Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says he was not happy with his players’ attitude and felt they were overconfident after a shock 2-1 defeat to Wolves on last night.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s goal had put Chelsea on track at Molineux Stadium, but second half’s goals from Raul Gimenez and Diogo Jota saw the hosts claiming a surprise Premier League win over the Blues.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is simply on fire.
He’s not playing games, he’s here for the midfield position.

The result mean Sarri’s side slide to fourth in the table, 10 points behind table leaders Manchester City ahead of their clash with the league leaders on Saturday.
Sarri thinks the defeat to Wolves may help his men as he praised Pep Guardiola’s high-flying City.
“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.
Maurizio Sarri is ‘struggling to understand’ how Chelsea allowed Wolves to come from behind to beat his side.

“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.
“Of course, after this match we lost confidence, but maybe it is better. Sometimes my players show me that they have too much confidence.”
