Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has named Alvaro Morata as the reason why his side lost 2-1 loss to Wolves on Wednesday. The Italian placed the blame on him for missing chances to put the Blues ahead in the game.
Sarri made this known in his post match press conference from Molineux after Chelsea lost 2-1 to Wolves who had a remarkable comeback.
Sarri blames Morata for Chelsea loss to Wolves
This would be Chelsea’s second loss in the English Premier League this season. They are now ten points behind leaders Manchester City whom they will be facing on Saturday.
Speaking on why Chelsea lost the game, Sarri told post match congress, “I don’t know about that. We could have scored four or five goals. We missed them,” talking about Morata.
“I don’t know, but I think it is more important to talk about our attitude, the first goal.
“We were not the same team. It was not for me. I have to understand why. Only for a goal. We had to play 35 minutes after that.
“If you had asked me the same question after 55 minutes I would say I was happy. We lost everything. It can happen, but I don’t think it. It was without reaction.
“I think that we played very well for 55 minutes. After the goal, it was an accident because we were in full control of the match.
“We were suddenly a different team, I don’t know why. I am really very worried, not for the result but for the fact we didn’t respond to the first goal.”
