Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 in London derby thriller

Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 in London derby thriller

Maurizio Sarri praised his players after their 3-2 victory over Arsenal but admitted their defensive shortcomings had been exposed.

However, Iwobi also suggested there was some confusion over the tactics as Arsenal fell behind quickly at Stamford Bridge, Pedro scoring in the ninth minute, and Alvaro Morata making it 2-0 soon after.

When asked whether he felt his side were ready to challenge for the Premier League title after back-to-back wins to start the new season, he offered this response: "Not in this moment, we did very well in the last 25 minutes but I think we have to work and I am not talking about the defenders, the defensive phase is the team".

"The 15 minutes at the end of the first half was awful". Chelsea gave me everything that I needed and now I have time to give back all that Chelsea give me. "We lost distances, we were not able to press or defend, we were really in trouble". "Just for one or two years, then I will start again". Otherwise, for us it is maybe a problem.

On the touch-line, Sarri, wearing a baggy blue T-shirt and track-suit pants, waved his arms in frustration as he implored his players to close Arsenal down in their own half as the Gunners showed signs of fighting their way into the game. I don't want to talk about it yet. But not in the other 15 minutes.
