Thomas Tuchel expressed some remarks on yesterday’s win,

“I said to the team before not to over-expect things from ourselves in the situation. Do a serious performance, take the little details, but don’t over-expect.

The first-half was ok. In the second half, there was a chance for Christian (Pulisic) that we didn’t take, and then we lost control, concentration, and momentum. And there were many, many minutes to suffer.”

Further, he also explained the mistakes his side did, “We allowed two big chances and we were lucky to escape with a clean sheet.

There are of course many situations that explain that, and this is okay after 14 matches. So in the end, big, big compliments to the players; and well done.”
