Thomas Tuchel has revealed why Tammy Abraham was left out of Chelsea’s FA Cup final squad to face Leicester City. The Blues suffered a 1-0 defeat as the Foxes were crowned champions on Saturday thanks to Youri Tielemans only goal.
Abraham featured prominently under Frank Lampard, however, since Tuchel’s arrival he has been lacking playing time. Despite lacking opportunities, the 23-year-old remains the Blues top goalscorer having scored 12 goals so far this season.
Asked after the game if Abraham simply wasn’t a player for him, Tuchel told Stadium Astro: “No, it’s just hard decisions on a matchday when you can only nominate 18 players.”
