Angry Maurizio Sarri rounded on his over-confident Chelsea stars after their title hopes suffered another major blow with a 1-2 defeat at Wolves. Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota struck in four second half minutes to stun the visitors who now sit 10 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek's deflected opener had put the visitors in control before they slipped to a second straight away defeat after gifting Wolves a way back. Chelsea, who sit fourth, host leaders City on Saturday and Sarri was annoyed at their complacency.

I am really very worried for this, not for the result."
