"Saturday is a very good option to show our personality, our capacity against a big team like Chelsea". Every player needs this commitment to do the two moments. For that reason, we need the balance but the result is like that. At the end of the match, we finished with two midfielders who were Lucas at 22 years old and Matteo at 19 years old.

Hazard only came on as a second-half substitute during the 3-0 triumph over Huddersfield Town but he nevertheless made his mark with an assist for Pedro's and Blues' third goal of the game.

First, I am calm when I see my team creating chances. I want us to continue with this work and to be completive for 90 minutes, but with a better performance than on Sunday, both individually and collectively. "The positioning in the pitch is the [same] as usual in his career".

On whether Mesut Ozil can be a central part of his system...

"I want to give them the chances in each match and maybe we need a lot of matches for the chances for every player but we started with the pre-season and every player is playing for chances and minutes and with all the competitions". I chose to change it because I think we needed a little more of a push in the middle, so that we couldn't let Chelsea progress easily with the ball. I am happy with Mesut.

"Yes, he is okay every day and is training good".

The striker doesn't give the impression that he particularly enjoys leading the line on his own as he is keen to make runs in behind, get into goalscoring positions, but he doesn't want to have to drop deep to join the play.

Granit Xhaka lasted just 45 minutes, with the Switzerland worldwide hauled off at the interval.

"It was a tactical decision because he had a yellow card", Emery said after the match.

The Spanish coach says Ozil, like all his players, needs to track back and do his bit to help defend when the team doesn't have the ball and has also called on the German ace to be more demanding and decisive in attack.
