‘I want to play: Hazard makes hispoint to Sarri

Chelsea recovered from the shock of blowing a two-goal lead against Arsenal as Marcos Alonso's late strike sealed a 3-2 win, while Harry Kane ended his August hoodoo in Tottenham's 3-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday.

"Everybody knows what I have said after the World Cup".

The visitors were guilty of several other glaring misses before Alonso stole all three points with just under 10 minutes remaining, preserving Maurizio Sarri's ideal start to his Chelsea tenure. "I'm really very happy with him". We can sell but we cannot sign players.

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). I could have gone back to Spain or Italy, all the people believe in me there but I want to change all the things here. We have players who can do something magic.

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic admits that he feels wanted at Chelsea and therefore expects to quickly adapt to his new surroundings.

"We scored twice to equalise, scoring two goals in 10 minutes, and then maybe we had another two chances to score to win the game".

Mauricio Pochettino too focused to celebrate Tottenham goals
Kane's golden moment came soon after as he cut inside from Erik Lamela's surging run and rolled into the bottom corner. But credit to Fulham and only after about 60 minutes did we start to take it into more unsafe areas.

'I think it was a bit of a insane game, which is usual in the Premier League. I still have two years of my contract left and we will see what happens.

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

Chelsea is looking unsafe in attack under Sarri but open at the back.

"I think we have to work, improve in the basics and I'm not talking about only the defenders". We lost ground, we were not able to press, we were not able to defend, we were really in trouble.

"I think the players were very good in the second half because it was not easy to answer the final part of the first half, from a mental point of view".

He said: "I can speak about the other 75 (minutes)". But I think, also, that Morata can do better. In the second half, we played with two midfielders, 19 and 21 years old.
