Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says it’s not the time to assess the season.
Defeat in the FA Cup final followed the same result in the Carabao Cup.
Tuchel said, “It heavily depends on what we do in the next two games and where we end up. Then I will give you my honest opinion about it. I think we reached now consecutive domestic finally – and we reached the FA Cup final last year – and while I will not promise victories, I will promise that we will deliver, heart, passion, commitment, and living up to the fullest and having no regrets.
“This is what we do and we will not stop doing it. But like I say, they have an awful lot to play for, have everyone available, and they built this team for a long time. They are very, very consistent and we are in the opposite situation at the moment.
“We have the sanctions, players are leaving, and so to arrive in a final like this, to play in a final like this, and of course, I am wearing a Chelsea shirt, but to produce a performance like this – and I’m not saying they did not – I thought we deserved it a bit more maybe given how we arrived. Unfortunately, I have nothing to prove it in my hands.”
