Nuno's side are now on a bad run of form and have found results hard to come by in the Premier League, despite a fine start to the season.

Sarri has been unwavering in his insistence that Chelsea are not title contenders this season, but he downplayed the suggestion that the manner of this defeat could have a negative effect on his team ahead of the City game.

'He's clever on the pitch and in midfield he's one of the best in the world, we all know that.

"I think it's more important to talk about our attitude after the first goal", he said.

It leaves Chelsea in fourth spot in Maurizio Sarri's first season in charge, ten points off City in top spot.

The score might've only been 1-0 - thanks to a deflected effort from Ruben Loftus-Cheek - but Chelsea were looking pretty comfortable at the break.

Wolves produced a stunning second-half turnaround as two quickfire goals earned a shock 2-1 victory over Chelsea to end a six-match winless run in the Premier League.

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.

Maurizio Sarri's side also face MOL Vidi in the Europa League group stages and Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup quarter-final.

It lifted Wolves up to 12th and was their first win for two months after five defeats in their previous six games.

"Of course I am disappointed", Sarri said.

"After the first [Wolves] goal - that was an accident because we were in full control of the match - we were suddenly another team, without the right distances, without our football".

"We worked hard and got the result but we have a long way to go".

Chelsea (9-4-1) enters the contest third in the league standings with 31 points captured through 14 matches played.
