Tuchel frustrated with Werner after Chelsea striker misses another 'big one'

Thomas Tuchel was frustrated with Timo Werner's miss in the draw with Real Madrid on Tuesday.

The German saw his close range shot saved by Thibaut Courtois in the 10th minute of the 1-1 draw at Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg.

"He missed a big one in West Ham now he missed another big one here. That does not help, but it also does not help to cry about it or to regret it all the time. It is like this.

"There are millions of people who have harder things to deal with than chances that you miss, so this is the good thing about sports – nobody cares tomorrow. Today we were sad we were angry in the moment, this is normal.

"He is angry. He is maybe disappointed.

"Tomorrow he has a free day and the next day he has to put his chin up. He is a professional guy a top guy, he works hard. He is in positions and from there on we go.

"We will never stop pushing, we will never stop believing and I have the feeling that everybody accepts the situation like it is and as a striker it is easy, you score the next game and nobody speaks about it."
