Arsenal defeat exposes issues for Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea. PLUS: Real get revenge, Spurs' injury crisis

We gravitate towards simple explanations so the reason why Chelsea lost 2-0 away to Arsenal at the Emirates is simple: Maurizio Sarri played his two best players (N'Golo Kante and Eden Hazard) out of position. Easy, right? Wrong. For a start, Chelsea had no divine right to win at the Emirates, not when they were one place ahead of them in the table. Not when they'd actually beaten them just once in their seven previous encounters, and not when they hadn't played particularly well...

Sarri Rips Into Chelsea Players

A furious Maurizio Sarri laid into his Chelsea side after their 2-0 defeat at Arsenal on Saturday.
