The Belgian was influential off the bench as Chelsea edged out Arsenal in a topsy-turvy 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, with Alvaro Morata also scoring just his third Premier League goal of 2018.

Mateo Kovacic was content with how he performed on his Chelsea debut as the Blues narrowly defeated Arsenal 3-2.

Sarri explained: "I think we have to work to improve in the defensive phase - and we are not only talking about defenders".

'I think that was very important and shows we are working well and focused on winning'.

Sarri admitted his side suffered a "horrible" 15 minutes which could have cost them dear.

"I have two years left on my contract and we'll see what happens".

New Kevin Spacey movie makes $425 for weekend
In October a year ago , actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Kevin sexually harassed him when he was 14 and the star was 26. It stars Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts, and Taron Egerton, with Spacey playing real-life con artist, Ron Levin.

After making a gradual return from World Cup duty he played half an hour in the victory over his side's London rivals. We were unable to cover the lost balls and press like a team, so we were really in trouble, but I think the players were really very good because at 2-2 it was not easy with Arsenal. Otherwise it might be a problem.

"If we press very high we are able to do well but at other moments, when we are not able to press, we are in trouble". But not in the other 15 minutes. Clubs can still sell players, but not sign new ones anymore.

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.

"Everybody knows what I said after the World Cup - but I'm happy here". "We'll see what happens in a year or two years".

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose: the more things change, the more they stay the same.

This is perhaps best case scenario for Chelsea, who we may qualify as a contender for the PL crown along with Liverpool and Manchester City (leaving room for United and Spurs, of course).
