Hazard praises Sarri after win over Arsenal

Eden Hazard news

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has heaped praise on coach Maurizio Sarri after the Blues' 3-2 Premier League win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Chelsea were two goals up inside twenty minutes with goals from Pedro and Alvaro Morata. Arsenal leveled before halftime with goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi before Marcos Alonso scored the winner for Chelsea in the 81st minute to hand the Blues the three points.

Speaking to BT Sport, Hazard said: "He is the kind of manager who wants the ball, to control the ball. I can't say a wrong thing about that. I want to play and have the ball at my feet. We have players who can do something magic. He is a great manager, like we had before."

The win gives Chelsea six points from two Premier League games after last week's 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town.

For Arsenal, Unai Emery's misery continues as the defeat means that he is yet to win a league game with the Gunners after last week's 2-0 defeat to champions Manchester City.

After a difficult opening two fixtures, Arsenal will face West Ham United and Cardiff City in their next two Premier League games while Chelsea will face Newcastle United and Bournemouth.
