Thomas Tuchel talks about Saul’s nightmare Chelsea debut

Thomas Tuchel on Saul's Chelsea debut nightmare: 'Some big mistakes ...'

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has offered his opinion on the difficult debut that new signing Saul Niguez endured on Saturday night.

Big rom in double

Of course, Tuchel’s men were back in Premier League action just under 24 hours ago.

In their first outing at the back of the international break, the Blues welcomed Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge, aiming to rebound from a stalemate with Liverpool last time out.

And when all was said and done in West London, getting back on track is precisely what Chelsea accomplished.

Despite Villa holding his own, and even creating a number of presentable opportunities, the European champions simply proved too strong, en route to an eventual final score of 3-0.

Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring in the capital, his first goal at Stamford Bridge, against Man of the Match Mateo Kovacic at the start of the second half.

And there was even time for Lukaku to add some sparkle to the scoreboard later, whipping home a wonderful finish from the edge of the box to guide Chelsea to the top of the English top flight.


However, in the middle of a good day for pensioners, a concern arose on the staff front for Tuchel and company.

This was not due to an injury, but to the performance of Saúl Niguez.

Spanish international Saúl was, of course, a late arrival at Stamford Bridge, after Atlético de Madrid agreed to cultivate underperforming midfield talent on loan for the 2021/22 campaign.

However, if his first outing in the Chelsea colors is something to go through, then Saul is staying a bit off the pace required for a regular Premier League player in the middle of the park.

The 26-year-old made his debut early on against Villa, but was finally hooked in just 45 minutes, after continually giving up possession in dangerous areas of the field.

In turn, speaking after the crash, it was a little surprise when Thomas Tuchel was drawn in by the first appearance of the latest addition to his squad.

And the German was not shy in admitting that Saúl mainly “ fought ”, although taking full responsibility for the situation:

‘I had the feeling that he struggled. There were some major mistakes, passing errors and he struggled with intensity. You can see that it is not fully adapted.

It is completely my responsibility. I had a feeling that he could jump for us and play at that level. I [then] I thought maybe it was better to change it, but it doesn’t change anything. [about how I see him].

Tuchel continued:

‘It is very hard. You can do it or not do it. I told you before that it was my responsibility if it didn’t work out in your life. He struggled a bit, created some half chances for Aston Villa. ”
