Eden Hazard takes a swipe at Arsenal after late Chelsea winner

Eden Hazard has aimed a dig at Arsenal after Marcos Alonso earned Chelsea bragging rights in Saturday’s London derby.

The Belgium international came off the bench to set up Alonso for the winning goal at Stamford Bridge.

It continued Maurizio Sarri’s perfect start as Blues boss while Gunners counterpart Unai Emery is still waiting to get off the mark at the Emirates.

Hazard took over Chelsea’s official Twitter account after the game and and couldn’t resist having a pop at their rivals.

He said: "Hi guys it’s Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge we are here just after the derby. You know London is Blue, so see you next week in Newcastle."

Sarri insisted his Chelsea side won’t be title challengers this season despite a 3-2 victory.

The Blues went two up through Pedro and Alvaro Morata in a stunning opening half-hour, but Unai Emery’s men drew level before the break thanks to goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi.


Chelsea finally secured the points through Marcos Alonso’s late goal but Sarri dismissed his side’s hopes of topping the table in May.

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

“We have to improve in the defensive phase and I’m not talking about only the defenders."
