Low rates Chelsea performance and reveals how Tuchel stayed in touch

Chelsea men’s first team coach Low, who was deputising media duties in Tuchel’s absence, started with his verdict on the win and where the Blues can improve.

‘We worked very hard, but we missed a little bit of freedom and rhythm,’ said Low.

‘We started a little bit nervously and didn’t do the easy things. We fought hard to find a solution on the pitch, but we didn’t find it easy.

‘To get to the final of this competition is very important for the club. We have never won it and that’s why the players felt the pressure, but they did very well to not concede and we had opportunities to score a second goal.’
