Why Chelsea Are Struggling To Score Goals - Tuchel

By Ibrahim Taiwo, The Nigerian Voice Sports

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed the reason behind the team's lack of cutting edge lately.

The Blues put in a dominant display against Manchester United with 22 attempts without scoring.

Their only goal of the game was from the spot by Jorginho.

Tuchel believes the defensive workload on the forwards is affecting their conversion.

"I think they (forwards) try hard. Their contribution to our style of game, to the high pressing, is immense," Tuchel told reporters ahead of Wednesday's Premier League trip to Watford.

"We should maybe take into account that when they arrive with the chances, they don't arrive fully relaxed. Maybe that costs us a bit of precision sometimes, but we scored many goals before.

"We trust them, they have the quality to score for us. It is on us to bring them in positions where it's possible for them to score and to do this as often as possible."

Chelsea are back in Premier League action against Watford on Wednesday night.
