Maurizio Sarri has said that Chelsea could be “dangerous to themselves”.
The Blues survived a few late waves of attack from Brighton as they went onto win their last match against the Seagulls.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said that Chelsea could be “dangerous to themselves” if they don’t improve their performance in the future. The Blues won their last match against Brighton by 2-1, as Pedro and Eden Hazard scored the goals for Chelsea. However, the Seagulls showed a late resurgence after a 66th-minute strike from Solly March found the back of the opposition net but Sarri’s men withstood it to clinch their 11th win of the season in the Premier League.
The Chelsea boss said, “I think we could have won better because we played very well for 60 minutes,” he added, “We conceded a goal in a moment in which we were in full control of the match, and so, in my mind, it was clear in that moment that we have to suffer in the last five minutes with the long balls into the box.”
Sarri also said, “We are not a physical team. With the substitutions, I tried to have a more physical impact for the last five minutes, but it was clear it was really very difficult in the last five minutes. We could have won better. I think that when we have the feeling of being in full control of the match, we are dangerous for ourselves. Suddenly the level of application and attention is lowered. The feeling when we are in confidence, when we are sure of being in control of the match, is dangerous for us.”
