Chelsea beaten at Wolves, loses more ground in title race

Share

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri criticised his players' attitude and felt they were overconfident after a shock 2-1 loss to Wolves on Wednesday.

Sarri has been unwavering in his insistence that Chelsea are not title contenders this season, but he downplayed the suggestion that the manner of this defeat could have a negative effect on his team ahead of the City game.

When Sarri opted to make a second-half change in search of an equaliser following Wolves' impressive turnaround, it was not Loftus-Cheek but N'Golo Kante who made way for Mateo Kovacic.

The Blues are now seven points behind league leaders Manchester City and Maurizio Sarri will be hoping to pick up an easy victory against an underperforming Wolves side.
