Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has accepted that he and his players, are to blame for Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League.
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.
“From a technical point of view both teams were on the same sort of level, but they had a higher level of determination in both penalty areas, so tactics don’t come into it.
“I can’t possibly say I am not partly responsible for the defeat. We have to share it.
“This is not a team that is going to be well known for its battling qualities, but we need to become a team that is capable of adapting, possibly suffering for 10 or 15 minutes, and then playing our own football. Today we didn’t play our own football,” Sarri told Chelsea’s official website.
