EPL: Why I did not do well under Conte - Chelsea striker, Morata

Morata's confidence was affected by being regularly substituted by Antonio Conte last season

The 59-year-old Italian, a heavy smoker unable to satisfy his habit on the touchline due to the smoking ban, was grateful for Eden Hazard setting up Marcos Alonso's 81st-minute victor.

"Looking at the Arsenal team, not one of their players would get in Maurizio Sarri's best XI". He joined Chelsea albeit on loan from Madrid on the deadline day.

"At full back, Cesar Azpilicueta is both more solid defensively and more creative in attack than Hector Bellerin while Marcos Alonso has been impressive since his debut in 2016".

He held onto the ball well in hard spaces and linked up nicely with Eden Hazard on a number of occasions, helping Chelsea back into the game having been brought onto the field with half an hour to go.

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.

The World Cup victor created four important chances during the match - over four times his average figure of 0.95 for the previous two seasons.

"We want to win".

Turnbull 'holds crisis meeting' amid calls for Dutton to challenge leadership
In a dramatic move, Mr Turnbull used a meeting of Liberal Party MPs and Senators to declare open the leadership. It has a 2.9 per cent margin of error.

However, Sarri's style - christened "Sarri ball" - was taking shape against Arsenal and the ex-Napoli boss says it is just a matter of time before his players get used to it.

"I think we need to give the players calm and to continue working", he said.

"The previous year was very hard for me, not just with confidence".

"But also they had options, chances to score and effectivity is the difference". In quality, we are going very well. When a player is good, he can play in any league. "We started to work all together two weeks ago, so my target now is to play 90 minutes like the first 25".

"They improve and are continuing". Told him I was an Arsenal fan and I was upset about the game this weekend but he smiled at me and said "sorry".

Arsenal return to action on Saturday when they welcome West Ham to the Emirates Stadium.
