Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel has ruled Chelsea out of the Premier League title race saying that the 16 points they are behind leaders Manchester City is too big a gap and their focus is the top four.
The German gaffer said this in a live press conference in preparation for Chelsea’s game against Crystal Palace. Tuchel explained that the 16-point gap is too huge a task to take on. He said the team would concentrate on making the top 4 which is a good thing as far as the English Premier League is concerned. Thomas also said there would be an evaluation at the end of the season to see why the team could not compete for the EPL title till the end.
The Blues were top of the table earlier in the season but they lost the lead to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Chelsea slipped to the third position on the English Premier League table after a poor run of form.
