Thomas Tuchel’s brutal admission in furious rant after 4-0 Arsenal hammering

Thomas Tuchel has made a brutal admission in a rant after his side let four in to Arsenal in a preseason friendly.

Chelsea played London rivals Arsenal in the Blues' final game of their preseason tour which capped off an underwhelming three games. Mikel Arteta's side were 2-0 up at halftime thanks to goals from new boy Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard with the Gunners doubling their lea thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka and Albert Sambi Lokonga in the second half as the North London side ran rampant in front of just under 64,000 fans in Orlando.

Heading into the match, Tuchel's men had just lost to MLS side Charlotte FC after beating Mexican side Club America in Las Vegas. The German didn't hold back as he slammed his side ahead of the new season starting.

He made the brutal admission that he doesn't know whether his side will be ready in time for the start of the season. Tuchel told the Daily Mail when asked if his side will be up to speed for the start of the season: "I cannot guarantee. [There was] a level of mental commitment that we lacked because we have a lot of players who are thinking about leaving and looking at their options."

He also said that players wanting to leave has affected preparations with his side unable to win consecutive games during preseason. He told the Mail: "We got sanctioned and players left us."

He added: "We know that some players are trying to leave us and this is where it is."
