Unai Emery lost his second match in a row as Arsenal boss as Chelsea won the derby, but he was still encouraged by the performance.

The Blues dropped points at home eight times in 19 Premier League games last season under Antonio Conte.

He said: "We are not title challengers, not in this moment".

In the second half, Unai Emery replaced Granit Xhaka with Lucas Torreira while Maurizio Sarri brought Matteo Kovacic and Eden Hazard for Ross Barkley and Willian as Chelsea went in search of the victor on the hour mark.

Incredibly, Iwobi missed another great chance for Arsenal in first-half injury time when he fired over after being teed up by Mkhitaryan's pull-back from the right.

Turkey doubles tariffs on some US imports; lira rallies
United States officials say National Security adviser John Bolton had met with the Turkish ambassador to Washington on Monday. The Turkish lira plummeted to a record low on Monday, losing almost 40 percent of its value since the start of 2018.

It's a courageous show of loyalty from Emery to say he'll stick with Cech; it's now down to the Blues to prove the Spaniard wrong - and there's definitely a good chance of that.

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

After featuring off the bench in the season-opening 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town, Hazard is expected to be considered for a start in Saturday's visit from Arsenal. But he's improving. I'm not really anxious about him. But I think this coach has the ability to start a new era.

Paying up to $65 million for a 21-year-old Brazilian with one inconsistent season in the Premier League behind him seemed a gamble by Everton.

The win makes it two defeats out of two for Emery, with the Arsenal defence needing major work, while Granit Xhaka continues to labour in midfield.

'We are very happy because we deserved the victory.

"We conceded too many chances".

Italy midfielder Jorginho, who Sarri brought with him from Napoli, was commanding in the heart of midfield and Ross Barkley, who barely featured under previous Chelsea coach Antonio Conte, looked strong and confident.

Chelsea raced into what seemed like an unassailable two-goal advantage within 20 minutes, as Chelsea's Spanish contingent linked up expertly.

Mesut Ozil also had an opportunity to score in the third minute but he sliced Nacho Monreal's cross wide. "I'm happy here, I do not want to talk about that yet", he told RMC Sport.

Unai Emery: "We can improve and we need to improve playing in the difficult games We need to work hard, we need to work together and we need to suffer together when we lose".
