The Italian admitted neither he or his players knew how they had lost the game at Goodison Park
Maurzio Sarri admitted Chelsea were in a bit of trouble after losing to Everton.
Goals from Richarlison and Glyfi Sigurdsson condemned the Blues to a 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park to seriously dent their Champions League hopes.
Sarri cut a frustrated figure on the touchline After only just managing to draw against Wolves last weekend, the Blues knew they had to keep pace with rivals Manchester United and Arsenal.
But Sarri was left stunned as his side were denied by an inspired Jordan Pickford before being stung twice in the second half.
And now, the Italian admits their top four hopes are dangling precariously by a thread.
He said: “Today was a really very important match for us so now we are a little bit in trouble.
The Everton players congratulate Gyfli Sigurdsson after tapping in his saved penalty “But, we have to play eight matches and so we have to fight for our possibilities.
“We can do it, we can do everything in the right way and in the wrong way.”
Pickford twice denied on-loan striker Gonzalo Higuain with two smart saves down to his near post.
After a turbulent week following an atrocious performance at Newcastle, the England No.1 continued to repel everything Chelsea could muster.
Sarri appeared to be feeling the strain during the game at Goodison Park And former Napoli boss Sarri is adamant his side deserved something from the game.
“At the moment, I cannot explain,” he replied when asked how Chelsea lost the game.
“Because we played really very well in the first half, probably the best 45 minutes of the season.
“We could have scored in five different situations. And then, at the beginning of the second half, we stopped to play without defending.
