Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has admitted he made a mistake during their 2-1 win over the French side, Lille in the Champions League on Wednesday..




The German said he got his tactics wrong during the first half of the encounter and it nearly cost the Blues their quarter-final berth.

Chelsea made it to the last-eight of the competition after a 4-1 aggregate win against the Ligue 1 side, ending the game 4-1 on aggregate, having taken a 2-0 lead in the first leg.

Their lead was halved when Burak Yılmaz scored before half-time.


But Christian Pulisic scored on the stroke of half-time to calm their nerves before captain Cesar Azpilicueta made it two in the second half.


“The tactics weren’t right in the first 20 minutes, I take responsibility. Then it was more fluid,” Tuchel told reporters after the game.

‘It was very important to calm everyone down. We were lucky with the post.

‘We hope and expect to carry on. We want to compete. It took a lot of sacrifices, we fought hard to be in the last eight.
