Maurizio Sarri has called for his Chelsea players to step up like leaders against Manchester City as the Italian admitted changing the mentality of his squad has been a "difficult" task.

Chelsea trail league leaders City by 10 points after the Blues threw away a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 away to Wolves in midweek - the club's second consecutive defeat on the road following the international break.

Sarri admitted the loss to Wolves was down, in part, to his side failing to manage games because of a lack of determination from his players.

"We need to have a collective target, we need determination, at the moment they are stronger than us, but our final target is to be the best in Europe.

Pep Guardiola's side are still unbeaten in the Premier League in spite of the duo's recent absence through injury, and Sarri admitted City are better than Chelsea right now - although the Italian insisted "anything can happen" on Saturday.

When you change the way of playing to need to change the way of mentality, of 25 minds.

"I think we have a problem to manage the match at the moment, we have played well for 55 minutes but then in the first difficulty we had a blackout," Sarri told reporters at Cobham on Friday.
