Chelsea defeats Arsenal 3-2 in the battle of nerves

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard says he will not leave the club this month because they can't sign a replacement. Since then, Eden Hazard has made more than 250 appearances for the Blues scoring almost ninety goals and has even managed to win two Premier League titles, even being named in the Premier League team of the year on four separate occasions.

But Arsenal fought back through goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi only for Eden Hazard to provide the victor for Marcos Alonso.

"The players were very good in the second half".

"We started shaky, I don't know, maybe we didn't know what to do, but we picked ourselves up and got going", Iwobi said.

"For me, we need to start together, whether we are attacking or defending".

The Belgian star has been linked with a move to Real Madrid all summer, but Hazard took to the Blues Twitter account to show that his current allegiances are very much with Maurizio Sarri's men by saying, "Hi guys, it's Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge, we are here just after the derby, you know, London is blue, so see you next week at Newcastle".

The transfer window for Premier League clubs has already closed, but remains open in a host of other European leagues until August 31. I'm happy here, I do not want to talk about that yet. For now, I'm happy.

"A lot of things have been said, nonsense and everything". I have two years left on my contract and we'll see what happens.

"Leaving this year? I will not leave", he told French radio station RMC.

Discussing Ozil's work-rate off the ball, Emery said: "Defensive moments are for each and every player". It would be a bit unusual that they would sell me now while they can't sign a replacement.

"We had chances to do more... in the first half, I think we need to control the second half better".
