‘Awful decision’ – These Chelsea fans slam Tuchel for starting star who ‘constantly makes mistakes’ in Champions League final vs Man City

Posted by

Thomas Tuchel has made two changes to the Chelsea side that lost to Aston Villa on the final day of the Premier League season ahead of tonight’s massive Champions League final against Manchester City.

Chelsea fans will be delighted to see that hero N’Golo Kante is back for the all-important clash after a little injury scare, with the Frenchman replacing Mateo Kovacic in midfield.

Tuchel’s only other change sees Kai Havertz brought into the starting lineup for Christian Pulisic, the German star has looked much better in the final third of the season after a nervy start to life in London.

The Blues look to be sticking with the 3-4-3/5-2-3 formation that has helped them turn around their season under Tuchel’s tutelage, with Reece James and Ben Chilwell out at wing-back.

Here is how some of the Blues faithful have reacted to Tuchel’s teamsheet:

It appears as though the main concern from a large section of Chelsea fans is Tuchel’s decision to start Jorginho, as the ace has struggled in big games in the past and importantly doesn’t really have the legs to contend with the tireless creative midfielders like Kevin de Bruyne and Bernardo Silva.

It’s a massive call from Tuchel, one which appears to leave him facing the sole blame should things go wrong tonight, but it’s worth noting that the Blues are already considerable underdogs for the tie.

Chelsea will battle against a very attacking side from Pep Guardiola as they look to get their hands on club football’s most prestigious honour and leave City on the wrong side of a massive upset.

  1. As a fan, I was so fascinated about the performance of my solid, collosal and extraordinary Chelsea FC. All the strategies put in place really worked out well.

    Kante, Havertz, Mount, Azpi, Rüdiger Christensen, “always an active Mendy, etc all gave good accounts of themsekves. Excellent!
