The first goal is the key
Joe Cole on BT Sport: Tuchel changed things at the end of the first half last Wednesday, and if I removed the foul, he was good in the game in the second half – they created chances. There is a lot to be positive about. The first goal is crucial. From Chelsea’s point of view, the first goal should not come in the first half. If they reach the level in half the time, it still isn’t. It’s the Champions League and we’ve seen matches come back from worse than this.
