Sarri criticizes Chelsea players after Wolves defeat
Maurizio Sarri slammed a number of Chelsea players following a 1-2 defeat to Wolves claiming they've "too much confidence."
Chelsea took the lead in the first half through Ruben Loftus-Cheek but second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota saw the Blues fall short. Sarri feels the defeat to Wolves may help Chelsea as he praised Pep Guardiola's high-flying City.
" Of course, after this match, we lost confidence, but maybe it is better. Sometimes my players show me that they have too much confidence," said Sarri.
The former Napoli boss made five changes to the team that beat Fulham on Sunday, with Jorginho and David Luiz among the unused substitutes.
On playing City next
"As I said before, City are the best in Europe, maybe in the world, they can win or not the Champions League, but that depends on the moments," he told a news conference.
"Last season I think City were the best team in the Champions League, but then for two matches, they played maybe not in the best moment of the City. If you have to play against them for 10 months they are the best in the world, I think, at the moment. So the match is difficult for this reason."
