Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, who was banned from the dugout today and watched from a hospitality area, : “It was a good view, a lot of support around me and I have the experience now so there’s no need for a repetition.”
On Conor Gallagher being sent off for two bookable offences in the opening 28 minutes: “You can’t make the [second] challenge if you have a yellow card after 20 or 25 minutes. The challenge was a clear yellow card and gave us a huge disadvantage. There was no reason to make this decision [from Gallagher].”
On the form of Thiago Silva: “It suited him. He likes sitting deep and defending the box – he’s maybe one of the best in the world to defend in the box. We played a back five in the second half to not get caught.”
