Thomas Tuchel reveals why Kai Havertz couldn’t start against Man City

Why Kai Havertz didn't start Chelsea's meeting with Manchester City

What was said about Havertz and his exclusion

Chelsea were unable to continue their strong start to the season when Manchester City crashed into Stamford Bridge and stole all three points in a 1-0 win that saw the Blues as boss. Thomas Tuchel leaves German international Kai Havertz on the bench until the last 30 minutes.

Tuchel’s men only managed five shots in 90 minutes, and the German midfielder’s absence was painfully felt on a team that lacked the creativity to truly threaten City that day.

By mentioning that Havertz failed to make it to Matchday XI, Tuchel justified it given the nature of his opponent and his decision to go with three central midfielders while Timo Werner teamed up with Romelu Lukaku up front;

“Scam [Werner] it fits well because it brings a lot of intensity on and off the ball. This is what we need, maybe Kai [Havertz] and Hakim [Ziyech] Lacks a bit of form, confidence and that is why we opted for the mixture of Timo with the speed and intensity of the ball ”.

A decision that backfired

With N’Golo Kanté, Jorginho and Mateo Kovačić all on Matchday XI, the prospect of knocking out City’s trio of midfielders Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Rodri did not turn out as Tuchel had hoped.

City created three times as many chances as Tuchel’s men, and while they held the Citizens to a single goal, the glaring lack of creativity in the center of the park with two area-to-area midfielders and a deeper grip option hardly threatened. .

It seems unlikely that Tuchel will resort to this deployment again, as Chelsea must get back on track if they want to bounce back in the league quickly.
