#2 The lack of intensity after conceding

While Leicester's extremely compact and organised set up made it hard to create clear-cut chances, Chelsea's first-half performance was largely impressive. The Blues kept the ball for large periods and were extremely efficient in winning it back. However, everything changed the minute Leicester scored.

There was a visible lack of intensity as Chelsea tried to find an equaliser. The reaction to trailing was extremely similar to the one in the defeat to Wolves earlier this month. On both occasions, Chelsea lost their organisation and did not look anywhere close to Sarri's philosophy. The team's negative reaction to an adverse moment is slowly becoming an issue of big concern.

Whether it's an issue of mentality or just about learning the system is something for Sarri to recognise. But the responsibilities lie with players, and they need to have a look at themselves and step up their game. The lack of urgency while chasing the game is simply unacceptable.
