Chelsea players had too much confidence, says Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea players had too much confidence, says Maurizio Sarri

I think there is no chance, ... it's very hard to find a central midfielder technically like Fabregas.

"I am really very anxious, not for the result, but for the fact we did not respond to the first goal", the Chelsea boss added. "After the first goal, that was an accident because we were in control of the match, we were suddenly another team, without our distances and without our football".

Chelsea fought to find a way back, Hazard and Fabregas firing over in the closing stages, but Nuno Espirito Santo's men held on to claim a famous win and snap a worrying sequence that delivered just one point from six matches.

Gibbs-White, 18, was sensational on his first Premier League start and played a major part in his side's first goal as they came from behind for a famous 2-1 victory at Molineux. "But maybe it's better, because sometimes my players show me they have too much confidence". I am very anxious, about the fact we didn't react to the first goal of the opponents.

Chelsea, who sit fourth, host leaders City on Saturday and Sarri was annoyed at their complacency. I don't think it depended on the changes, it depended on the mentality of the team.

However, it would be worth bearing in mind that Wolves have held Manchester City at home already this season, whilst also holding Arsenal to a draw at the Emirates Stadium and Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Chelsea academy graduate Andreas Christensen comes into the team in place of David Luiz in defence.

He said: "Manchester City are in another category". In Serie A, in the last championship, I lost with 91 points so I know very well that in every match we need to gain points.

Chelsea FC are looking to finish in the top four this season after the Blues ended up in fifth spot last term.
