Chelsea suffered our heaviest defeat in Premier League history when we lost 6-0 at Manchester City on Sunday. Before the loss against Manchester City, Chelsea were humiliated 4-0 at Bournemouth.

Former Premier League defender Jamie Carragher insists Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is right to criticize the players for lacking motivation.

While analyzing Chelsea’s 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Monday Night Football, Carragher said Chelsea’s lack of intensity while pressing made Bournemouth look like Brazil.

“This is Chelsea again pressing from the front, all over the place,” Carragher said.

“This is at 0-0, one minute into the second half of the game.

“We’re not talking about a disorganised team who are all over the place.

“This is Bournemouth. They make Bournemouth look like Brazil.

“So there’s actually six players around the ball tight and you think ‘how are you going to get out of that?’.

“So they’re not in a bad position, that’s good, you’d be happy as a coach.

“Where’s the aggression? Where’s the challenge? One, two and they’re out.

“Why isn’t [David] Luiz absolutely just going tight, even putting a bad challenge in? Win that ball.

“Where’s the intensity?

“When you hear Sarri talk about a lack of motivation, this is what he’s talking about.”
