Chelsea are joint top after their opening two Premier League fixtures against Huddersfield and Arsenal.

Le Saux, who now works as a pundit for NBC Sports, said that the Blues are continually getting the better of Arsenal in recent years due to the willingness of the Stamford Bridge outfit to splash the cash on premium talent as opposed to their city rivals, who have been mostly conservative with their signings over the last couple of seasons.

He said: "I know he [Emery] is trying to play out from the back".

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.

The improving defender, 20, had also been impressive in last week's 2-0 victory at Fulham, but his first senior red card followed in the 75th minute.

The Italian manager was craving a cigarette at the half-time whistle as Chelsea gave away a two-goal lead in the first half of Saturday's 3-2 win over Arsenal. It's not easy but I think he's doing it in the right way.

The former Paris Saint-Germain, Sevilla, and Valencia boss has looked to change things at the Emirates Stadium, very evidently bringing in a more aggressive style of football to what Gunners' fans have been used to over the past 20 years.

"We have to keep working because we have a new manager, a new philosophy and want to play in a different way than before under Wenger". He could go elsewhere and might only play 15 games every season'.

"Kepa Arrizabalaga could have done better with Henrikh Mkhitaryan's first goal but I would rather have a young goalkeeper who is confident playing out from the back than Petr Cech, who is struggling". "It's a new philosophy, we have to accept that and work hard to achieve our goals".
