Hazard ‘won’t go’ this year; Chelsea title threat?

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has reiterated that he is "happy" at Stamford Bridge and has no intention of leaving before the end of the month.

Sarri admitted his side suffered a "horrible" 15 minutes which could have cost them dear.

And Hazard said: "Everybody knows what I said after the World Cup".

Sarri will no doubt work on Chelsea's defensive deficiencies in training this week and he also took the opportunity to announce another, more personal attempt at improvement.

Kovacic was pleased with his Chelsea debut and is surely in contention to start against Newcastle next weekend. "If we press very high we are able to do well, but in the other moments when we are not able to press in the other half we are in trouble". "It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench", said Hazard.

Hazard set up Marcos Alonso with 10 minutes to go to make it two wins from two Premier League games for new boss Maurizio Sarri. I still have two years of the contract and we will see what happens.




"The reaction after the 2-0 is very good".

'We have a squad of 23 players and everyone in the squad needs to be ready to show the manager that they deserve a spot.

Abysmal defending from Arsenal saw Chelsea rush into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Pedro and Alvaro Morata.

But such was the strength of Arsenal's rally they could have scored six before the interval, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang particularly guilty, blasting one chance over with the goal at his mercy.

The Armenian made amends to spark Arsenal's fightback eight minutes before the break, though, with a fiercely struck low shot that had too much power for the world's most expensive goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga.

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.
