Biggest test for Sarri as stuttering Chelsea host City

Eden-Hazard

We went longer, we were not comfortable, we were wider, without the right distances between players.

Amid an underperforming side this season, goalkeeper David de Gea has remained in nearly impeccable form, but the Spaniard spilled Shkodran Mustafi's header over the line to hand Arsenal the lead 26 minutes in.

Anthony Martial levelled six minutes later from close range, Ander Herrera pulling the ball back after Marcos Rojo's free kick was well-saved by Bernd Leno.

They were second best for much of the first half and had already withstood some Chelsea pressure when the visitors took the lead.

In every match you have to gain points.

De Gea made crucial late saves to deny Arsenal a first league win at Old Trafford since 2006.

"If we lose we are going to be 13 points from the top and that's a lot, but we have to think, prepare for the game well and not pay attention to the table at the moment".

Juergen Klopp's Liverpool, who like City are unbeaten, started without Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane at Burnley yesterday but still won 3-1.

"More worrying than that it seems like his first touch has gone". "It's very hard for me to understand why".

The one negative for Liverpool was the sight of Joe Gomez leaving the field on a stretcher because of an ankle injury.

Mark O'Haire says: "Imperious Manchester City have dropped just four points from their opening 15 fixtures and the ruthless Citizens should be backed to enhance that return against a Chelsea side that's now suffered two defeats in their past three Premier League outings".

Tottenham Hotspur shook off their north London derby defeat by Arsenal with Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min all on target for Mauricio Pochettino's side at Wembley where new Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl watched from the stands.

Sarri said his side had only played well for 55 minutes at Wolves and knows they will have to be at full tilt for 90 minutes on Saturday evening if they are to have any chance of halting the City juggernaut. Newcastle's Salomon Rondon fired Jacob Murphy's cross home at the far post during their 1-1 draw at Everton.
