"We did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were disgusting", Sarri said.

Former Chelsea FC defender Melchiot lavished praise on Hazard for his impressive cameo against Arsenal. We need to improve and I hope we will be able to play 90 minutes like the first 25 in a few months'.

The second half was a less choatic affair but the introduction of Eden Hazard sparked Chelsea again.

He added: "It's hard because we've changed a lot of things".

Chelsea FC have a 100 per cent record under Sarri in the Premier League so far after scoring six goals in victories over Huddersfield Town and Arsenal.

"No, not in this moment", he said when asked if his side were among the favourites.


Chelsea beat City to the signing of Jorginho to reunite the Italian global with Sarri after three seasons together at Napoli and he is already becoming key to Sarri's change of system at Stamford Bridge.

'We did really very well in the first 25 minutes today.

He played down talk of Chelsea contesting the title, despite winning their first two games of the season, saying his side needed to learn to keep up their tempo.

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.

Arsenal then missed another sitter, this time when Mkhitaryan blazed over after being set up by Iwobi.

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. In the ninth minute Pedro finished off slick move started by Jorginho to put Gunners to the sword early.
