The Gunners rallied to go level at the break with Henrikh Mkhitaryan scoring before Iwobi himself found the equaliser, and the Nigerian said Emery urged patience in his half-time team talk.

Chelsea have just beaten Arsenal 3-2 at Stamford Bridge in Maurizio Sarri's first home game.

Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 in a thrilling encounter at Stamford Bridge in the battle of London's two newest bosses.

Chelsea FC have a 100 per cent record under Sarri in the Premier League so far after scoring six goals in victories over Huddersfield Town and Arsenal. This is always the way, but it is clear that defensively we suffered three goals but also we had chances to do more goals. "We need to give the players calm and continue working".

"Eden can improve. We are talking about one of the most important players in Europe now but, in my opinion, he can improve more".

"The team competed well today, had chances in the match and the young players are growing up with us".

Usain Bolt has arrived in Australia as he continues to chase him dream of becoming a professional footballer. It's understood Bolt will have his first training session with the club on Tuesday 21st August.

Perhaps Emery is right to be preaching patience and "calm". After all, this is a club that has consistently dispelled the myth that stability is the most crucial ingredient for success. "It all takes time, a new manager, a new system and the fans and players know that". The players are accustomed to a new broom sweeping clean, but Sarri is also fortunate to have inherited a stronger, better-balanced squad at Chelsea than Emery has found at Arsenal.

However, he commended Alvaro Morata for his first Premier goal since April 1st but appeared to offer little hope for England's Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who couldn't even make the bench. They improve and are continuing. I think we have to work and we have to improve.

"We need to press and press and press in the other half, otherwise we are in trouble".

'I enjoyed the match for 75 minutes. But in the moment where we are not going to press in the other half, we are in trouble.

And he praised Eden Hazard, who replaced Willian on 60 minutes and set up Marcos Alonso's victor, saying that when he returned the team would be have a different creative threat.

Asked whether Chelsea had enough quality at present to fight for the title, Sarri said: 'No, not in this moment.
