Maurizio Sarri says slamming Chelsea’s players was not a risky move

Arsenal comprehensively beat Chelsea prompting furious Blues boss Maurizio Sarri to denounce his side

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri was left fuming following his side's 2-0 defeat to London rivals Arsenal on Saturday evening.

"I have to say that I'm extremely angry, very angry indeed". "This defeat was due to our mentality, our mental approach".

After the match Sarri refused to mince his words when he stated it is "extremely hard to motivate" his Chelsea players.

"As a group of players they are not particularly aggressive from a mental point of view, they don't have that kind of ferocity in their mentality and that is something that it's down to the type of players they are - their characteristics".

On current form, Sarri's men look likely to be caught by Arsenal or United as a fourth defeat in 11 league matches underlined the need for the signing of Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus, which is expected to be completed in the coming days.

However, a run of five consecutive wins, including an impressive 1-0 win at Wembley against Tottenham Hotspur, has seen the Red Devils pull level on points with fifth-place Arsenal.

Chelsea FC have collected 22 points from 10 away games in the Premier League this season. I thought we had managed to overcome this issue.

"Hazard can play the false nine role but he doesn't offer you as much".

And now Sarri has said it.

Tesla to cut jobs as cars 'too expensive'
Assuming that's still the case, a 7 percent cut would be about 3,150 workers. "In Q3 previous year , we were able to make a 4% profit", Musk said in a blog post.

"It was not easy for us, but I'm happy to score and help the team".

Emery said: "Today, every circumstance came with us". We are a team that should be playing one or two touches, instead at some stages we were playing with seven or eight.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should have scored early on but sliced wide from in front of goal but strike partner Lacazette was more clinical with a superb opener after 14 minutes.

Kepa Arrizabalaga then produced a brilliant save to deny Koscielny from point-blank range, but it counted for little as from the resulting corner Arsenal took a deserved lead.

Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea struggled to create in the first half but did hit the post on the stroke of half-time through Marcos Alonso's header at a corner.

"You have to influence them".

"It is his knee and the first prediction maybe can be an important injury", Emery said in a press conference.

Sead Kolasinac will start on the opposite flank while Nacho Monreal will require some time to get used to the pace of the game after recovering from his injury.
