Chelsea lost 1-0 to Leicester City at Stamford Bridge today with Jamie Vardy scoring the only goal of the game in the 51st minute.
Sarri had previously complained about the players’ lack of concentration and motivation for the full 90 minutes of games and following the loss against Leicester, Sarri expressed concern over Chelsea’s strange reaction to going a goal behind.
“I think we played very well for 55 minutes, we played very good football,” Sarri told reporters after the 1-0 loss.
“After the goal the reaction was, for me, a strange reaction, not in the right direction, not as a team but as 11 different players and so it was very strange.
“I think we could have done better in the reaction. We only had to continue to play as in the first part of the match, there was time to score without a reaction as a team shocked, as a team in mental confusion.”
When then asked why the players had failed to react adequately to Vardy’s goal, Sarri replied: “I don’t know.
“If I knew I would have solved the problem before this match. It’s difficult to understand because we have players with lots of experience.”
