I have to agree with Chelsea coach, I am not sure Chelsea is strong enough yet to contend all the way - Michael Obembe

Marcos Alonso's late strike settled a chaotic Premier League classic in Chelsea's favour after Arsenal fought back from two goals down and threatened to earn a point at Stamford Bridge.

But coach Maurizio Sarri said he did not believe his players were ready to challenge for Manchester City's title.

"I enjoyed the match for 75 minutes, the other 15 minutes it was better to smoke I think. It was a wonderful match for everybody but those 15 minutes were horrible," he said.

"At the moment we are not ready. We need to improve and I hope that, in two months' time, we will be able to play 90 minutes like we did in the first 25 today."

Sarri's side had built a two-goal advantage inside the first 20 minutes after Pedro turned in Alonso's cross and Alvaro Morata added another seconds after Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang shot over from close range.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan wasted a similar opportunity before pulling one back with a low shot that Chelsea's new £71m keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga should have saved before Alex Iwobi put the Gunners on level terms.

Aubameyang and Iwobi missed further chances before half-time and Chelsea controlled the second half, Alonso sweeping in substitute Eden Hazard's cross nine minutes from time to make it successive wins for Sarri and two defeats for new Arsenal manager Unai Emery.
