On Sunday, May 1st, 2022, Chelsa FC lost their fourth consecutive game at Goodison Park. Tuchel Thomas did not attribute his team’s inability to penetrate the host defense to a lack of sleep caused by fireworks set off at their hotel the night before the game.
He also claimed Everton players got away with a number of heavy tackles that his men were subjected to throughout the Premier League match. Tuchel was questioned about why he didn’t play Romelu Lukaku when his team needed a goal badly.
Chelsea was not in a safe position for a top-four slot, according to the German, and are not in a safe position for a Champions League spot either.
