Speaking at his post-match press conference after the game, Tuchel said, “There is no doubt he is super important. Every player is, but Romelu will be a key player.

“He was unlucky to get injured, then struggled to come back in the schedule, then Covid. 45 minutes was more than the fitness department recommended, but we thought we could take the risk.”

Tuchel added, “He does not need me to play a game like this, he doesn’t need a speech. He just needs to get fit and this isn’t easy when you have an injury and a body like Rom.
