Maurizio Sarri admits he warned his Chelsea players they had big problems in the build-up to their 3-1 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.

Chelsea suffered their first defeat under Sarri as Spurs ran out comfortable winners at Wembley.

Early goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane were well-deserved for Spurs fast start, while Heung-Min Son put the hosts three ahead with a sublime solo effort.

Olivier Giroud pulled a goal back for Chelsea with five minutes remaining but Sarris side looked disjointed in attack and all over the place in defence.

I knew very well that we had lots of problems to solve, Sarri said after the game.

I think today it was clear for everybody.

I hope for the players because I told them in the last week that we had big problems with our approach to the match. Today was the same approach.

We played very badly from the physical point of view, mentally, technically and tactically.
