Tuchel again claims Chelsea aren’t ready

Thomas Tuchel has AGAIN admitted Chelsea are not yet ready for the start of the season, writes JORDAN DAVIES.

And the Blues boss continued to lament their “tiring” and “exhausting” two-week USA pre-season tour with less than a week to go until their Premier League opener away at Everton.

Goals from N’Golo Kante, Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount saw Chelsea win 3-1 away at Udinese on Friday night.

Sterling’s strike was his first for the club since his £50m move from Manchester City, while another new signing in Kalidou Koulibaly made his maiden start.

Despite these positives, German coach Tuchel suggested there is still a long way to go before his side are Prem-ready to compete against the Toffees at Goodison on Saturday.

Tuchel produced a blistering attack on his own squad after their 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal in Orlando last weekend, accusing them of not being committed mentally or physically.

It was a tour that also saw them narrowly beat Club America in Las Vegas before losing on penalties to MLS newbies Charlotte FC.
