Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 in London derby thriller

Adjust Comment Print

Chelsea have started the Premier League season with two wins from two games but Maurizio Sarri is already contemplating a change.

Chelsea capitalised on a blistering beginning at Stamford Bridge with goals from Pedro and Alvaro Morata but let slip their advantage by conceding twice in the space of four minutes to Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi and were fortunate not to end the half behind as Arsenal missed several other gilt-edged chances.

And Sarri believes those defensive deficiencies showed Chelsea are far from the finished product capable of challenging favourites Manchester City and Liverpool for the title.

He said: "We are not title challengers, not in this moment".

Towards the end of the first half, though, Sarri's side allowed Arsenal a route back into the game.

"The team competed well today, had chances in the match and the young players are growing up with us".

Hazard started on the bench again, with Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri managing the winger's minutes after his World Cup exertions with Belgium. "We moved the ball very quickly, fast, we played vertical balls and we did really very well".

The win makes it two defeats out of two for Emery, with the Arsenal defence needing major work, while Granit Xhaka continues to labour in midfield. I think that the players were very good in the second half.

Chelsea have been negotiating a new deal with Hazard for some time, though he is yet to sign, causing some fans to fear that he will run down his contract to force through a move just as Thibaut Courtois has done.

And the 27-year-old has now suggested he is ready to play, saying: "It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench, but the boys when they are playing they did well so I am just happy for the win". "The squad is phenomenal with many great players; that's why it wasn't so hard to adapt quick".
