Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reveals what went wrong with plan against Liverpool

Marcos Alonso and Mohamed Salah

Games against Cardiff, Huddersfield, Newcastle are to come before their final match of the season at home to Wolves. It was a really, really outstanding finish. We play our game.

"But they are such a hard side to play against".

"For a month in the Premier League, we knew it would be nearly impossible - possible, but very hard - if we dropped points". 97 (possible). Let's try. "If that's enough, perfect, and if not, we can not change it". And we didn't lose it here or there or whatever.

"Very smart people say "if you'd won at Leicester you'd be champions" and stuff like this but it's all b*******".

At one point in the second half, Chelsea failed to convert a unsafe attack sparked by a similar slip from Andy Robertson, and Klopp claimed the incident should draw a line under Gerrard's error.


Coincidentally former captain Gerrard, who is now Rangers manager, visited Liverpool's training ground on Friday. "We can expect very unusual results in last month, because we are tiring like all the other teams". "Robbo (Andy Robertson) slipped and nothing happened, so it's not a Liverpool thing".

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri was forced into a change, introducing Gonzalo Higuain and moving Eden Hazard from a false nine role into his usual position on the left, which brought immediate results.

Sarri said: "Liverpool are one of the best teams in Europe at this moment".

"We played a good match against wonderful opponents", he told Sky Sports. "I had never seen physical data like that from Slavia, they lead you to play draining games and something may have been missed here, but this is the Europa League".

"The title will probably depend on the ball hitting a post and going in, or staying out", he said. "Two or three months ago we would not have done".
