Hazard Confirms Chelsea Stay, Ends Real Madrid Links

Chelsea came out on top in a five-goal thriller against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, following their opening-day win over Huddersfield. They will nearly certainly achieve that should they perform with the cleverness and skill in attack that did for Arsenal but, equally, they could come unstuck should they display the naivety in defence that allowed Unai Emery's side to get back into the contest before half-time.

Asked how he managed his cravings during the match and if he smoked at half-time and immediately afterwards, prior to his media commitments, Sarri said: "No, I will smoke in the evening I think".

"So I am very happy, also because I think that Kovacic can improve a lot here". "We lost distances, we were not able to press. In the other 15 it was better to smoke, I think", Sarri, who is a heavy smoker, said. 15 minutes from maybe the 30th-minute was terrible. Clubs can still sell players, but not sign new ones anymore. I feel fine, I miss rhythm but I just joined the team.

"It was really very hard to answer about the last part of the first half".

"We want to defend by looking only at the ball". We need to be more compact.

He expressed a wish for Geneva to pay homage to Annan but said it was necessary to discuss the subject with the family first. Current U.N. secretary-general Antonio Guterres said in a statement that he considered Annan a mentor.

The Spaniard looked incredibly frustrated at the end of the game, and will have no doubt been reflecting on Arsenal's disappointing mistakes during the first half which ultimately decided the result. Otherwise, for us it is maybe a problem. "I hope we will be able to play 90 minutes like the first 25 in two months".

Yet the Gunners were left to rue wasting a host of other glorious chances before Eden Hazard came off the bench to swing an enthralling encounter Chelsea's way by providing the cross for Marco Alonso's victor.

Maurizio Sarri said Chelsea must improve the "quantity" rather than the quality of their best football if they are to emulate the level reached by his Napoli team.

It is unclear whether Sarri was joking, but his dependence on nicotine remains, as he is seen on the touchline using alternatives to smoking, such as putting a piece of plastic in his mouth to distract from the craving.
