I'm not talking about it - Tuchel's incredible decision to dismiss Lukaku's 2-goal haul against Wolves

Thomas Tuchel waved off Lukaku's impressive two-goal performance against Wolves, the Belgian's first league goals in almost five months

Romelu Lukaku scored two goals against Wolves but Thomas Tuchel was angry about losing two points

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has downplayed Romelu Lukaku's two-goal haul against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Blues' Premier League outing on Saturday.

Lukaku grabbed a second-half brace in Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Wolves at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, the first time the Belgian would find the back of the net in the league since December's 1-1 draw with Brighton.

However, Tuchel decided to focus on Chelsea losing two points at home without saying much about the striker's performance.

In Tuchel's post-match press conference as covered by Football London, the Chelsea manager only admitted that Lukaku had a 'good performance' and surprisingly moved on.

The German tactician simply said it was not the time to talk about individual performances because of the dropped points.

Tuchel said: "Yeah, but guys. Good performance but for sure not the moment to talk about individual performances. We lost points.

"It's not about dropping too much, it's about where we were losing the ball and the opponent taking a crazy approach.

"Big chances that we don't create, the pass is missing, the dribbling is wrong. At some point we played like we were 2-0 down not 2-0 up.

"We tried to change the structure, I don't know if that was the right decision from me, I need to watch it back.

Tuchel also stated that the confirmation of Todd Boehly's takeover of the club would not have much of an effect on the players because it was not the cause of their loss of focus.

"I don't think ownership is a reason for lack of focus. We showed when the situation began that we can still focus. I would not consider this as advantage for Leeds," Tuchel said.

"It does not change much for us as the sanctions are not lifted. It's not worth thinking about, we have our own stuff to solve and make better."

Chelsea remain 3rd on the log with 67 points, but just four points ahead of Arsenal who have a game in hand against Leeds United.

The Blues have won just one of their last five Premier League matches, losing to Arsenal and Everton and drawing at Manchester United.
