Maurizio Sarri has urged Chelsea’s defence to improve after they put up an average performance in the 1 nil win over Videoton in the Europa League.

Morata scored the winner on the night and this enabled the Blues to garner all 3 points although the visitors had chances to put Chelsea to the sword.

Emerson Palmieri cleared a header off the line in the opening minutes.

The likes of Loic Nego and substitute Istvan Kovacs came close to scoring although Kepa was on hand to thwart some attempts with some spectacular saves.

“It was very hard,” Sarri said. “In the first half, we had opportunities to score, we didn’t take them and so in the second half it was very hard.

“It was an important three points, we created a lot of opportunities, but we conceded some to our opponents. We have to do better in the defensive phase and avoid counter-attacks.”
