Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has said it was ‘not a good feeling’ to leave Christian Pulisic out of his starting line-up for the FA Cup final against Leicester City.
Pulisic had started the previous two matches against Manchester City and Arsenal.
However, he was introduced in the 68th minute during the 1-0 defeat to the Foxes at Wembley.
However, while Tuchel suggested the American winger deserved to start the game, he was concerned about the winger aggravating an injury.
“For example would Christian Pulisic have deserved to play in the FA Cup final?” said Tuchel.
“Yes, of course, and it was not a good feeling to not let him start.
“But if he was in a risk of maybe re-injury and then he would be out for the next three matches, that would be the bigger regret for me.”
