Maurizio Sarri highlights the one area that is still ‘dangerous’ for his Chelsea side

Maurizio Sarri might be unbeaten this season but the Chelsea boss is still not happy with one element of his side that he insists is becoming ‘dangerous’.

While the Blues are just two points off the Premier League front runners and have kept five clean sheets from their ten games so far, the Italian is still demanding that his players must do better defensively.

With a completely changed goalkeeper and back four against Derby County on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup, the Blues were all over the place at times and the Rams should have scored more than just the two chances that they converted.

The Blues are certainly heading in the right direction under the Italian but Sarri insists there is still a key area for them to be working on.

“No, no. In the last match against Derby they played a very good match. I think we played well in the offensive phase, many mistakes in the defensive phase.

“It is clear that we have to improve in the defensive phase. I am used in the first months to have problems like this. At Burnley I saw a very good performance defensively and three days after I saw a lot of mistakes.

“It means we are not a solid team at the moment with continuity, it is dangerous.”
