Maurizio Sarri admitted that Chelsea are not yet at the level of Premier League title challengers despite beating Arsenal 3-2 at Stamford Bridge to continue their ideal start to the new season. 15 minutes from maybe the 30th-minute was disgusting. "But I'm happy here", the 27-year-old told RMC Sport (via the Mail) following Chelsea's 3-2 over Arsenal on Saturday (via the Mail).

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to hold showdown talks with club officials this week over his future. "In the first 25 minutes, we did really very well". If we press very high we are able to do well. Otherwise, for us it may be a problem.

On the touch-line, Sarri, wearing a baggy blue T-shirt and track-suit pants, waved his arms in frustration as he implored his players to close Arsenal down in their own half as the Gunners showed signs of fighting their way into the game.

Goals from Pedro and Alvaro Morata inside the opening 20 minutes gave Chelsea a commanding lead, but Unai Emery's side rallied and were level before the break courtesy of strikes from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi.

But any result would have been possible in a see-saw game marked by poor defending and astonishing misses, with Arsenal particularly guilty of both in the first half.

That's if it takes off, which some say is unlikely given the cost of 3D printers and the lack of durability of the plastic guns. The gun plans were pulled from the internet in 2013 by order of the State Department under worldwide gun trafficking laws.

He said: "I can speak about the other 75 (minutes). 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", Morata said.

In fairness, however, their first two games have been against reigning champions Manchester City and Sarri's Chelsea; a very tough start indeed.

"Well yeah, he (Sarri) knows me for a long time. Clubs can not sign players", said Hazard.

The end result left Emery facing up to a second successive defeat as Arsenal boss, he insisted he needs time to find solutions to the problems he has inherited from his predecessor Arsene Wenger.

Asked if he sees Chelsea as potential title challengers, Sarri said candidly: "Not in this moment".
