Sarri: “We were a different team after their second goal. We lost confidence”

Maurizio Sarri was clearly disappointed after Chelsea defeat at Wolves but the Blues boss didn’t see such a bad performance from his lads:

“I think that we played very well for 55 minutes. After the goal, it was an accident because we were in full control of the match. We were suddenly a different team, I don’t know why. I am really very worried, not for the result but for the fact we didn’t respond to the first goal.

Chelsea complained for a possible not awarded penalty for a foul on Alvaro Morata:

“I don’t know about that. We could have scored four or five goals. We missed them.

Asked if he regrets something in his selection choices, Sarri said:

“If you had asked me the same question after 55 minutes I would say I was happy. We lost everything. It can happen, but I don’t think it. It was without reaction.

Sarri was asked if he is worried for next Saturday’s game against Manchester City after this second defeat in only three games:

“As I said before, City are in another category. They are not in our category. We have to play and to fight to be in the top four I think. The result is very difficult for this. In every match you have to gain points. I lost Serie A with 91 points, so I know every match you have to gain points.

Probably there was a foul in Wolves’ second goal build-up:

“I don’t know, but I think it is more important to talk about our attitude, the first goal. We were not the same team. It was not for me. I have to understand why. Only for a goal. We had to play 35 minutes after that.

Asked if this defeat makes Man City’s clash harder, Sarri replied:

“No. As I said before City are the best in Europe, maybe in the world, they can win the Champions League, but it depends on moments. If you have to play against them for ten months they are the best in the world at the moment. After this match we lost confidence, but maybe it is better. Sometimes my players show me they have too much confidence.”
