Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri doesn’t believe Chelsea are equipped to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the title this season despite Chelsea subjecting Manchester City to their first defeat of the season in the league.
Goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz helped Chelsea bounce back from the midweek defeat against Wolves to move within eight points of new leaders Liverpool.
“Of course yes, because as I said always I think that it’s impossible to cover this gap in one season,” Sarri said.
“One match you can play but in the competition of ten months it’s difficult to cover the gap and at the moment they are they best team in Europe.
“We won today but we must say we were a bit lucky in the first 25 minutes because they could score so a bit lucky in the first half and a very good second half.
“I think we have a team with some difficulties to be motivated and in this matches it’s easy to have great motivation and level of determination and right level of pressing but then during the season you must play with a small team and for example, the next match we have to go to Brighton and there will be three points so we need to continue with all of those otherwise we can win this game and then lose points at other matches.”
