Chelsea press conference LIVE: Thomas Tuchel on Jorginho, Werner, Man Utd, Ronaldo and more


Good evening and welcome to live coverage of Thomas Tuchel’s post-match press conference after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues dominated the majority of the contest but were left to rue poor finishing and one rather costly mistake from Jorginho, who did go on to score the equaliser from the penalty spot.

Chelsea controlled the opening period and should’ve been ahead at the interval. Callum Hudson-Odoi had a good chance saved by David de Gea while Antonio Rudiger struck the crossbar with a powerful drive from range.

More of the same was needed in the second half, just with a little more precision in the penalty box. It didn’t come. More chances were missed and the Blues were made to pay when Jorginho miss-controlled a clearance and Jadon Sancho was given the chance to run through and score.

The Italian was given a chance to atone for his error later in the half as Thiago Silva was felled in the penalty area and Anthony Taylor awarded a spot-kick. Jorginho did the nessecary.

Chelsea pushed hard to win the game and the final opportunity fell to Rudiger in added time. Unfortunately for the Blues, he smashed his volley over the crossbar.

Tuchel cut a frustrated figure at full time. We are in position to get his thoughts from the post-match press conference and updates will appear below.
