EPL: Lampard’s assistant criticizes Tuchel’s decision in 1-1 draw with Man Utd


Jody Morris, who was Frank Lampard’s assistant coach at Chelsea, has criticized Thomas Tuchel for his in-game management against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Blues fought back from a goal down to hold United to a 1-1 draw in the Premier League.

Jadon Sancho took advantage on a poor touch from Jorginho to run clear and score his first league goal to give Michael Carrick’s side the lead on Sunday.

However, Jorginho made amends from the penalty spot, after Thiago Silva was brought down inside the box by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Chelsea continued to dominate after drawing level but Tuchel waited until the 78th minute to bring on Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic.

Morris believes Tuchel could have made his substitutions earlier and killed the game off.

He told Stadium Astro: “From a fan’s perspective, I would definitely have liked a couple if not all three changes at the top end of the pitch a lot earlier.

“I just felt that with the amount of dominance Chelsea had they weren’t creating enough real good chances.

“The fact you have the level of bench that Chelsea had, there was no reason why at least two of them could have been brought on a lot earlier.

“It’s always easier to say after the game but we were slightly surprised that Tuchel didn’t make changes earlier.”
