Kovacic: Chelsea and Sarri Believe in Me

I still have two years of contract [left] and we'll see what happens. It would be a bit unusual for [Chelsea] to let me go and not recruit another player.

"The 15 minutes at the end of the first half was disgusting".

"In terms of quality not too much [more is needed], because in the first 25 minutes we did really very well", Sarri continued.

Eden Hazard came off the bench to set up a late winning goal by Marcos Alonso as Chelsea beat Arsenal 3-2 in a frenetic London derby on Saturday for its second straight win in the Premier League. "We moved the ball very quickly, fast, we played vertical balls and we did really very well".

"Leave this year? I will not leave".

"The second half was when we needed to control the game and create chances, but in the second half we didn't push, or keep possession, and we gave them options to score".

"Not in this moment", said Sarri, who bemoaned a "horrible" final 15 minutes of the first-half that saw Chelsea throw away their advantage. In the second half, we played with two midfielders, 19 and 21 years old.

Now she's sharing her story with the world, from almost dying to an extraordinary facial surgery that has given her a new start. After a 31-hour procedure, Katie Stubblefield emerged from an operation room a year ago with a new face and new possibilities.

This is perhaps best case scenario for Chelsea, who we may qualify as a contender for the PL crown along with Liverpool and Manchester City (leaving room for United and Spurs, of course).

And he could be in line for an excellent season, as Maurizio Sarri's attacking brand of football may suit him.

"In quality, we are going very well".

"I think in the Premier League we don't have time [on the ball]".

"It was very, very hard because we lost the distances between the players and we were unable to cover the lost balls and press like a team, so we were really in trouble".

Spurs' players logged more minutes in Russian Federation than any other Premier League club and while fatigue may yet undermine a title challenge, they have put their off-field troubles in the transfer market and delays in the completion of their new stadium to one side by beating Newcastle and Fulham.
