FA Cup: Tuchel defends decision on Tammy Abraham in Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Leicester

Published

Thomas Tuchel has explained why Tammy Abraham was not considered in his squad for the FA Cup final against Leicester City on Saturday.

The German tactician insisted it was a difficult decision for him to leave Abraham out of the team.

Abraham featured prominently for Chelsea under Frank Lampard before the coming of Tuchel in January.

But the England striker has fallen dramatically down the pecking order despite being the club’s top goalscorer this season.

The 23-year-old scored his first senior hat-trick in the fourth round of the FA Cup against Luton, which was Lampard’s final game at the helm.

Tuchel left the striker out of the team for the final on Saturday opting to start with Timo Werner up front.

He brought on Olivier Giroud during the closing stages as Chelsea tried, but ultimately failed, to find an equalising goal.

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.”
