What Thomas Tuchel did when he confronted Andre Marriner after Arsenal's defeat.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was a dissapointed man after his team lost to Arsenal last night.

The German was frustrated with his side’s display, his own selection choices, and the decisions of the referee, Andre Marriner.

“We lost the game, it’s totally our responsibility,” Tuchel told Sky Sports after the game.

“We had huge chances and we made an own goal more or less, a total gift. We were not sharp enough, we couldn’t have the same intensity and energy as usual.

“It’s on me, I think there were too many changes from the last match and I take full responsibility for that. Maybe this is the last wake-up call for all of us.”

The Blues did have chances against Arsenal, who scored from just one of their two shots on target they created.

In the opening period, Kai Havertz wasted a clear-cut chance over the crossbar while Kurt Zouma and Olivier Giroud both struck the crossbar in the dying minutes.

The Blues also had three penalty claims rejected – and not even reviewed by VAR. The clearest of which came in the opening period when a goalbound Mason Mount shot struck the arm of Rob Holding.

Tuchel didn’t fixate on the verdicts that went against his side, although he did highlight the occurrence above in his post-match press conference.

“Maybe we should have [been given] a penalty for handball in front of the line to save a clear goal,” he said. “It was not even checked.”

The German was possibly more annoyed by the decision than he let on when speaking to the press after the loss.


His interaction with Marriner – after he had concluded his broadcast media duties absolutely suggested as much.

As Tuchel was about to head down the Stamford Bridge tunnel, the referee appeared and there was a brief dialogue between the two.

Through a number of rather desperate gesticulations, Tuchel’s point was clear to those few left inside Stamford Bridge: Chelsea should have been given a spot-kick for a handball by Holding.

The defeat to Arsenal was not the perfect warm-up for this Saturday’s FA Cup final against Leicester City. Tuchel assuredly had half an eye on that game; it’s why he opted to name Kepa Arrizabalga in goal last night to give him some game rhythm ahead of the final.

Tuchel said:
“He starts the cup final and we thought it was a good idea to give him the game before. We trust him and he deserves it, that is the basis why we put him in the line-up.

“He deserves it. He is so close and good in training. We wanted to give him some minutes and to take both games together. It was an unlucky night for him as well.”
