Arsenal's familiar failings as Chelsea inflict more misery on Unai Emery

Aubameyang Kepa Bellerin Hazard

Marcos Alonso's late strike proved decisive after Arsenal had fought back from two goals down, but Sarri tempered any talk of challenging for the championship by suggesting he still had plenty of work to do.

"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".

"[Sarri] is the kind of manager who wants the ball, to control the ball". Otherwise, for us it is maybe a problem. "We need to give the players calm and continue working".

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.

At that point, the Gunners were clearly in the ascendency and waster further clear chances to go ahead for the first time in the match.

If Kepa could have been questioned for the first goal he has conceded in English football after an 80 million euro move from Athletic Bilbao, he was helpless as Arsenal equalised four minutes later when Iwobi smashed home Mkhitaryan's cross.

'I enjoyed the match for 75 minutes.

"We have to improve because we did really well in the first 25 minutes today, but we need to continue to press in the other half".

He said: "He is a great player but in this moment he's not able to play for 90 minutes".

Chelsea clinched the win when Marcos Alonso became their third Spaniard to score, converting a cross from substitute Eden Hazard who came on as a substitute in the 81st minute. But he said Hazard would probably be ready to play 90 minutes within one or two weeks.

Arsene Wenger's departure at the end of last season may have been long overdue, but it was a shock to Arsenal's system nonetheless and Emery must find a way to quickly breathe new life and inspiration into a team previously coached by one man for over two decades.

"I think we have to work, improve in the basics and I'm not talking about only the defenders".
