Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admits it will be ‘very difficult’ for his side to finish in the Premier League’s top four following their shock loss to Wolves on Wednesday night.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s early deflected strike gave Sarri’s side the perfect start at Molineux, but a quickfire second-half double from Raul Jimenez and Diego Jota gave the home side the three points.
The result leaves Chelsea fourth in the division, ten points behind leaders Manchester City, and Sarri admits it will be difficult for his side to maintain that position.
“As I said before, Manchester City are in another category. At the moment they are not in our category. We have to play and to fight to be in the top four I think.’’ Sarri told his post match press conference.
“The result is very difficult for this, because I know very well that in every match you have to gain points. In the last championship in Italy I lost Serie A with 91 points, so I know very well that in every match you have to gain points. It is very difficult for staying in the first four.”
