Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea not yet Premier League contenders

Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea not yet Premier League contenders”

"I think today is for not happy with the result, but the next matches to prepare well".

However, despite looking characteristically flimsy at the back, Arsenal were a threat up front, frequently getting around the back of the Chelsea backline.

Chelsea wish to offer Hazard a new contract but he does not appear keen on signing anything at the moment, with two years left on his current deal.

Despite making 25 appearances for the Eagles last term and Chelsea making it clear they want to keep their man, it remains to be seen how much first-team football Sarri will give him.

Kelvin Benjamin on Panthers: Cam Newton, Bills WR receiver talk
The Carolina Panthers opened the 2018 preseason with a 28-23 victory over their cousins from up north, the Buffalo Bills . The Carolina Panthers have spent roughly the past three weeks in training camp preparing for the upcoming season.

Chelsea clinched the win when Marcos Alonso became their third Spaniard to score, converting a cross from substitute Eden Hazard who came on as a substitute in the 81st minute.

In the second-half, Chelsea looked more solid, and they would eventually bag the victor, with Alonso firing home from an Eden Hazard pass to secure all three points in a thrilling derby clash.

"Leave this year? I will not leave".

"For me there were many things positive in the first match against Manchester City".

Maurizio Sarri reveals who he wants Chelsea to sign this week
City stormed to the Premier League title in record-breaking fashion last season, as well as winning the Carabao Cup. The 59-year-old is eager to do well but he acknowledges the size of the task against the Premier League champions.

The Croatian worldwide arrived at Stamford Bridge on a season-long loan deal towards the end of the summer transfer window but was forced to wait until the second game of the season to make his debut for Chelsea.

Sarri said he started the match with Hazard on the bench because he still seemed exhausted after helping take Belgium to the World Cup semi-finals in July.

"We can sell but we cannot sign players. I'm fine here, we'll see what happens in a year or two".

However, the 27-year-old was more evasive over what may happen further down the line. I don't want to talk about it yet. It would be a bit unusual that they would sell me now while they can't sign a replacement. "So I think we have to work and we need to improve".
