Alex Iwobi has opened his goal scoring account for the season as he was on target in Saturday’s London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal at the Stamford Bridge.
That nonetheless, Chelsea made it two wins from two under new boss Maurizo Sarri thanks to a dramatic 3-2 victory over London rivals Arsenal on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues led by two goals with 20 minutes on the clock through Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata but the Gunners bounced back and were on level terms before the break.
Henrikh Mkhitaryam and Alex Iwobi both guilty of missing big chances, put their side on course for a first point under Unai Emery with their quickfire goals.
Chelsea snatched all three points in the final 10 minutes, however, with Marcos Alonso scoring the decisive fifth goal following some good play from substitute Eden Hazard out wide.
Former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud and current Gunners ace Aaron Ramsey were both unlucky with their shots in the dying embers of the game, with Chelsea seeing things through for three vital points.
