  • Newcastle interested in loan deal for Loftus-Cheek

A loss to Wolves could be good for Chelsea players who have "too much confidence", according to Maurizio Sarri.

Wolverhampton Wanderers end their six-match winless run in the Premier League with a 2-1 comeback victory over Chelsea at Molineux.

Sarri feels the defeat to Wolves may help Chelsea as he praised Pep Guardiola's high-flying City. He is joined in the centre by Loftus-Cheek, who deserves a go from the beginning in the Premier League.

The result saw Sarri's side slide to fourth in the table, 10 points behind champions Manchester City ahead of their clash with the league leaders on Saturday.

"We train every day as a team and we should expect to play well whoever plays", he said.

"I am really very anxious, not for the result but the fact that after the first goal we conceded we did not react very well". Maybe it was for the result, but not for me.

"I think everybody enjoyed it", he said.

"After the first goal, which was an accident because we were in full control of the match, we were suddenly a different team, I don't know why".

"It depends on the mentality of the team, I think. You can lose a match but not without a reaction".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek's deflected effort gave the Blues the lead after 18 minutes.

Ryan Bennett and Willy Boly produced similarly heroic last-ditch challenges to deny Willian and Alvaro Morata either side of the break, and those interventions took on added importance as Wolves struck twice in quick succession around the hour through Jimenez and Jota.

Ruben Neves will be absent as he needs to serve a suspension, leaving Nuno Espirito Santo short of arguably his best player.

Wolves then turned the match on its head by scoring a second just four minutes later, with a low cross from Matt Doherty being tapped in at the back post by Diogo Jota.

The young midfielder could develop his game with a ball-playing team like Wolves and he would bolster Nuno's squad in the short-term.
