  • Tuchel reveals Rudiger’s exit

    In a shocking post-match interview, Thomas Tuchel revealed Antonio Rudiger’s decision to leave the club.

    He wants to leave the club. He informed me about this in a private conversation. We gave everything. Without the sanctions, at least we could keep fighting, but our hands are tied. We don’t take it personally. It’s his decision. He is a key figure and he will remain so until the end of the season. But it’s disappointing. we will miss him very much.

    Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea boss

    Real Madrid looks set to be the Frenchman’s next destination.

  • They took a few bites of the cherry

  • Pulisic relieved

    The goalscorer had his word on the procedure:

    It feels good to be more confident in the top four. We needed a win at home and it feels great for our fans. We have to finish the season strong… I had to come in and make a difference and show that I want to play.

    After a brilliant game, Dawson was shown red for a challenge on Lukaku in the penalty area.

    You wonder if Dawson had been there, the American wouldn’t have had the leeway to pick his spot.

    A cruel, cruel end for the Hammers.
