Thomas Tuchel to give tired Chelsea players a break after Brighton draw

  • Tuchel: ‘We need to de-connect…there is no other solution’
  • Graham Potter: ‘We played with courage, heart, quality’

Thomas Tuchel diagnosed a severe case of fatigue among his suddenly struggling Chelsea players after their 1-1 draw at Brighton on Tuesday night and aims to arrest it by giving them two days off before the weekend.

“They need it [Wednesday and Thursday off] so badly,” said Tuchel whose team sit third in the Premier League, 12 points behind the leaders Manchester City and have failed to win any of their past four league games, collecting just two points from a possible 12.

Brighton 1-1 Chelsea: Premier League – as it happened

Adam Webster equalised to earn Brighton a point

4 min: Thiago Silva seems to have strained something. He’s going to try to play on but his movement is the sort that the word ‘gingerly’ is reserved for.

3 min: Lovely interplay by Brighton! Welbeck, with his back to goal at the edge of the D, flicks a beautiful pass to Moder, who has a clear sight of goal from 18 yards. He pulls his low shot wide! Slack finishing, one of the stories of Brighton’s season.

Brighton dent Chelsea’s title hopes as Adam Webster header forces draw

All evening, Thomas Tuchel gave off the energy of a man who was waiting for something to go wrong. He flung his arms in the air, he stood with his hands on his head and at times he simply muttered to himself, his irritation clear as he watched Chelsea’s players take it in turns to offer the initiative to Brighton.

There was no way of fooling Tuchel, even when Hakim Ziyech gave Chelsea a hugely undeserved lead midway through the first half. The German knew better than to expect Brighton to lie down. Potter’s side were the stronger throughout and Chelsea, who are winless in their last four league matches, could have no complaints when Adam Webster cancelled out Ziyech’s goal midway through the first half.

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

James Ward-Prowse enters Beckham territory, time ticks down for Christian Pulisic and Villa Park discovers a new local hero

Expectations were high when Chelsea’s executives shook hands on the £58m deal that brought the much sought-after signature of Christian Pulisic, the man who the club’s director, Marina Granovskaia, hoped would “become an important player for many years to come”. Three years and 95 Chelsea appearances later, the American is yet to match that description and has too rarely given the impression that he might ever do so. At Manchester City he was a non-presence, seeing little of the ball and doing nothing with it when he did. City are about as tough as opponents come but big money demands to be repaid on big occasions. Pulisic has the talent and temperament to deliver in such fixtures – his elegant goal against Liverpool this month was proof of that – but too often he seems content to exist on the periphery of matches rather than bend them to his will. At 23, time is on his side – though the Chelsea hierarchy are not exactly known for their patience. Alex Hess

Joachim Andersen own goal earns Brighton point against Crystal Palace

This fixture always has a habit of leaving things late. With Crystal Palace leading thanks to a brilliant strike from Conor Gallagher - his seventh Premier League goal of the season - a win here for Patrick Vieira’s side seemed on the cards despite their being very much second best for most of the game. Yet having rescued a point against the team they like to beat more than any other earlier in the season, this time it was an own goal from Joachim Andersen three minutes from time that came to Graham Potter’s salvation.

It is now six matches since Brighton beat their bitter rivals, with Potter still to taste victory since taking over in May 2019. But this will at least have felt positive after they had fallen behind to Gallagher’s brilliant team goal with 20 minutes to play having previously been frustrated by an excellent performance from the Palace goalkeeper, Jack Butland.
