Thomas Tuchel takes aim at Romelu Lukaku for performance in Chelsea vs Man City

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has, on Saturday afternoon, not been at all shy in taking aim at star hitman Romelu Lukaku, on the back of his side’s defeat to Manchester City.

De Bruyne the difference

Tuchel of course guided his troops back into action a short time ago.

After booking their spot in the finale of the Carabao Cup courtesy of a 2nd-straight win over capital rivals Tottenham in midweek, the Blues turned their attentions back towards matters in the Premier League, in a crunch trip to champions Manchester City.

Chelsea were aware ahead of kick-off at the Etihad that they could scarcely afford a defeat, or risk seeing their title challenge for the season all but ended.

When all was said and done, though, another loss at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s rampant table-toppers is precisely what the visitors were subjected to.

A solitary goal proved all that was needed to guide City to all three points, as a moment of individual brilliance on the part of Kevin De Bruyne 20 minutes from time decided matters in Manchester:

‘Included in this’

In turn, on the back of the action coming to a close on another disappointing afternoon for the club, it has come as little surprise to see a whole host of Chelsea stars singled out for criticism.

It was one in particular, though, who was subjected to the wrath of manager Thomas Tuchel following the full-time whistle on Saturday.

The player in question? Romelu Lukaku.

Speaking to BT Sport post-match, Tuchel showed little restraint in calling his Belgian hitman out over his level of performance, assuring that Lukaku can ‘do much better’:
