It is no doubt a disturbing moment for Chelsea boss as he is yet to get over his team’s defeat against Everton on Sunday.

The defeat has now limited their chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season as they sit the sixth position in the Premier League table.

In his reaction, the Blues boss said he is worried about the mentality of the players, citing it as the reason for their defeat against Everton. He explained that his team played their best 45 minutes so far but it suddenly changed, suggesting that they are suffering from a mental block.

He added that the issue with the team is not a physical problem because it wouldn’t have happened in a rush as it did against Everton.

However, Maurizio Sarri who would have loved to have explanations from the players said they will not be able to do that because they are all disappointed and down at the moment.

The defeat remains a setback to the Italian boss and that could be enough reason to get the season down and go without a trophy this season and a Champions League qualification.

Meanwhile, there are fears over the future of the Chelsea boss as he could be sacked any moment from now.
