Sarri can’t understand Chelsea’s second half performance in Wolves defeat

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri struggled for explanations after his side squandered a lead to lose 2-1 at Wolves on Wednesday night.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored for the second Premier League game in a row to put the visitor’s ahead, but The Blues failed to build on that platform and fell to defeat following goals from Raul Jimenez and Diego Jota.

“Of course I am disappointed. We played very well in the first half. We could have killed the game.’’ Sarri told the BBC.

“Suddenly we conceded a goal and we were the same team on the pitch. It’s very difficult for me to understand why. There was time for winning the match. I can’t understand the reaction.

“I don’t know [whether we should have had a penalty]. In the first 10 minutes of the second half we had five goal opportunities. I don’t want to discuss only one possible penalty.

“We played very well for 55 minutes and then suddenly we were another team.

“In Italy [with Napoli] I lost the championship with 91 points. So I know every match you have to gain points and points and points.”
