Thomas Tuchel is hopeful Chelsea can put together another winning streak after seeing his side’s unbeaten run end with a ‘big loss’ to West Bromwich Albion last weekend.
Chelsea’s impressive start under the new head coach was ended in shock circumstances against the struggling side, who took advantage of Thiago Silva’s early red card to seal an emphatic 5-2 win at Stamford Bridge.
The surprise result ended the 14-game unbeaten run in all competitions that followed Tuchel’s arrival, a sequence of results that had seen the west London side concede just two goals.
Chelsea bounced back from the defeat with an impressive 2-0 win at Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, and Tuchel is hopeful his side can ‘start a winning streak again’ ahead of this weekend’s trip to Crystal Palace.
‘It’s my job to learn every day and from every game from every situation we have to face,” Tuchel told his pre-match press conference.
“I don’t have a big conclusion after the two games with the down and up we had in terms of results.
“It’s important to share experiences and make my experiences with the team. It’s the first time we lost, a big loss, an unexpected loss in a weird game.
“We have a lot of positives together so we needed to adapt and react to it. I’m very happy we bounced back immediately. We were unlucky in some situations in the game.
“It’s important for us now that we went through this. Hopefully we can start a winning streak again.”
