerous deliveries.

“We were aware, active and always aggressive and compact in defending. In the first half we had big counter-attacking chances, big offensive transition chances that we really wasted. In the second half we won ball possession so the reaction after the goal was also very good. We had chances, half-chances, deliveries to equalise.”
