The Blues was tipped favorite to win the match but failed to penetrate Manchester United’s strong defense. Micheal Carrick’s decision to bench Cristiano Ronaldo and use Bruno Fernandez as a false nine paid off. Manchester United was able to offset Chelsea attacks.
But Chelsea could have won the game with their impressive performance in the second half. Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel made two mistakes during the match.
1. Late Substitution
Chelsea coach, Thomas Tuchel delayed the substitution until the 75 minutes of the game before he introduced Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic in the match. There was an immediate impact of the substitution. Chelsea intensify pressure on Manchester United’s strong defense wall immediately Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic were introduced in the match. Also, Romelu Lukaku substitution was delayed till 80 minutes.
Thomas Tuchel shouldn’t have delayed the substitution till the dying minutes of the game.
2. Starting Werner Over Pulisic
Thomas Tuchel shouldn’t have introduced Timo Werner in the starting lineup. He should have stuck to the starting lineup used against Leicester City. Chelsea had many attempts but it seems there was no striker on the pitch. Chelsea had about 22 attempts in the match but there wasn’t a good converter on the pitch.
