Maurizio Sarri smoking: Chelsea boss reveals plan to quit cigarettes

After scoring his first goal of the new season in Chelsea's 3-2 win over Arsenal on Saturday, Morata revealed that he is in the process of buying a house near the club's Cobham training ground and is committed to proving his doubters wrong as he raises his young family in the English capital.

The next two opportunities that came the Gunners' way were ruthlessly dispatched by Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi, putting the visitors on level terms heading into the interval.

Chelsea's new coach Maurizio Sarri has offered mixed assessments of Morata's performances since taking charge in July, admitting in preseason that he was still waiting to see the best version of his first-choice striker.

But still, it is important to make a positive start at a new job and Sarri has bought himself crucial time by guiding his new team to six points from six in their first two games.

Asked if he sees Chelsea as potential title challengers, Sarri said candidly: "Not in this moment". We did very well in the last 25 minutes today, but I think that we have to work, we have to improve in the defensive parts.

The rupee has been on the downslide since the beginning of this year and has slipped around 9% in 2018. The Indian rupee on Tuesday morning fell to a record low of 70 against the U.S. dollar.

"The defensive phase is about the team". "We need to give the players calm and continue working". In that 15 minutes we were not able to do this.

Introduced for Willian in the 61st minute, Hazard helped tip the game decisively in Chelsea's favour, driving Arsenal back with his dribbling threat and ultimately creating the winning chance for Alonso. "I'm happy here, I do not want to talk about that yet", he told RMC Sport.

"It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench", said Hazard. But I think, also, that Morata can do better.

The player's disaffection with being left out of the matchday squad for Sunday's tie with Arsenal is set to have set off his desire to move, coming as it did after an appearance off the bench against Huddersfield in the opening game of the season.

Morata's fourth goal in 2018 was another positive for Chelsea, but Sarri believes there is more to come from the Spain worldwide.
