Being on the receiving finish of a 13-0 defeat is all the time going to be a match that you just’ll keep in mind, and that’ll positively be the case for Weymouth’s gamers after they had been taken aside in a behind-closed-doors pleasant on Sunday in opposition to Chelsea.
After beating Crystal Palace on Saturday of their 2021/22 Premier League opener, Thomas Tuchel had, apparently, wished to offer these gamers who didn’t play in opposition to the Eagles a run out to spice up their health.
It’s honest to say that the non-league outfit in all probability weren’t anticipating to face such a robust Blues squad, and had been 8-0 down by half-time.

Tuchel had performed the likes of Thiago Silva, Callum-Hudson Odoi, Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Emerson Palmieri, Kurt Zouma and Davide Zappacosta.
Regardless of the eventual 13-0 loss, Weymouth’s employees had been vastly impressed by Tuchel’s professionalism after the sport.
“The scoreline, nobody needs to lose 13-0 however while you have a look at the motion, the ability, the tempo – you possibly can see the top-level and large gulf,” supervisor, Brian Inventory, mentioned to The Dorset Echo, cited by the Mirror.
“The lads saved on going proper to the tip. Thomas Tuchel came to visit and mentioned some very good phrases to us. Other than the scoreline, all the things else was constructive.”
They’ll in all probability assume twice earlier than accepting one other invitation although.
