While we are still basking in the 2-0 victory over champions Manchester City, we might have to look back at the defeat against Wolves.

Chelsea lost to Wolves last week at the Molineux Stadium despite having taken the lead in the game. Ruben Loftus-Cheek gave Chelsea an early lead but two quick fire second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota gave the hosts victory.

The Blues were on a poor run away from home, and the result meant Chelsea have suffered back-to-back away league defeats after having lost to Tottenham at Wembley.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger Rudiger has now revealed that Sarri didn’t take the defeat lightly and was ‘going crazy’ immediately after the game but regained his composure just in time to turn the players’ attentions to Saturday’s clash with Manchester City.

“After the Wolves game, he (Sarri) was terrifying,” Rudiger told the Evening Standard.

“He was going crazy. But that was okay because we shouldn’t have lost this match. ‘The day after [the telling-off], [Sarri] was very calm and clear-minded.

“He spoke with us and made it clear that we have to believe in ourselves. He wanted us to go into the City game looking for the win.”
