Chelsea manager Tuchel annoyed with top-four race - 'Nervier than it needed to be'

Thomas Tuchel has admitted Chelsea have set themselves up for a nervy finish to the Premier League season.

The Blues are just one point ahead of fourth-placed Arsenal and five points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Tuchel's side have won just once in their last five outings, and the German is not happy with how things stand.

"It's nervier than it needed to be, of course," Tuchel told the club's website.

"We have made things more and more difficult for ourselves, and it's quite a lot to overcome to be ready for Leeds.

"It's not the first time we have conceded such a late goal, especially in home matches, but we have to deal with it. We have to digest it. We have to overcome it, even if that feels very difficult at the moment."
