Eden Hazard confirms Chelsea stay - Premier League 2018

An 81st minute victor from Marcos Alonso gave Chelsea a 3-2 win on an afternoon of high drama, yet the holes in the defending at both ends contributed to a game that left both goalkeepers hopelessly exposed as chances aplenty were missed.

Ahead of matchweek two in the Premier League, we have searched the databases for five players you should definitely look to pick up to provide your team with a boost.

This is always the way, but it is clear that defensively we suffered three goals but also we had chances to do more goals.

According to the Sun, the England World Cup star will seek a loan move again if new boss Maurizio Sarri can not guarantee him regular match time.

But after opening his account in impressive style against Arsenal, Morata added that he expects Sarri's more proactive, expansive style of football to suit him better than the more orthodox target man role that predecessor Antonio Conte asked him to fulfil.

"Inside there were 15 minutes that were awful".

"We have good players, we can do something magic, so it's good to have this kind of manager".

"It was really very hard to answer about the last part of the first half. We were really in trouble".

"No, I needed half-time and the first half to end, not a cigarette", the Italian told reporters. "But in my opinion in this moment Kovacic, and Hazard, are not able to play for 90 minutes".

The 59-year-old Italian, a heavy smoker unable to satisfy his habit on the touchline due to the smoking ban, was grateful for Eden Hazard setting up Marcos Alonso's 81st-minute victor.

And two games into the Premier League season only champions Manchester City have scored more goals than Chelsea, who rank first in the division for completed passes, second for key passes and third for total shots per game.

"But we need to continue and press and press and press in the other half".
