Chelsea suffered a horrific 5-2 loss against struggling West Bromwich Albion to end Tuchel’s unbeaten run since he joined the club.

Since replacing Frank Lampard, Tuchel ensured the Blues were unbeaten in the last 14 games in all competitions.

Pulisic scored in the first half to give Chelsea an early lead before Thiago Silva, the Brazilian defender, got sent off.

West Brom took advantage of the situation, and Matheus Pereira netted twice before the end of the first half.

West Brom’s Mbaye Diagne scored the third goal before Callum Robinson netted the last two goals before full-time.

The Blues remain in the fourth position as they wait for how Tottenham and West Ham will fair in their next matches. If they win, they will both go above Tuchel’s side.

“We were unable to cope with the red card. I don’t know why. We gave away two very easy goals,” Tuchel said.

“What could go wrong went wrong after the red card. Every shot was a goal from them.”

“It’s important we digest it. I did not see it coming, now we have to take our responsibilities – me included – and shake it off,” Tuchel said.

“It’s a wake-up call. We will get the right response.”
