Chelsea Boss Blasts His Players

If the first rule of football management is that you should never criticise your players in public, Maurizio Sarri broke it in spectacular style by condemning his Chelsea team after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Arsenal.

This was the day when Sarri took a leaf out of Jose Mourinho’s book by pointing the finger of blame at those on the pitch rather than the tactics they had been told to employ, and only time will tell whether it was a bold move or the first sign of his inability to succeed as manager at Stamford Bridge.

It was a game when Chelsea could only muster one shot on target and was perhaps the day when all of the flaws that have been exposed recently finally combined to cost the team against a direct rival for Champions League qualification.
