• Chelsea face Malmö in Europa League on Thursday
• Manager says ‘a mind problem’ was behind 6-0 defeat by City
Maurizio Sarri and his beleaguered Chelsea players held an hour-long inquest this week into the humiliating defeat at Manchester City on Sunday, with the head coach putting that six-goal drubbing down to his squad’s mental fragility.
The Italian’s side now face a critical tie with Malmö in the last 32 of the Europa League, before daunting domestic fixtures in league and cups against Manchester United, City and Tottenham, as they attempt to arrest recent desperate form. Marcos Alonso, who endured a torrid afternoon against the champions and was culpable in the lack of marking for City’s opening goal, has been omitted from the travelling squad, though Sarri claimed he had been rested rather than dropped.
