Maurizio Sarri says he has predicted problems at Chelsea this season and has invited his players not to suffer another "black-out" as against the Wolves.

"I think we have a problem handling the game at the moment", said Sarri. "In the last two games we played well for 55, 60 minutes but then, at the first difficulty, we went crazy.

"The first match we were lucky because they did not score. In the last game, we were a bit unlucky because, for the opponents, there are five shots and only two on goal, and we have conceded two goals. But, after the first goal, we entered the blackout and we were not able to react ".

On the City, which has 10 points ahead of Chelsea in the Premier League, Sarri said: "The game, for us, is really very important.

"You know very well that it's a very difficult game against, perhaps, the best team in Europe at the moment, so we know very well that it's very difficult.

"It's impossible to beat them for a long time, of course, right now, but in a game, anything can happen.

"It is very difficult to recover the gap. I do not know the difference at the moment. We started very well, this season, but now we have to face some difficulties. I think it's normal

"Sooner or later, it is normal to have some difficulty in a new way of playing. It's normal. We must work, we must try to solve the problem by problem, day after day. And to improve permanently. & # 39;
