  1. 'Give chances to youth'

    Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal


    Arsenal manager Unai Emery, speaking to BBC Sport: "It is clear the result is not good for us but the process is continuing. Today, one thing is in the first half the reaction after 2-0, and also the efficiency. We had chances to do more score in the first half, I think we need to control the second half like we want, but I think we didn't play like the first half and our chances were less.

    "The attacking moment is all the team and the defensive moment is all the team. We need to be more compact. We need a lot of work together and it is my responsibility first, to give this compact block and to give this attacking balance.

    "We need to continue working for what we want, our process, today we had two midfielders one 19 and one 21 years old, we need to give them the confidence to play, but our way, our process, is to improve and give these chances to to the young players. I think today is for not happy with the result, but the next matches to prepare well."

  2. 'Not easy with Arsenal'

    Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal


    Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri speaking to BBC Sport: "Very important. In this period for us it's not easy to gain points. Three points is an important target for us, we did very well for 75 minutes but inside that, 15 minutes were horrible.

    "It was very, very difficult because we lost the distances between the players and 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.

    "In the second half we did very well also mentally."

    On Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovacic: "In this moment they are not able to play the full 90 minutes. Also, I think to play 25-30 mins when the intensity of the game is going down, is better. I think Mateo can become a great player.

    On a good start to the season: "Yes, especially as our pre-season was very difficult."

    Lorcan: Only player that I'd staple in my Arsenal starting lineup next week would be Guendouzi.

    Goose: Matteo Guendouzi, finally Arsenal have some heart in midfield.

    Ash: Coming from French league division 2 and 19, Guendouzi looks a decent buy.

  6. 'I am happy without the result'

    Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal


    Arsenal manager Unai Emery, on BT Sport: "We want to win. This is always the way but it is clear that defensively we suffered three goals but also we had chances to do more goals. I think the result is 3-2 but we also think we did chances to do more score.

    "In the first half we are creating chances to score, and for that I am happy, I am in the match thinking we are well on the pitch. But also they had options, chances to score and effectivity (sic) is the difference.

    "Our reaction is good, we had chances to go 2-2 and we deserved to do more at half-time. The half-time is good for us and the second half is we ewe need to continue this control, but I think the second half we don't push and keep possession like we did in the first half, and in our moments, our chances, we didn't do, and they did.

    "That is why the results is 3-2. But it is one process. In the second half we played with two midfielders, 19 and 21 years old. They improve and are continuing. I am happy without the result."

  7. 'We fought for Emery'

    Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal


    Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi: “We started shaky, I don’t know, maybe we didn’t know what to do, but we picked ourselves up and got going. Unfortunately we weren’t able to take all our chances."

    On the manager's half-time talk: “We were on a high. The message was to keep it going, keep our head and don’t lose ourselves. We fought hard for him."

    On new boss Unai Emery: “We enjoy training, everyone is buying into his ideas. It all takes time, a new manager, a new system and the fans and players know that.”

  8. Post update

    Fred: Surely Bellerin must be dropped now, he has no passion, and seems to have forgotten how to follow his man.

    Matthew: Bellerin is awful can’t cross can’t defend and is sleepwalking come on Barca buy him please.

  10. Sarri a 'great manager'

    Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal


    Chelsea forward Eden Hazard, speaking to BT Sport:"It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench, but the boys when they are playing they did well so I am just happy for the win."

    On manager Maurizio Sarri: "He is the kind of manager who wants the ball, to control the ball. I can't say a wrong thing about that. I want to play and have the ball at my feet. We have players who can do something magic. He is a great manager, like we had before."

  11. 'Deserved the points'

    Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal


    Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso tells BT Sport: "I think in the first half it was half and half, we started dominating and then lost a bit of space. They played better at the end but in the second half we were the better team. It is three deserved points."
