Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was clearly disappointed after his team awful display at Tottenham:
“It’s clear. I knew we had a lot of problems to solve and today it was clear for everybody I think: first of all I hope for the players. We played very badly. It was a disaster.
“I told them before that we had a big problem in the approach to the match. And today there was a difference in the level of the opponent.
“We have a lot of problems to solve but I knew that before this match.”
In the second half Sarri replaced Alvaro Morata with Pedro before eventually also sending on Olivier Giroud, who scored the visitors’ goal.
“I had to do something different, to try and change the match,” he explained.
“But it wasn’t important. They were better than us. I could have changed 11 players and had the same result.”
