Tuchel explains Saul snub after Chelsea midfielder was hooked at half-time in nightmare debut

 The Blues snapped up the Spain international from Atletico Madrid on transfer deadline day, but have handed him just 45 minutes of Premier League time

Thomas Tuchel has explained why Saul Niguez has not played for Chelsea in the Premier League since being hooked at half-time during his nightmare debut for the Blues against Aston Villa.

The Spain international midfielder was brought to Stamford Bridge on transfer deadline day on an initial loan agreement from Atletico Madrid.

Saul was thrust straight into Tuchel’s starting XI against Villa on September 11, but saw just 45 minutes of action and has played only 76 more since then against the same opponents in the Carabao Cup.
