Maurizio Sarri questions Chelsea players’ attitude after Wolves defeat


Chelsea star Eden Hazard wasn't at his best against Fulham says Pat Nevin

"I shouted a lot in the first half but I wasn't angry".

"If you look at everyone around us, Chelsea, Arsenal, then everyone has been doing brilliantly so far and it's going to be very interesting".

Maurizio Sarri's team were clearly the better team from the start and got the reward for their dominance when Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek's shot took a deflection off Wolves' defender, Conor Coady and found the back of the net to make it 1-0. Sometimes my players show me they have too much confidence.

"As I said before, City are the best in Europe, maybe in the world, they can win or not the Champions League, but that depends on the moments", he told a news conference.

"I know very well that there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week, I think", said Sarri.

"I am very anxious, not with the result, but for the fact we didn't react to the first goal of the opponent". The Italian admitted he was "really worried" by what he had seen thereafter as Wolves turned the game on its head through Diogo Jota's victor.

Willian felt he had been fouled in the build-up to Wolves" victor, but Sarri was not interested, continuing: "I think it's more important to talk about our attitude after the first goal.

Maurizio Sarri's side also face MOL Vidi in the Europa League group stages and Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup quarter-final.

Four minutes later the hosts levelled when Anthony Martial turned home Ander Herrera's cross after Bernd Leno saved Marcos Rojo's cross.

Ryan Bennett's goal-saving tackle denied Willian in the first half and Alvaro Morata missed an excellent chance immediately after the break.

"Last season we had two more points - this season we already conceded two draws and last season we only had one at this point of the season".

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo said: "I think everybody enjoyed it - everybody from Wolves of course".

Harry Kane has scored more goals against the Foxes than any other team and he can help the visitors extend their fine record against the non-elite - they've won 10 of 11 games against sides outside the current top five. We felt comfortable and were playing good football.
