Comments Off on Chelsea manager unsure after club’s defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has indicated that he is unsure what had struck the team during the second half of the Premier League clash at Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Blues opened the scoring after a deflected shot via Ruben Loftus-Cheek and they went into the break holding a handy advantage.

The west London side continued with the same level of performance following the break, but – reaching towards the hour mark – they witnessed a shock turnaround with Wolves netting two goals in the space of four second-half minutes. Thereafter, the Blues tried to find the equaliser without much success and speaking after the game, Sarri has acknowledged that he is disappointed by the result and can’t understand the reaction from his players.

He said:“Of course I am disappointed. We played very well in the first half. We could have killed the game. Suddenly we conceded a goal and we were the same team on the pitch. It’s very difficult for me to understand why. There was time for winning the match. I can’t understand the reaction. I don’t know [whether we should have had a penalty]. In the first 10 minutes of the second half we had five goal opportunities. I don’t want to discuss only one possible penalty. We played very well for 55 minutes and then suddenly we were another team.”

Just a couple of months back, the Blues were within a couple of points off table-toppers Manchester City at the top of the table but their performances have since dipped with just two wins from their previous five matches. As such, they are currently facing a fight for the final Champions League spot with Arsenal behind them on only goal difference and they could fall below their counterparts with anything less than a win over Manchester City this weekend. The Blues failed to win both of their matches against the Citizens during the previous campaign.
