“We changed formation a little bit at half time that should help us have a bit closer of a connection in passing and maybe be a bit more active for high pressing,” said Tuchel.
“But in general it’s not a question of formation, it’s a question of being active and of principles – how to defend and where to defend.
“It is also about individual performance. You have to escape pressure individually, you have to be sharp with your first touch, to escape and switch play. We lacked quality today, individually. It’s as simple as that.
“Also in the belief and in general and the movement, we were too static and it was too fearful.’
Both sides will now turn their attention to the Champions League, with Liverpool set to face Porto in Portugal, while Chelsea will travel to Turin to face Juventus.
