The manager states it was clear from the start the game would be out of reach 

The Italian names poor mentality, technique & tactics as the reason for the defeat

After losing 1-3 to Mauricio Pochettino's side, Maurizio Sarri has commented on what became the reason for the humiliation in the first minutes of the game. He has already mentioned the club's problems with the slow starts. That time The Blues' head coach blamed it all for the mental problems. This time it's different.

For fuck sake. Fuming. Awful, awful, awful chelsea. Didn’t get anywhere near them today. Deserved loss, by a mile.

The manager says Chelsea's poor form didn't come as a surprise to him: "It is clear. I knew very well that we had lots of problems to solve. I think today it was clear for everybody. I hope for the players because I told them in the last week that we had big problems with our approach to the match. Today was the same approach."

Sarri's got three matches to figure out a Plan B for the Man City game.
If Chelsea are set up the same against City then it's not individual players who should get the blame.
That's life in the Premier League.
Recall Conte making rapid changes at 3-0 down v Arsenal etc etc etc

It didn't take long for the Italian to name all the difficulties the team is facing at the moment: "We played very badly from the physical point of view, mentally, technically (especially first 25 minutes and tactically. We have lots of problems to solve. I knew it well before the match. It is clear for everybody and, I hope, for the players."

That was a disappointing game. Could see how Spurs set up to get at us right from the off!

Chelsea will play against Fulham at Stamford Bridge in the next match of the Premier League. However, the Blues have to try their best against PAOK in the Europa League. Since our team has already qualified for the playoffs, our manager is likely to let some young players step onto The Bridge pitch next Thursday.
