Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri has insisted that they are a step behind Manchester City and Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title this season.
Manchester City moved two points clear on the table, but Chelsea are being backed to challenge for the title.
“When I arrive the gap from last season as 30 points with City. It is difficult to think you can recover this gap in one season, in six months.
“We need to improve more because we are doing well. We need to improve from a tactical point of view.
“In the first 15 minutes of the second half we were not compact. In the defensive phase, we need to improve.
“When we can’t cover the ball in the opponent’s half, we are in trouble. So we need to improve.”
