Tuchel fears home form holding us back

Thomas Tuchel feels our recent disappointing home league defeats offered prime examples of where his Chelsea team need to improve if we are to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title in the future.

Our last two league fixtures at Stamford Bridge have both ended in losses for the Blues, against Brentford and Arsenal, while Liverpool and Man City have recorded further victories at their home stadiums to leave us 14 points behind the top two in the table, albeit with games in hand over both the sides above us, including today’s visit of West Ham United

Going into the next home game, our head coach believes we need to start making the Bridge an impossible place for opponents to come and pick up points if we are to close the gap between ourselves and the top of the Premier League table, believing we have the desire and talent to compete for the title again.

‘We tried hard,’ said Tuchel. ‘I would say that I tried everything and I would say that everybody in the building tried everything and the players as well. There is room for improvement and the gap is big but we are competing with maybe the two most successful teams that ever played in this league, so the stakes are high.
