Chelsea were handed a shock defeat by West Brom this afternoon.
The blues came into this game on the back of keeping consecutive clean sheets at Stamford Bridge and looking at West Brom's form, that was set to continue.
Despite taking the lead through Christian Pulisic, the blues were pegged back after a red card to Thiago Silva which would now flip the game to West Brom's advantage.
The visitors took full advantage and equalized through Matheus Pereira before the same player made it 2-1 just at the start of the second half.
Tuchel will blame himself for two costly decisions and the first one is taking off Hakim Ziyech who needed not he sacrificed for Thiago Silva's red card.
Secondly, taking off Pulisic instead of Jorginho was really a poor decision from the boss as the Italian midfielder seemed so lost in this game.
For such a top class manager he should have known that with 10 men he needed more creativity and thus having Jorginho out would have helped.
This marks the first defeat for Tuchel since he joined the club. Honeymoon over?
