Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted his side must stop making things difficult for themselves after their draw with Wolves.

The Blues took a two goal leads in the second-half thanks to a brace from Romelu Lukaku.

However goals from Francisco Trincao and a late Conor Coady equaliser grabbed a point for Wolves and dented Chelsea’s top four security.

They now sit just four points ahead of Arsenal, who have a game in hand on Tuchel’s side.

“Always frustrating if you concede a late goal, which cost us two points, but we are struggling in defending at home games and to keep the shape which is needed not to concede.

“We started very well then in the last 10 minutes of the first half we are too offensive and don’t take care of coverage. We gave counter-attacking chances away.

“We started very well in the second half and created chances. We scored twice then again we start to do things not in our match plan. On top of it we get punished and conceded way too many chances throughout the whole match.

“We have to digest it and overcome it, which feels very difficult at the moment. It’s not for the first time this happens. We make things more difficult for ourselves so it’s a lot to overcome.

“I think we give everything but the decisions we take we struggle in that. It is like this and we get punished for it.”

On Todd Boehly, who was in attendance at Stamford Bridge and is set to takeover at the club, Tuchel added: “No I haven’t met him yet. It is of course important but out of my hands so I do not know when it will be completed.”

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta added: “Very disappointing because we were leading 2-0 so to drop two points in this way is very disappointing. Of course the taste of the game is bad.

“We are conceding too many goals in the last couple of games which is putting us in a difficult position in the race for the Champions League.

“Other teams are winning and we are not getting as many points as we should. We have to get up together and have a good last few weeks. It is in our hands and we have an FA Cup final to play.

“The pressure is always there. You have to accept it. Every point is important. Now we have to start better. We used to be a solid team, now we are conceding a lot of goals. That has put ourselves in a difficult position.”
