Thomas Tuchel criticised Chelsea’s “huge underperformance”, saying his side lacked “hunger and intensity” as they opened their Champions League campaign with a 1-0 loss at Dinamo Zagreb.


Mislav Orsic’s early goal stunned the 2021 Champions League winners at the Maksimir Stadium, with Tuchel admitting he “didn’t see” the result coming while also lamenting his side’s “lack of determination” as they slumped to their third consecutive away loss.

Chelsea has now conceded at least once in each of their last six games across all competitions, their joint-longest run without a clean sheet since the German took charge in January 2021.

“I didn’t see it coming. Obviously, I was in the wrong movie. I thought that the last game helped us, we showed a reaction against West Ham. Had good training sessions. I thought the team was prepared.

“I didn’t see it coming that’s why I know I’m angry with myself. There is no day off in the next few days, don’t worry. There cannot be a day off at the moment.”

“I just know that I need time to digest it and find solutions. It’s a story of the last games – we start okay. But then we lack precision. We lack the smell of blood. Said the boss Thomas Tuchel.
