"Three points is an important target for us, we did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were awful", he stated. However, now it looks like Chelsea are finally going to lose Eden Hazard with rumors of every big European club after the forward.

"I have two more years of contract and we will see what will happen. In the other moments if we are not able to press we are in trouble". Otherwise it might be a problem.

Sarri promised to bring "fun" to Chelsea when he was unveiled as Antonio Conte's replacement in July, having attracted acclaim for the expansive style of play he employed at Napoli.

It was Alonso who, in the 41st minute, got turned inside-out by Hector Bellerin and he passed to Arsenal's first goalscorer, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who was free to cross for Alex Iwobi to equalise.

"No, I needed half-time and the first half to end, not a cigarette", the Italian told reporters.

"But I think in the second half, since the beginning, we were the best team and it was deserved for us". For now, I'm happy.

Since then, Eden Hazard has made more than 250 appearances for the Blues scoring almost ninety goals and has even managed to win two Premier League titles, even being named in the Premier League team of the year on four separate occasions.

"Everybody knows what I have said after the World Cup".

On his first taste of the Premier League, Kovacic added: "Well, the tempo is higher, there is more space, but as I said it's not hard to adapt when you are surrounded by great players".

Arsenal coach Unai Emery, who also moved to London this summer to replace Arsene Wenger, said he took positives from the defeat.

"I think in the Premier League we don't have time [on the ball]".

"The most important thing is the way we play. It would be a bit odd for them to let me go and not recruit a player after".
