Chelsea boss Tuchel praises three youngsters for FA Cup win

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel praised three academy youngsters after their FA Cup win at Barnsley.

Tammy Abraham struck the only goal on the night and Tuchel was happy with how he combined with two other academy graduates.

He said, "Clearly he made the difference.

"But with the strike you cannot leave out the pass from Billy Gilmour, you cannot leave out the run from Reece James, so it was a very nice goal where he was at the end of a very good combination.

"But yes, he scores decisive goals in cup games and that is good for him because for the strikers it is most important to score. And of course the stop on the line was crucial at that moment."
