Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has ruled out any chance his team may have of winning the Premier League this season following their shock 1-0 defeat to Leicester City

A Jaime Vardy second-half goal at Stamford Bridge was enough to hand Chelsea a third defeat in their past six league games.

It leaves the Blues 11 points adrift of unbeaten leaders Liverpool in fourth-place with Arsenal, who beat Burnley 3-1, only behind on goal difference.

But Sarri has now claimed that Chelsea never stood a chance of winning the Premier League this season anyway, despite going their first 11 games without defeat.

Top 5 – Things learned from the midweek Premier League games

With the Premier League closing in on the finish line we enjoyed several games in midweek so that some teams could catch up.

“It was impossible from the beginning of the season,” Sarri told BBC.

“As I said at the beginning of the Premier League it is impossible to catch Liverpool and Manchester City, we have to be careful to stay close to the first four positions.”

Meanwhile, German defender Antonio Rudiger labelled the defeat on Saturday as a “disaster”.

Sarri’s side will next travel to Watford on Boxing Day.
