Chelsea‘s manager, Thomas Tuchel has inexplicably blamed Chelsea’s loss to Arsenal on the pitch at Stamford Bridge.

After three consecutive Premier League defeats against Crystal Palace, Brighton, and Southampton, the Gunners came to the Bridge with their top-four hopes hanging by a thread.

Mikel Arteta’s team, on the other hand, bounced back with a ruthless display in which they punished Chelsea’s errors to win 4-2 and draw level on points with rivals Tottenham.

Tuchel was enraged, blaming the surface in particular for Eddie Nketiah’s opener, which the Englishman scored after pouncing on an undercut pass from Andreas Christensen.

“To argue that the pitch is difficult to play on here may appear to be an excuse, but it isn’t.”

“It’s not working in our favor.” When Andreas [Christensen] wants to play this ball, the ball bounces quite strangely in front of him.

“However, we made the same mistake against Real Madrid that cost us the Champions League following round, and this one cost us the next match; I can’t recall the last time we scored like this.”

In a thrilling match, the Gunners handed Chelsea their third home defeat in a row.

Tuchel was eager to blame the turf rather than his defender after the game when Eddie Nketiah scored after capitalizing on an error by Andreas Christensen.

“To suggest that the pitch is difficult to play on here may sound like an excuse, but it is a fact,” he told reporters.

“It’s not working in our favor.” When Andreas [Christensen] wants to play this ball, the ball bounces quite strangely in front of him.

“However, we made the same mistake against Real Madrid that cost us the Champions League following round, and this one cost us the next match; I can’t recall the last time we scored like this.”

Chelsea drew level thanks to a deflected effort from Timo Werner, but Arsenal regained the lead thanks to Emile Smith Rowe’s excellent finish.

With another equalizer, Cesar Azpilicueta assured the Blues would head into halftime level.

Just before the hour mark, Nketiah scored his second goal of the game.

Despite not scoring a league goal all season, the 22-year-old was given the nod upfront, and he repaid Mikel Arteta’s faith.

Arsenal is one of the best teams in the Premier League.

Arsenal, who had lost their previous three Premier League games, won the game, thanks to a penalty from Bukayo Saka and a wonderful performance by the team.

Captain Azpilicueta brought Saka down and sent goalkeeper Edouard Mendy the wrong way from the spot.
