Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insists his side can not be considered as Premier League title contenders just yet, despite Saturday's thrilling win over Arsenal.

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. We have to improve in the defensive phase, and I'm not talking about only the defenders.

"We had chances to do more.in the first half, I think we need to control the second half better". "We need to give the players calm and continue working".

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. They improve and are continuing.

But still, it is important to make a positive start at a new job and Sarri has bought himself crucial time by guiding his new team to six points from six in their first two games.

Eden Hazard again started on the bench for Chelsea as he continues his return to fitness following an extended break after the World Cup.

"In that hard period, we lost the distance between players".

"Yesterday I thought it was better for 25, 30 minutes when the intensity of the match is going down".

"I think the players were really very good because at 2-2 it was not easy with Arsenal".

"We did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were terrible", Sarri said. "In the other 15 it was better to smoke, I think", Sarri, who is a heavy smoker, said.

"If we want to defend by looking only at the ball we need to stay very compact and 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".

'I enjoyed the match for 75 minutes. But he said Hazard would probably be ready to play 90 minutes within one or two weeks. But, at the other moments, when we are not able to press in the other half, we are in trouble.
