However, Tuchel decided to focus on Chelsea losing two points at home without saying much about the striker’s performance.
Good performance but not the time – Tuchel on Lukaku goals against Wolves
In Tuchel’s post-match press conference as covered by Football London, the Chelsea manager only admitted that Lukaku had a ‘good performance’ and surprisingly moved on.
The German tactician simply said it was not the time to talk about individual performances because of the dropped points.
Tuchel said: “Yeah, but guys. Good performance but for sure not the moment to talk about individual performances. We lost points.
“It’s not about dropping too much, it’s about where we were losing the ball and the opponent taking a crazy approach.
“Big chances that we don’t create, the pass is missing, the dribbling is wrong. At some point we played like we were 2-0 down not 2-0 up.
“We tried to change the structure, I don’t know if that was the right decision from me, I need to watch it back.
Tuchel says Todd Boehly’s takeover does not affect Chelsea players
“I don’t think ownership is a reason for lack of focus. We showed when the situation began that we can still focus. I would not consider this as advantage for Leeds,” Tuchel said.
“It does not change much for us as the sanctions are not lifted. It’s not worth thinking about, we have our own stuff to solve and make better.”
Chelsea remain 3rd on the log with 67 points, but just four points ahead of Arsenal who have a game in hand against Leeds United.
The Blues have won just one of their last five Premier League matches, losing to Arsenal and Everton and drawing at Manchester United.
