Sarri backs his players after yesterday disappointing results.


Maurizio Sarri has backed his players after snatching a late draw at home to Giant Killers, Wolves.

Wolves defeated Chelsea in the first leg and almost did same yesterday until Hazard had to pull something in the dying embers of the game.

The Blues appeared to be heading for a home defeat at Stamford Bridge, with Raul Jimenez scoring the game’s only goal heading into stoppage time.

But Hazard came to his side’s rescue in the 92nd minute, firing home from the top of the box to give Chelsea a share of the spoils.

Sarri said he believed that his players were hindering the effectiveness of Jorginho, who looks to control play for the Blues from the middle of the pitch.

“Jorginho, if the other players do not move without the ball, is in trouble, because he is really very able to play with one touch,” Sari said.

“Hazard is a great player, he can solve this situation, but during the match was like the other players. He needs more movement without the ball.”
