The Blues have played one of the best matches so far against Brentford that saw them win with a 1-0 aggregate though they struggled a lot. Tuchel started his team with Eduardo Mendy at the goal post, Trevor Chalobah, Andreas Christensen, Malang Sarr, Cesar azpilicueta and Ben Chilwell in the back line, Mateo Kovacic, Ngolo Kante and Reuben Loftus Cheek in the middle line and Romeru Lukaku plus Timo Werner in the attacking line.Though the team emerged victorious in this match, the team in the second half showed a lot of struggles that saw the hosts dangerously attack them though the efforts ended with no positive results.
Here are the two tactical mistakes that Tuchel made which could have costed him.
1. Starting the unexperienced backline.
Malang Sarr and Trevor Chalobah have not adapted in the English Premier League and the talented Brentford players had it all that they could use to defeat them.
2. Playing the game without an attacking midfielder
Tuchel played with Kante, Kovacic, and Loftus Cheek who are all defensive and central midfielders. They had no attacking threats.
