Chelsea managed just one shot on target despite dominating possession seeing 73 percent of the ball. Romelu Lukaku fired wide with the only chance created by the visitors.

Managers Reaction

Thomas Tuchel: “I think we started not sharp enough. We struggled to create our own rhythm and intensity because they were so deep and passive. We were lacking runs. We were so good in training yesterday and not good enough, not free enough today. I don’t know why.”

Massimiliano Allegri said: “Sailors always find the way out of a storm. Tonight was a good game against the European champions,” he added. “Technically we could have played better but we suffered a bit and we missed a couple of counter-attacks. Two games, six points, zero goals conceded, another step towards a qualification, a good step forward.”
