Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 in London derby thriller

New Chelsea boss Mauricio Sarri has won his first two games in charge and it is clear Chelsea are more entertaining than under his predecessor Antonio Conte.

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.

His cameo in the 3-2 win over Arsenal on Saturday was just jaw-dropping, turning the game in the favour of the Blues and setting up Marcos Alonso's victor.

Goals from Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata gave Chelsea a deserved 2-0 lead inside 20 minutes of Saturday's London derby against Arsenal, with the Blues completely in control as they repeatedly carved open their opponents at will.

Chelsea have made a flawless start to their first Premier League campaign under Maurizio Sarri but what has been less than ideal, from the Italian's perspective at least, has been the smoking ban which has been enforced in all English stadiums since 2007.

And the former Napoli coach suggested it was a habit he may kick now he is in England.

Paul Manafort's lawyers conclude trial without calling any witnesses
Lawyers for Paul Manafort rested his defense Tuesday without calling any witnesses or having him testify to his fraud trial. After 10 days of testimony from more than two dozen witnesses, prosecutors wrapped up its case against Manafort on Monday.

"Three points is an important target for us, we did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were terrible", Sarri told reporters after the game. I still have two years of contract and we will see what happens.

"It was really very hard to answer about the last part of the first half". I enjoyed the match for 75 minutes, not in the other 15.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has explained why he substituted Mesut Ozil and Granit Xhaka in the 3-2 defeat to Chelsea.

"We didn't start very well, conceded two goals, but then afterwards we found ourselves, believed in ourselves and then started playing better than them", Mkhitaryan said, according to Arsenal's official website. "We have to work, improve on the basics and I'm not talking about only the defenders", added Sarri. So in terms of quality, we are going very well.

It was no surprise to see Hazard heavily linked with Real Madrid throughout the summer, a club that certainly does appeal to the Belgian superstar. I think in this way of football, if you don't cover the distances, you are in trouble.
