Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has admitted that Arsenal were more “mentally determined” than his players, following their 2-0 defeat on Saturday evening.
Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny scored the goals in the first half, as the Gunners claimed all three points at the Emirates.
The Blues finished the game with only one shot on target and hardly troubled Unai Emery’s team, despite having superior possession.
“We played against a team who were more mentally determined then we were and this is something I can’t accept,” Sarri told Sky Sports.
Speaking further on mentality of Chelsea players, the Italian said:
“They don’t have that ferocity and it’s something that is difficult to change.”
