Tuchel takes a point, praises defensive effort and demands more final-third precision

Tuchel considered how to get the best out of his forward players

‘It will always be a team effort to attack and a team effort to defend. We have to admit we put a lot of pressure high up the pitch, our strikers never stop working or counter-pressing. Do they always arrive in the freshest moment? No, they don’t, of course not against an opponent like Leeds.

‘Still, I believe we have enough quality to use the chances and counter-attacks better to create more and be more clinical. This is my responsibility, but we could have won this game by one or two goals and we would talk totally differently about it.’

Mendy made a couple of superb saves

‘I was very happy with the clean sheet and it was a combination of good goalkeeping and good defending. I thought we could always be in danger because of the pitch, it was difficult to play on and very slippery with a lot of bounces.

‘But we were there to block everything and Mendy was there to save us on a couple of occasions with good saves. It was a good performance from Edou and he gives us confidence.

‘We are happy with the clean sheet but the boys are disappointed in the dressing room that we didn’t a win, which is a good sign to see from my players.’
