Alonso snatches Chelsea victory in five-goal thriller after Arsenal comeback

Emery insists his Arsenal side have 'one plan one process'

Marcos Alonso's late victor earned victory for Blues boss Sarri in his first competitive match at Stamford Bridge after goals from Gunners duo Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi cancelled out early strikes from Pedro and Alvaro Morata.

Chelsea take on Arsenal in the Premier League's game of the weekend on Saturday and Sarri expects the Gunners, also under new leadership in Unai Emery, to rival his team for a place in the top four.

Maurizio Sarri's side raced into a 2-0 lead in the London derby before Arsenal drew level in a thrilling first half at Stamford Bridge. Sadly, they squandered further chances in a game that lifted Chelsea to joint-lead in the table alongside Tottenham Hotspur and Bournemouth.

Today's Chelsea-Arsenal contest from Stamford Bridge was a thriller, with Chelsea hanging on for a 3-2 victory.

You shouldn't change your mentality if you lose the first game.

The visitors were guilty of several other glaring misses before Alonso stole all three points with just under 10 minutes remaining, preserving Maurizio Sarri's ideal start to his Chelsea tenure.

Ozil has come in for criticism for a drop in effort at times but, under Emery's new system, Arsenal's highest-paid player will be expected to muck in.

"I think we need to give the players calm and to continue working", he said.

Nacho Monreal's return to fitness has come at a good time for Emery, who is in need of a left-back having been without the Spain worldwide and Sead Kolasinac for the City game.

"For me it's about finding the good balance for all that we want in attacking moments and defensive moments". After that, we started to play better, we pressed better, won a lot of balls in midfield and had chances.

'This is the message we need to send to other teams.

He added: "The first half we created more chances to score - 2-2 is also maybe short for us because we created more chances (than Chelsea)".

Emerging economies face threat of Turkey knock-on effect
The root causes of the current crisis are economic and predate the political conflict between the USA and Turkish governments. President Erdogan has accused the USA of trying to "bring Turkey to its knees through threats over a pastor ".

"I am happy with Mesut", Emery said in his post-match press conference. Still, they haven't beaten us in 90 minutes in the six various games we have played in the previous year, and we have kept a clean sheet on our last two visits, so don't give up hope! "We are going to do with him the same [defensive] work, helping him and demanding more every day".
