Another defeat for Chelsea. After 2-0 lost against Liverpool, Sarri came at the press conference and spoke about the match, about championship and also about Rudiger’ injury.
Italian’ coach said Blues were a little bit unlucky, expecially about second score and about two-three opportunities wasted. He praised Salah and Liverpool’ team and Reds’ game. He also said himself proud of guys and happy about Chelsea’ improving.
“Of course Liverpool are one of the best teams in Europe at this moment, they play very well for 90 minutes but I think we stayed in the match really well.”
“We were a bit unlucky on the second goal. Salah is a talent, the second goal was a little bit unlucky for the timing and then a bit unlucky because in three minutes we have three opportunities, two with Hazard and one with Higuain and we hit the post, number 35 of our season”
“I am happy with the performance, we stayed in the match, probably two or three months ago we weren’t able to stay in this game”.
“We were defending low at the start of the first half, but we did that at the start of the first. Liverpool is able to approach the first and second half in the ten minutes, so it isn’t easy to play against them in that moment“.
“I think we were able to pass the first ten minutes with the same result in the last 20/25 we could find a lot of spaces because they needed to win and so the target was to arrive in the last 20 minutes at 0-0”.
“We are improving, its hard to cover the gap because the level is high and to cover it against Liverpool and City for us will be difficult. Now we are close to the other teams”.
He also spoke about which team will win he said it’s difficult to make predictions “It’s difficult to say, because probably it will depend on post in, post out, Point point by point but the difference will be one or two points”
And about Rudiger’ injury said:“I hope nothing serious but at the moment I am not able to say anything. We need another visit with the doctor and something else to be sure it’s not serious”.
