Prem's talking points: 'No more Mr Nice Sarri'
Darren Wells of the Mirror has named Chelsea boss who publicly criticised his players on Saturday among 10 main talking points of the past Premier League weekend.
No more Mr Nice Sarri
"The quirky Italian may not be the first Chelsea manager in recent times to wonder about his players' desire - but his public outburst immediately after a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal was still extraordinary.
"Speaking in his native tongue 'to send a message to my players and I want my message to be very clear', Sarri said: 'This defeat was due to our mentality, more than anything else. This is something I can't accept. This group of players are extremely difficult to motivate.'
"How senior figures in the dressing room respond to such a broadside may define Sarri's tenure at Stamford Bridge. Next week's Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Tottenham could make for compelling viewing."
