Chelsea have a difficult clash against league leaders Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Chelsea have suffered against City in recent games, and the Blues’ last win against City was in a league meeting at Stamford Bridge in April 2017.
Including this summer’s pre-season game, Chelsea have lost the last three games to Manchester City.
Maurizio Sarri’s side will be up against a dominant City side who are yet to lose a game in the league, while the Blues have lost two of their last three league games.
Speaking of Chelsea’s poor form in recent games, Sarri has bemoaned the team’s lack of leadership as a reason for the struggles.
Sarri said: “It is not easy to answer, but I have seen in the last matches we didn’t react as a team or eleven players, so it is a big problem.
“We need a leader and a collective target can give us determination. In some matches we have lacked it, like in the last match.
“I think we have a problem to manage the match at the moment, we have played well for 55 minutes but then in the first difficulty we had a blackout.
“We were a little unlucky, because the opponents (Wolves) only had two on target. We were not able to react.”
