“It is too much to analyse, and I am part of it and we are clearly not where we want to be and where we can be, but it is on us to find a solution. I need to find the solutions for the next match of course.”
Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch, on the panel with Cole, believes that Chelsea took Zagreb “far too lightly” and they needed to be more clinical. “He [Tuchel] is trying to bite his lip,” Crouch added. “The first 15 minutes, it was the way they approached the game, they took Zagreb far too lightly.
“They got in positions and were cutting them open, but they were taking liberties at times. That final pass was not there, go and be brave and clinical. Go and kill the game and make it easier for yourselves in the second half. Then, Zagreb go and get a goal and make it so difficult and Chelsea could not break them down. They were too slack in every department but I think there will be stern words there.”
