Thomas Tuchel has explained why he yelled at Timo Werner during Chelsea’s victory over Everton in the Premier League.

During the first half of Chelsea’s 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, Tuchel was caught on the broadcast shouting: ‘Timo, Timo, for how long are you still going to play on the left?

‘You must play on the right! You have been playing on the left for a quarter of an hour now. Don’t you understand it?’

Tuchel was seen tearing into Werner later in the match but the new Blues boss insists there is no hard feelings between the pair and he was simply ‘passing on information’.

Speaking on Friday, ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Leeds United, Tuchel said: ‘It was very direct, and at the moment without spectators, things like this can get out there. I was aware [of the video] because people around me showed me.

‘We reminded Timo to rejoin his position on the right because he was on the left too long. Switching positions is not a problem but we wanted Callum [Hudson-Odoi] on the left and Timo on the right side to make things easier for him.

‘We reminded him but it was not an insult or aggressive. It was direct. I know what you mean but in the end, if it is respectful and not insulting each other [it is fine].

‘I have no problem with the players being direct to me and sometimes on the sideline, the coaches are in a game mode where things are direct and meant to be clear.

‘Sometimes things are not pronounced in the most friendly or nice way. I agree but me and the players are in a game mode. I have the feeling that no one takes it too personally. It is about passing information. This is it.’

Chelsea maintained their impressive run under Tuchel with a comfortable 2-0 win over Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.

The Blues now turn their attentions to Leeds United and a trip to Elland Road on Saturday.

Mark Lawrenson, the Liverpool legend, reckons Leeds will end Chelsea’s unbeaten run under Tuchel.

He told BBC Sport: ‘Chelsea are going great guns – they are now unbeaten in 11 games since Thomas Tuchel took charge, and they were just too good for Everton on Monday night.

‘Leeds, in contrast, have not been on a great run of form recently, with just one win in five league games.

‘I don’t think they’ve been playing that badly though, and they will definitely test Chelsea’s improved defence. Leeds 2-1 Chelsea.’

Ahead of their trip to Leeds, Chelsea are fourth in the Premier League, two points above fifth-placed West Ham.
