(Video) Agitated Thomas Tuchel blasts match officials following Chelsea’s draw with Brighton

Posted by

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was not happy following his sides 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion, and openly questioned the match officials. 

Romelu Lukaku’s first half header was cancelled out by one of substitute Danny Welbeck’s own headers in the final few minutes of the game, with the referee playing his part in some controversial decisions going both ways.

However, Tuchel chose to highlight the decision not to award a penalty when Christian Pulisic was brought down in the area and the decision to not allow play to carry on after Mason Mount fouled a Brighton defender and then passed the ball into an empty net.

The German manager who led Chelsea to the Champions League last season was clearly agitated by the decision making during the game, and chose to highlight it in his post match press conference.

The result and other results elsewhere mean Chelsea are now eight points behind Manchester City in the title race.

  1. Arsenal lost 2 Man utd with Maguire pulling down Tomiyasu in the box without VAR review. Odegaard’s tackle on Fred was reviewed. The world wasn’t against them. Chelsea won a depleted Arsenal team after 5 attempts with 5 1st team players out. The world wasn’t against them Leeds played Arsenal with 8 youngsters on their bench, the world wasn’t against them. Why is the world always against Chelsea? Is Chelsea another 2pac Shakur? My verdict, only an incompetent Workman quarrels with his tools.
