Chelsea played a 1-1 draw with Brighton on Wednesday, as they lose yet another points in the Premier League.
Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring for the Blues, meanwhile Danny Welbeck equalised for Brighton.
After the game head coach Thomas Tuchel provided injury updates on Reece James, Andreas Christensen and Christian Pulisic. The Blues boss said:
"Reece James we have a hamstring injury and a back injury for Andreas Christensen. That’s pretty much it.
"We knew before that this was going to be a tough match against a strong side. They come well prepared, it is always like this. I have not seen one team play a nice match against them (Brighton).
"It was clear we would struggle, we have simply way too many players with who we don’t know what we can demand. We have long injuries, they come from Covid, I simply don’t know what they are capable of doing.
"We started very, very well until the injury for Reece James, which was a huge blow. Andreas was until then one of the top players on the pitch.
"It is too much, that is why I can understand when you play against a Brighton side with nothing to lose and play with confidence so you have to overcome difficult moments.
"With NG [N’Golo] we were again much better, had huge chances and honestly, I would never usually say it but we have 100 per cent a penalty against Christian Pulisic, a 50/50 challenge from Mason Mount before the equaliser.
"The ball is going into the net, why does he need to whistle before the ball is over the line? Why? We have VAR to check, why can we not wait? If he decides then it is a foul then decide it but why is he so sure? Does he want to keep the tension up?
"The penalty is a joke, honestly a joke, not to interfere from VAR."
