The specter of Manchester City’s dominance looms over its competitors setbacks.
Maurizio Sarri knows this, and was left frustrated after his Chelsea side tossed away and early lead and could not answer the hosts’ power in a 2-1 loss Wednesday at the Molineux on Wednesday.

Chelsea has now claimed just four of the last 12 points available, dropping 10 points back of City (and level with fifth place Arsenal).
“Manchester City are in another category. We have to play and to fight to be in the top four. The result is very difficult for this, because I know in every match you have to gain points. In the last championship in Italy I lost Serie A with 91 points, so I know very well you have to gain points in every match.”
Sarri said that City may be the best team in the world, and he has to know that anything other than ending the leaders’ undefeated season on Saturday at Stamford Bridge likely spells the end of their hopes at a title run in his first season in charge of the Blues.
