"It's been a great first half for people like us, sitting at home as well".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has indicated that he has held positive talks with Eden Hazard and he is confident that the Belgium worldwide will stay put with the Blues for the campaign.

Hazard is in contention to make his first start of the campaign on Saturday evening when the Blues play host to Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

St Lucia finished third in the table in 2016 but they didn't win any of their 10 games past year and they've lost all four so far in 2018.

Mesut Özil has been the subject of criticism from Unai Emery, with the new manager unhappy with the effort the attacking midfielder has shown.

"For everybody, it's hard against Manchester City, I think", he said. There are defensive moments and attacking moments. The exciting thing is that it may even be better under Emery than it was under Wenger. The clinical nature of Arsenal's game will be questioned after those haunting misses but so should the ease at which Chelsea penetrated the Arsenal backline. I think he can play in any of the three positions in midfield.

The Blues are still learning to play the Maurizio Sarri way, while Arsenal are yet to flawless Unai Emery's pressing strategy, and as Michael Cox explains in his Tactical Preview, the Gunners are likely to adopt a more cautious formation here.

Willian and Pedro didn't give Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta much support defensively and that will concern Sarri, but eventually they tweaked the system with Kante dropping more centrally in the second half. It's time to back your Premier League winning bet - register with BetInKenya here!

Arsenal's wretched away form in the Premier League last season is what cost them a place in the top four and finally Wenger his job. On the whole, he was one of Arsenal's better performers.

"They've got no idea of where people are on the pitch".
