Tuchel also outlined his thinking behind deploying Mount in a new position and reflected on the positives of not finishing the game off with more goals, namely that the team had to suffer together in the last moments.
‘We played with Mason coming from a number nine and dropping into a number 10 position because we wanted to have two wide strikers and find Mason in the spaces between the lines,’ he continued.
‘He did good but in the end if you have to suffer and defend then I told the team that it’s a good feeling. When things get complicated or things are not too easy with the second and third goals then we have to experience moments where we finish a game like this.
‘You have to experience it because it’s not enough for the coach just to tell you and this is what we did.’
