Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has admitted a Premier League top-four finish will be “impossible” if they do not improve.
Despite being dominant in the first half, the capital club lost 2-0 at Everton on Sunday and damaged their hopes of a top-four finish, although Sarri has not given up yet.
The result keeps Chelsea three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, and, though Sarri was enthused by his side’s first-half display, he lamented their fragile mentality thereafter.
However, the Chelsea head coach refused to write off their hopes of finishing in the Champions League places, telling reporters: “It’s not impossible, why impossible? “We need to recover only three points so it’s not impossible in eight matches.
It’s impossible if we are not able to improve, if we are not able to avoid a second half like that. “We need only to play like in the first half for the next eight matches.
“We played probably the best 45 minutes of the season then suddenly, at the beginning of the second half, we stopped playing. “I don’t know why.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
