Alan Shearer has lashed out at Chelsea team following their 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
Shearer believes Tottenham could have beaten Chelsea “by six or seven”.
Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son scored for Spurs before Olivier Giroud headed in a late consolation.
The loss ended the Blues’ unbeaten start to this campaign and Sarri admits he always knew there were problems to sort out.
“I knew very well we had a lot of problems to solve, and today it was clear for everybody to see,” he told Chelsea TV, before adding that their approach to the start of the game was again an issue.
“We have to try to do something because the defensive phase was a disaster today. The offensive players pressed badly, the midfield defended not very well, and the defensive line was a disaster.”
Sarri also said Tottenham were the better team – all 11 players out of 11.
Meanwhile, Shearer loved Tottenham’s performance, but there was one Chelsea player that drew his ire – David Luiz.
Shearer said: “They dominated Chelsea for 90 minutes and ruthlessly exploited that back four, it should have been six, possibly seven with the chances they missed.
“Kane, Alli and Son ran them ragged, exposed them, pulled them into positions they didn’t want to go.
“One thing you can’t do is let Harry Kane have that much space and just look at what David Luiz does – he gets out of the way of the ball, I thought centre-halves were meant to get in the way of the ball and try and stop it? The keeper is poor also.
