Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits he is struggling to understand the reasoning for his side’s poor performance in Saturday’s defeat at Tottenham.
The Blues’ unbeaten start to the season came to an abrupt end as goals from Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son gave Spurs a comprehensive win at Wembley. The defeat saw Chelsea drop to fourth in the division, seven points behind leaders Manchester City at the summit.
Speaking ahead of tonights Europa League clash with PAOK, Maurizio Sarri didn’t seem to know why his side were so poor.
“It is difficult to tell me why,” he said.
“Someone told me that the international might have been a problem, to be back 100 per cent.
“But I don’t know. Maybe for Spurs it was easier as the players played in London on Sunday so was all together, but the situation was similar.”
Sarri is reported to have conducted individual player meetings this week in a bid to rectify last weekends mistakes with the Italian having been vocally critical of his side’s performance.
Chelsea next host Greek side PAOK in the Europa League on Thursday before West London neighbours Fulham visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
