At Thomas Tuchel's press conference, the Chelsea coach harshly criticized Romelu Lukaku for his mistakes on the pitch after the Blues' loss to Manchester City. 

Among his harshest remarks to the Belgian player, the coach said that Lukaku does not pass the ball when he should, lost the ball in compromising circumstances, and above all, he reproached him that he had a great opportunity to score, but he wasted it

Manchester City won narrowly against Chelse and ended the game with a score of 1-0, which would normally make any manager happy.

However, Pep Guardiola must be much more than satisfied as his team has the Premier League practically in the bag because with today's victory, they moved 13 points clear of their closest followers, Chelsea

While the Blues have 43 points, the Citizens have 56, giving them a good lead in the English top competition. 

What did Tuchel say to Lukaku about his performance against City?

Tuchel went into his press conference ready to throw fire on the Belgian striker. 

The Chelsea coach said: 

"Lukaku sometimes needs to do the service, this also has to be included in this, he had a lot of turnovers in very compromising circumstances, he had a great chance". 

"Of course, we want to help him, but he is part of the team, and the performance up front, he can do much better," said the tactician. 

The criticism that was aimed squarely at Lukaku was towards the Stamford Bridge side's forward performance:

"We had chances but we lacked fire in the box. I'm not happy with that. We need to improve our accuracy inside the box."

Is the Chelsea feud reignited?

Just a week ago the player apologized to the fans through a video, in which he told the club's supporters that his intention was not to harm the institution. 

This is about an interview he gave two weeks ago in which he said he was not comfortable at Chelsea, and that he was not happy with the game plan of his coach Thomas Tuchel

For those comments, the player was not fielded in the Chelsea-Liverpool clash, in which Pulisic carried his team and scored the equalizer to save the Blues.

Because of that match that was lost, Lukaku decided to cool down the tempers and so he released the video in which he tells Chelsea fans that he was sorry for his previous statements

The player had a good performance with his team where he has 5 goals and 1 assist in 14 games. 

Although this mark is far from his almost 50 goals in Serie A, his goals had come at important moments for Tuchel's team.

And everything was going relatively well, until the interview in which he made his controversial statements.  

Finally, the story ended with the player's return to the starting eleven. He started 14 of the 22 possible matches. On the other hand, in the Champions League, he scored two goals and in the FA Cup on one occasion.

Will this criticism be the start of a new war of statements between Tuchel and Lukaku
