Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal - The game in five pictures

Dennis Wise

All it took was a late Marcos Alonso drive to seal three points for the home team.

But Arsenal were allowed several clear chances towards the end of the first half, and Sarri was not completely happy by his side's performance.

England's Loftus-Cheek couldn't even make the bench, displaced by loan signing Mateo Kovacic, who came on to make his debut, and Sarri said: 'I prefer to have on the bench two wingers, and only one midfielder.

"I think the result is 3-2, but we also think we did chances to do more score".

"The defensive phase of all the team, all players".

"But we need to continue and press and press and press in the other half". "I am sure Eden will be with us for this season".

"Three points is an important target for us, we did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were disgusting", he stated.

But they had him craving one of his trademark cigarettes during a "horrible" 15 minutes when the Gunners forced their way back into a frenetic Premier League London derby. But I think that, at this moment, he's not able to play for 90 minutes so yesterday I thought it was better to give him 25-30 minutes when the intensity of the match has come down. "They had to work hard to answer what had happened in the final part of the first half".

"[Sarri] is the kind of manager who wants the ball, to control the ball". But we need to continue to press and press in the other half. So we were in trouble. In the second half, we played with two midfielders, 19 and 21 years old. Otherwise it might be a problem.

"In that hard period, we lost the distance between players".

But Alonso made no mistake with a tidy finish from close range after substitute Eden Hazard's run and pass across goal set up the victor.

The Belgian returned late following his nation's run to the third-place play-off in Russian Federation, and Sarri says he hopes Hazard will be ready to complete 90 minutes in the next fortnight latest. I expect a lot from him because, for me, he's a very great player.

"But I hope, one more week, maximum two weeks, he will be able to play for 90 minutes".
