The disappointing loss came only days after the European champions lost to rivals Man City at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel has now laid into his wards' performance during their trip to Turin, with the German claiming the team was slow and tired.

The Blues boss further admitted the west Londoners were "not good enough" suggesting they deserved to lose the encounter.

"It’s impossible in this kind of level to concede a goal like this. We know what’s coming, we got punished for it," the German manager said after the match.
"We were not good enough, slow, tired, mentally slow with decision making, it’s a strange one to analyse," he added.

Chelsea conceded the solitary goal just 10 seconds into the second half at the Allianz Stadium through Federico Chiesa who calmly finished to give Juve all three points.

While the visitors were largely the dominant side, they struggled to create any meaningful goalscoring chance.

Chelsea, who had gone an incredible six games without defeat have now suffered back-to-back losses against Juve and City.

They will be desperate to bounce back when they host Southampton on Saturday, October 2.
