Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has made a concerning admission following our 2-1 defeat to Wolves – even he is ‘worried’ about the manner in which the team reacted to the equaliser.
We knew that our team wasn’t perfect. In case there was any doubt, Tottenham exposed the flaws within our midfield and defence for the world to see.
The team reacted to the defeat with back-to-back wins over PAOK and Fulham, but just as we were hoping that they would kick-on with another three points against Wolves, they capitulated and fell to another loss.
Two goals in the space of four minutes condemned us to a really bad result ahead of our clash with Manchester City at the weekend, and Sarri has admitted his concern. The Italian also (worryingly) admitted that he doesn’t know the cause of our collapse.
Sarri is quoted by the Guardian saying:
“After the first [Wolves] goal – that was an accident because we were in full control of the match – we were suddenly another team, without the right distances, without our football. I don’t know why.”
“I am really worried not for the result but for the fact that we didn’t react to the first goal of the opponent”
We’re well aware that Sarri has not inherited his ideal squad, and the summer signings we made were not sufficient. However, he has to do something on the training field to sort this mess out, else we face another season without Champions League football.
