Mark Lawrenson makes Arsenal admission ahead of Chelsea FC clash

18 August, 2018, 23:01 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

The Belgium playmaker continues to be linked with a move to Real Madrid, where the transfer window remains open for another two weeks.

Because this was not the Morata who so frustrated the Stamford Bridge faithful and even former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who last season complained "every f***ing time he goes down, it's a free-kick".

But the new manager believes his exceptional attacker has what it takes to become the best in the world. "He's a very good offensive player, but he has improved in the defensive phase in the last two years in Madrid".

Barkley and Hazard made way for Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovacic on the hour as Sarri tried to put his side back on top, and Jorginho had a deflected strike held by Cech. "I think one of the most important clubs in Europe can not sell an important player without the possibility of buying a player on the same level".

'He can be the first. It depends on him. He needs to score as all the strikers in the world do, I think.

'Hazard, technically, is really one of the best in Europe at the moment.

Unai Emery, on the other hand, will be hoping to tweak his side's fortunes a little bit with the view of gaining a point or win over Chelsea and kick-start the Gunners' campaign in the Premier League. Avoiding a morale-sapping defeat may be more important than taking big risks, for both sides, and the draw offers a touch of value.

'I think one of the most important clubs in Europe can not sell an important player without the possibility of buying a player on the same level. So I was concerned for 20 days, no more.

Mark Lawrenson has admitted that he is unsure whether he was right to tip Arsenal to finish in fourth place in the Premier League this season.

'We have to try to reach 101 per cent of our potential. I don't know, now, what can happen but my feeling is that we can be a very good team.

"In this moment, he has to work".

Cesc Fabregas will miss Saturday's clash against the Gunners but Sarri says the Spaniard will not be a long-term absentee.

"Fabregas is out for this match".

He told BT Sport: "It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench, but the boys when they are playing they did well so I am just happy for the win". I'm not sure, it's nothing serious but he has a very unusual injury.

'I think we lost completely the distances. He has a pain, not in the knee - near the knee.
