FA Cup: What I told my players after 6-5 shootout defeat to Liverpool – Chelsea boss, Tuchel
After Chelsea's sad 6-5 penalty shootout loss to Liverpool in the FA Cup final on Saturday, Thomas Tuchel claimed that he informed his players how pleased he was of them.
Despite both teams coming close to scoring, the game ended goalless at half time, with Marcos Alonso and Christian Pulisic wasting clear chances for Chelsea and Luis Diaz and Andy Robertson almost scoring for Liverpool.
Cesar Azpilicueta and Mason Mount both missed penalty kicks, but Kostas Tsimikas scored the game-winning penalty.
After Azpilicueta's shot struck the post, Sadio Mane had a chance to win the trophy for Liverpool, but his Senegal teammate Edouard Mendy denied him.
“Like in the last final, in the Carabao Cup, it’s no regrets. I told the team I’m proud,” Tuchel told BBC.
“We were sure that we would be competitive and make life very difficult for Liverpool. We did it again.
“We got to 0-0 against maybe the best-attacking team in the world and we also created a lot of chances.
“We deserved it, as they deserved it as well, but again we lose on penalties.
“We are very disappointed of course. We are sad but at the same time proud.”
