Angry Sarri rounds on over-confident players after defeat to Wolves

Chelsea take on Wolves in the Premier League on Wednesday and Maurizio Sarri will surely be resting a couple of his first-team players. I don't know why.

Chelsea, who sit fourth, host leaders City on Saturday and Sarri was annoyed at their complacency. "I am really anxious not for the result but for the fact that we didn't react to the first goal of the opponent".

And all of Loftus-Cheek's league matches this season have been off the bench, with his only starts coming in cup competitions. It can happen, but I don't think it depends on the changes. "When I am on the pitch I can't have any negative thoughts when I am in and around the team because it will affect the team".

Sarri also refused to blame the penalty incident involving Morata on his side's defeat. We have to play and fight for the top four.

Loftus-Cheek cut in from the left and hit a curling shot that struck the head of the unlucky Conor Coady to wrongfoot goalkeeper Rui Patricio and creep inside the near post.

Ryan Bennett's goal-saving tackle denied Willian in the first half and Alvaro Morata missed an excellent chance immediately after the break.

"Wolves have lost their last three home league games and things are likely to get worse before they get better at Molineux when Chelsea are the visitors on Wednesday night", Owen told BetVictor. Willian, once such a reliable figure, was culpable in Wolves' victor from Diego Jota and questions will also be asked of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

"It was a good performance, even in the first half when we were behind", Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo said.

'It doesn't have to do with confidence, it has to do with so many aspects of the game - technical, tactical, mental - and we have to solve it.

"We got the result but we have a long way to go".
