Thomas Tuchel has backed Jorginho to continue his penalty style despite the awful miss against West Ham
Sub Christian Pulisic got his Italian team-mate out of jail by scoring in the last seconds of normal time but boss Tuchel admits his player is ‘upset’ at his miss.
Tuchel said: “Jorgi had a perfect record with us so normally you believe and we all believed we had finally the chance to score the goal we needed.
“He has a certain style of shooting. When he scores it looks unbelievable, cool, calm, composed.
“When he misses a penalty, it looks like: could he have done better?

“But it’s his style and he’s right to stick with it. He’s very upset with himself.”
Matchwinner Pulisic admits it is a huge relief to have ended a run of three successive home defeats.
The American revealed boss Tuchel told him to go out and grab a winner.
Pulisic said: “He just said to make a difference. To combine and make opportunities.
“It feels good to be more secure in the top four. We need a win at home and it feels great in front of our fans.
“We need to finish the season strong. Some good league games and then a final.
“I needed to come in and make a difference and show I want to be playing.”
