Why Mount Was Substituted In Second Half For Kante -Tuchel


Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel says the need to break down Spurs prompted his decision to remove Mason Mount for N’Golo Kante in the second half.

Recall that the change sparked Chelsea into action as Kante scored in the 3-0 win on Sunday.

Chelsea had struggled to break beyond Spurs’ high press and Mount, at one stage, could also have passed to Kai Havertz who was in space on the left. He instead attempted to put Romelu Lukaku through on goal but his pass was misplaced.

Tuchel later said: “It was a hard choice for Mason Mount and it was a bit more defensive from N’Golo Kante but I wanted to give energy.

“I was not ready to talk about the spaces here and there. It was about the second balls and duels. It was about growing in confidence through energy and ball wins and higher work-rate. That was the signal to the talk more or less.”
