After a “worrying” Arsenal loss, Thomas Tuchel criticizes Chelsea players and sends a transfer message to the owners.

Thomas Tuchel claims that Chelsea’s ‘worrying’ 4-0 loss to Arsenal in a preseason friendly ‘proves his thesis’ that the team has to make more acquisitions before the transfer window closes.

As a result of goals from Gabriel Jesus, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, and Albert Sambi Lokonga, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal maintained their unblemished preseason record in Florida.

The third and final game of Chelsea’s US trip saw them defeat Club America of Mexico 2-1 and lose to Charlotte FC of the Major League Soccer on penalties.

Although Tuchel witnessed the arrivals of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly at Stamford Bridge this summer, he feels that more reinforcements are badly required before the upcoming season.

“I am not at all at ease,” Tuchel stated following Chelsea’s lopsided loss. “We simply weren’t good enough.” Simply put, we lacked competitiveness.

The alarming issue is that Arsenal showed a much higher degree of physical and mental dedication to this game than did we.

They performed with what I believe to be their best lineup and organizational structure in recent weeks. They tried to start with this lineup for games in the Premier League.

It’s safe to say that this wasn’t our best lineup. This is only a small portion of the explanation; the rest is more concerning. I can’t promise that we’ll be prepared in two weeks.

Regarding the requirement for new hires, Tuchel added: “This game does not change my analysis of the season. Sadly, it served to emphasize my thesis.

“The past week supports my claim.” Without a doubt, I would rather be wrong. I tried everything to disprove my own assumptions, but right now I believe I was correct.

“I look back at the previous season and the games and seasons where we suffered, and then we got sanctioned, guys left us, and some players are attempting to leave us, and this is where it is now,” the player said.

Therefore, a great number of excellent players were requested urgently. We have two excellent players, but we lack this level of competition. Unfortunately, it was visible today.
