“Nobody saw it coming, much more so after going ahead 1-0,” Tuchel remarked following the match. “It was quite uncharacteristic of us, and I’m not sure why.

“However, we ceased defending. We were not sufficiently aware of the threat, were careless in our defense, and were penalized.

“In those ten minutes, they made the most of it. Following their third goal, we had a ten-minute period in which we had big, big chances and missed them.

“They lucked out and were clinical enough to score three goals. We failed to defend in the manner required in the Premier League and were punished.”
