Tuchel channels ‘inner Jurgen Klopp’ with laughable excuse for Man Utd goal

Thomas Tuchel has channelled his 'inner Jurgen Klopp' according to fans after he made a laughable excuse for Manchester United's goal on Sunday.

United had taken the lead against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge as Jadon Sancho took advantage of a poor first touch by Jorginho to go through on goal and slot past Edouard Mendy.

The Italian had tried to control a clearance on the halfway line as it dropped out the air but his touch went straight to Sancho who went on to score his first Premier League goal.

Jorginho atoned for his error by pulling the Blues level from the penalty spot.

Following the match, Tuchel was asked about the mistake and said: “He misjudged the situation and he was heavily disturbed from the lights so did not see the ball in the end. It happens.”

This led to a host of fans on social media mocking the Chelsea boss and comparing him to his fellow German, Jurgen Klopp.

The Liverpool gaffer infamously once blamed the wind for his side not winning a match earlier in his tenure.

One fan wrote: Imagine if Klopp said that he could clearly see the ball as it was a decent touch but Rashford and Sancho were already onto him. The mistake he made was trying to take it down in the first place instead of clearing it.”

Another added: “Moving like Klopp, this is tragic.”

Meanwhile, a third supporter tweeted: “The lights, wow, Carrick has rattled Tuchel…”

Despite the draw with United, Chelsea remain top of the Premier League on 30 points after 13 matches, leading champions Manchester City by a point.

Tuchel's side face two London derbies in the next six days as they travel to Watford on Wednesday before visiting West Ham United next Saturday lunchtime.
