Maurizio Sarri reveals why Ruben Loftus-Cheek missed Arsenal clash

Player ratings: Super subs get top marks for victorious Blues

Alex Iwobi got his first goal against Chelsea in Saturday's English Premier League showdown against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"If we want to defend by looking only at the ball we need to stay very compact and press in the other half".

After the break the Blues has more control, and the double introduction of Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovacic turned the game in their favour.

Oliseh who laid initial foundation for Nigeria's qualification for the recently ended 2018 World cup in Russian Federation took to social media to express his delight over Iwobi's performance especially in the first 45 minutes of the battle of Stamford Bridge Saturday.

However, the pre-match press conference saw Maurizio Sarri having to discuss a potential high-profile departure yet again.

"But I think, I hope, that in one week, maximum two weeks, he'll be able to play the whole game". But, at the other moments, when we are not able to press in the other half, we are in trouble. The reaction we showed after they went 2-0 ahead and we started the second half well, but then we didn't take our chances. But not in the other 15 minutes [when Arsenal scored two goals].

He played down talk of Chelsea contesting the title, despite winning their first two games of the season, saying his side needed to learn to keep up their tempo. 'It's very important for him. But I think it was a wonderful match for everybody. But I think, also, that Morata can do better.

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.

He said: "In this moment they are not able to play the full 90 minutes".
