Maurizio Sarri says his Chelsea side lost to Wolves because players were ‘too confident’


The Blues conceded twice in the second half as Wolves came from a goal down to win 2-1

Maurizio Sarri accused his Chelsea players of having too much confidence following their shock 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota helped Wolves come from behind and end a run of six matches in the Premier League without a win.

Wolves came from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1

The Blues appeared to be in control for much of the match, having taken the lead through Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s deflected effort, while Alvaro Morata had claims for a penalty waved away, with score still at 1-0.

Sarri was disappointed in how his side switched off and failed to play well for the entire 90 minutes at Molineux.

“Of course, after this match we lost confidence but maybe it is better because sometimes my players show me they have too much confidence,” he said.

“It is more important to talk about our attitude after the first goal. We were not the same team as before, we were another team.

“Maybe it was important for the result but not for me. I have to understand why the team was suddenly another team because we were in control of the match.”I thought we played very well for 55 minutes,” Sarri added.

“After the first goal, that was an accident because we were in control of the match, we were suddenly another team, without our distances and without our football. ”

It was a second defeat in three matches for Chelsea, who drop down to fourth and are now ten points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who they play at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
