Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, speaking after today’s home draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge, admitted his side were ‘unlucky’ as they conceded a goal with the visitors’ first effort on goal.
The Italian boss told journalists: “We were unlucky because we conceded a goal in the first situation inside our box, the first and last in 90 minutes,
“We were unlucky for that but at the other end we need to improve in attack. Wolves defended in the last 20 metres with 11 players”.
“We needed to move the ball faster, more movement without the ball, more movement into space, behind the line, and we played with five touches, so if there are no spaces it’s very difficult to score with five or six touches against a very physical team with 11 players in the last 20 metres. We need to improve in this kind of situation”.
Eden Hazard rescued one and deserved point with a brilliant shot in the injury-time. Sarri added: “Hazard is a great player, he solved the situation in the moment. But during the match, was like the other players. He needs more movement without the ball”.
“When you have only 10 matches, every match you’re not able to win is a missed opportunity. Today was a great opportunity but we were not able to gain three points”.
“In the last six matches, we won four and drew the other two, so there is a little consistency in this moment. We have to think only to the next match. We need to recover two points immediately”.
He ended: “As I said before, we are in the moment of consistency. We have only to continue. We are confident of course. We have to be confident”.
