Sarri: I didn't attack Chelsea players during 50-minute dressing room inquest

Sarri: I didn't attack Chelsea players during 50-minute dressing room inquest

The defeat sees Chelsea drop out of the top four, but the Sarri said he "thought" they were good enough to qualify for next season's Champions League.

He explained his decision by saying he "needed to understand" the performance and why the first and second halves were "so different". I don't understand why. Doucoure has blossomed into a brilliant midfielder and has exactly the right type of physical and technical level required to thrive in the Premier League. They have to be patient with us as we are trying to do something great.

The Frenchman has been directly involved in eight goals so far in the Premier League to highlight his attacking qualities, while he provides defensive cover too with his brilliant work-rate.

Criticism of Sarri's methods intensified after Wednesday's 4-0 thrashing at Bournemouth, with some travelling fans confronting him outside the stadium after the game.

"Of course, I hope the opposite".

"Maybe it's my fault, maybe I'm not able to motivate them".

Firstly, they are upset with Sarri's tendency to slate his players in the media.

Sarri is facing growing questions about his tactics and motivational ability just halfway through his first season in charge.

So it was telling that in a recent interview with France Football magazine, Hazard was quoted as saying: "In my career I have frustrated all of my trainers. So I am frustrated", he said.

The 10-0 vote on the decision held the target range for the federal funds rate at 2.25 per cent to 2.5 per cent. The Fed raised rates four times last year and signaled in December that it would do so twice this year.

But they were picked off after the break as Joshua King scored twice, either side of a goal for David Brooks.

Chelsea are only behind Arsenal, who climbed to fourth in the table after a win over Cardiff City on Tuesday, due to an inferior goal difference.

"What I saw in the first half, there was the possibility to solve the problem", Sarri said.

Sarri also apologised to the club's supporters for the midweek display. But not with that kind of reaction.

"I don't want to change something that isn't working, I want to see it play well and then we look to change something. We had assumed that we learned a certain style of football, but the truth is we never did learn it and are paying the consequences", he said.

We haven't even learned the most basic moves yet.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe revealed his side's game-plan was to put pressure on Jorginho, Chelsea's deep-lying midfielder. Then we can change something.

Blues manager Sarri believes that complacency is one of the player's weaknesses. To be fair to Sarri, it worked really well for Hazard's fellow Belgian Dries Mertens.
