Thomas Tuchel names Chelsea star he’s worried about after win over Watford, says “for the first time it feels like a lucky win”

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel isn’t satisfied with the performance as he described the result as a “lucky win” and is worried about Trevoh Chalobah’s injury.

Tuchel told Amazon: “That’s not us. We were absolutely not ready today for this match. I missed maybe to find the right approach to make my team ready. We had the break due to very sad circumstances – hopefully the person is better.

“Even this break after the first 11 minutes did not change our approach. We did not cope with the pressure, with the first ball, second ball.

“We had a lot of changes but too many faults. It did not get better. The only thing we could do was hang in there and focus on the easy things. It was a lucky win.

“I see this totally as an exception from the rule. I will not insist too long on this match because it’s so unusual for us to play like this.

“The next game on Saturday, the most worried I am is about the injury for Trevoh Chalobah. The doctor was on the pitch 20 times today it felt like. It’s a big loss from Trev. I’m a bit worried.

” [Kai] Havertz was very strong today. I felt he was the one player reaching his level today. We missed some players. We had some players overloaded. We stole three points. We don’t have to talk around it. For the first time it feels like a lucky win”

Ziyech hands Chelsea victory at Vicarage Road in pulsating match (Match Report)

Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech ensured the visitors defeated Watford in an immensely eventful and dramatic encounter at Vicarage Road.

Two moments of quality from the league leaders prove to be the difference as they are pushed all the way by Claudio Ranieri’s side.

The match was halted after 13 minutes when a fan suffered a cardiac arrest in the Graham Taylor Stand.

The game was paused for half an hour until the supporter was stabilised and taken to a nearby hospital.

Chelsea opened the scoring on 29 minutes when a delicious ball by Antonio Rudiger found Marcos Alonso down the left flank and the full-back passed to Kai Havertz in the penalty area.

That is where the Germany international switched to Mason Mount to his right and the forward beat Daniel Bachmann with a clinical finish.

But Watford wouldn’t be denied as Moussa Sissoko led the counter-attack and passed to Emmanuel Dennis to his right.

Dennis beat Edouard Mendy with a composed finish and made it 1-1 just two minutes before half-time.

But Chelsea ended up being the winners thanks to a brilliant team goal on 72 minutes when Rudiger crossed from midfield to Alonso down the left flank and the full-back nodded it to Mount on his left.

The England international delivered a wonderful low ball to the penalty area where Hakim Ziyech picked it up and smashed the ball behind Bachmann’s net/
