Arsenal boss Unai Emery: This is why Gunners lost to Chelsea

Can Sarri mastermind victory over Arsenal

"He's a very good offensive player, but he has improved in the defensive phase in the last two years in Madrid". They improve. I am happy without the result'. I know we need to push the players to work.

After the break the Blues has more control, and the double introduction of Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovacic turned the game in their favour. We need to be more compact. But also they had options, chances to score and effectivity (sic) is the difference.

"I want better balance between the attacking and defensive moments". "Today I'm happy with him because he worked".

Sarri admitted his side's defensive display as they surrendered a 2-0 lead was "horrible", as the Italian offered up this honest assessment of a insane game. Three points is an important target for us, we did very well for 75 minutes but, inside that, 15 minutes were disgusting. We were unable to cover the lost balls and press like a team, so we were really in trouble, but I think the players were really very good because at 2-2 it was not easy with Arsenal.

"In that hard period, we lost the distance between players". So we were in trouble.


"In the first half we are creating chances to score, and for that I am happy, I am in the match thinking we are [doing] well on the pitch". Otherwise, for us it may be a problem. I want to play and have the ball at my feet.

Chelsea FC have won successive Premier League games over Huddersfield Town and Arsenal to make a promising start to Sarri's reign.

Chelsea dominated much of the second half despite Emery making a tactical half-time substitution to bring on new signing Lucas Torreira for Granit Xhaka, who had struggled up to that point.

"It was very, very hard because we lost the distances between the players and we were unable to cover the lost balls and press like a team, so we were really in trouble".
