Lacazette and Koscielny score in important win

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said his players are “extremely difficult to motivate” as he heavily criticised their performance in defeat at Arsenal. The Blues lost 2-0 in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium on Saturday and only had one shot on target.

Chelsea have only won two of their past five matches and are now just three points clear of the Gunners in fifth and sixth-placed Manchester United. “I’m really angry about the approach that we adopted today,” Sarri said. “It’s an approach we can’t really accept.”

In a remarkable news conference after the defeat, Sarri said he wanted to speak in his native Italian rather than English “because I want to send a message to my players and I want my message to be very clear”. “I have to say, I’m extremely angry. Very angry indeed,” said the 60-year-old, who succeeded compatriot Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge in the summer.

“This defeat was due to our mentality, more than anything else. This is something I can’t accept. “This group of players are extremely difficult to motivate.”
