Maurizio Sarri admits he is concerned by how his Chelsea players responded to conceding against Wolves as they squandered their lead on Wednesday night.

The Blues went ahead through Ruben Loftus-Cheek and were in control against an out-of-form Wolves side, but second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota flipped the game on its head.

It was Chelsea’s second Premier League defeat in three games, having previously been unbeaten, and Sarri admits he is worried by how easily his team wilted.

The Italian explained: ‘I think that we played very well for 55 minutes. After the first goal, the 1-1, having been in full control of the match, we were suddenly another team.

‘Without the right distances, without our football. I don’t know why.

‘But I am really very worried, not for the result but for the fact that we did not react to the first goal of the opponents. We didn’t react at all. So I am really very worried for this, not for the result.’

Willian felt he had been fouled in the build-up to Wolves’ winner, but Sarri was not interested, continuing: ‘I think it’s more important to talk about our attitude after the first goal.

‘We were not the same team as before. We went longer, we were not comfortable, we were wider, without the right distances between players. Another team.

‘So I don’t want to discuss if there was a foul on Willian or not. It’s not important to me.

‘I have to understand why the team suddenly was another team, only for a goal, for an accident, because we were in control of the match. We had to play 30, 35 minutes. It wasn’t a big problem.’
