Thomas Tuchel rallies Chelsea FC after losing FA Cup final: ‘There is no reason to doubt us’
Homas Tuchel insists there is ‘no reason to doubt’ his Chelsea players after costly back-to-back defeats as they seek to secure a solid finish to a turbulent campaign.
The disheartening loss to 21,000 returning fans came just three days after a side presenting seven changes after an impressive Manchester City win were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal at Stamford Bridge following a Jorginho error.
Tuchel’s men then travel to Aston Villa on the final day of the Premier League campaign before attempting to win the Champions League for just the second time against Manchester City in Porto on May 29.
And the manager insists his team have the resilience to bounce back from recent setbacks and tackle the big challenges that remain after the disappointing first stint in his tenure.
“They are a strong group,” Tuchel said on Chelsea’s official website.
“There is no reason to doubt these players, who were so successful in getting into the top four from 10th place, reaching the FA Cup final and being in the Champions League final. .
“We’re strong enough to handle these situations and these are the challenges we face. It’s not easy, but it’s fun, and there are a lot of teams chasing us and our situation.
