Thomas Tuchel was unhappy with two questions asked at his post-match press conference following Chelsea's defeat to Manchester City which leaves the Blues 13 points adrift of the Premier League leaders.

Chelsea remain in second place in the table - though Liverpool could go five points above them if they win their games in hand - but Tuchel was not happy with suggestions that the Blues are no longer competing against Jurgen Klopp's side.

Asked if Chelsea are now in a race just to secure a top-four finish, rather than competing with Manchester City and Liverpool for the title, Tuchel snapped back: 'Why should we not look to Liverpool?

When the reporter clarified that Chelsea were no longer the hunters and could even become the hunted now, Tuchel replied: 'Yeah, there's a part of being the hunter of a top team and there's a part where you're hunted.

More: Chelsea FC Tuchel then had another run-in with a journalist in the very next question when it was suggested he had been critical of the chances Romelu Lukaku missed against City in his television interviews after the game.

Re-wording the question to ask what the issue was with Chelsea's attack and why they were so poor against City, Tuchel replied: 'Because we didn't have enough chances for the ball wins and the movements and the opportunities that we could have had. 'We could have had much more chances if we played with better timing, with better precision.

Efficiency you need a bit of luck and composure and whatever, but we could have had much more chances - that is what I am critical about.
