Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was irritated by the action of one of the Blues’ defender during the clash against Arsenal in the Premier League at the Emirate Stadium on Saturday, according to reports in The Times.
Andreas Christensen left the bench for the dressing room with 25 minutes remaining in the clash, an act which vexed Sarri and he subsequently slammed the Dane and the players after their defeat to the Gunners.

Christensen was an unused substitute in the game against Arsenal and he is dejected for lack of playing time under Sarri at the Stamford Bridge.
After Sarri made all the substitutions and it meant the Denmark international would not play, he left for the dressing room, The report claims that Christensen told Chelsea’s players on the bench that he was going to the toilet, but instead of returning he stayed in the dressing room and Sarri is ‘unimpressed by his lack of professionalism’.
Christensen always made one Premier League appearance so far this season, which was the 2-1 defeat against Wolves in December and since then he has been left out of the squad for eight times.
