Former Chelsea assistant coach Jody Morris has criticised Thomas Tuchel for not making earlier substitutions against Manchester United on Sunday.

The match at Stamford Bridge ended in a 1-1 draw despite Chelsea dominating the contest.

And Morris thinks the Blues would've benefitted from changes in their attacking half.

He told Stadium Astro: "From a fan's perspective, I would definitely have liked a couple if not all three changes at the top end of the pitch a lot earlier.

"I just felt that with the amount of dominance Chelsea had they wasn't creating enough real good chances.

"The fact you have the level of bench that Chelsea had, there was no reason why at least two of them could have been brought on a lot earlier.

"I thought Lukaku was the perfect addition but that's without knowing the physical capabilities he has right now. He might not have had more than the manager gave him.

"It's always easier to say after the game but we were slightly surprised that Tuchel didn't make changes earlier."
