Manchester City may have lost Kevin de Bruyne for three months with a knee injury, but Pep Guardiola's side hardly missed the Belgian and they put six goals past Huddersfield in an excellent display of attacking football.
An 81st minute victor from Marcos Alonso gave Chelsea a 3-2 win on an afternoon of high drama, yet the holes in the defending at both ends contributed to a game that left both goalkeepers hopelessly exposed as chances aplenty were missed.
After his World Cup exertions, Hazard has been left on the bench for both of Chelsea's opening Premier League victories under Maurizio Sarri.
He was unhappy with a blip at the end of the first half which allowed Arsenal back into the game and which he described afterwards as "horrible". I have two years left on my contract and we'll see what happens. In that 15 minutes we were not able to do this.
"The half-time is good for us and the second half is we need to continue this control, but I think the second half we don't push and keep possession like we did in the first half, and in our moments, our chances, we didn't do, and they did".
He said: "I can speak about the other 75 (minutes)". I can't say a wrong thing about that", he said."I want to play and have the ball at my feet. However, although players such as Alvaro Morata look to have a new lease of life, Sarri's decision to push N'Nolo Kante into a more advanced midfield role looks to have cost his team some defensive stability.
When quizzed about his thoughts regarding the Premier League Kovacic explained, "The tempo is higher, there is more space, but as I said it's not hard to adapt when you are surrounded by great players. And then today I think the team competed well, had chances in the match, and also the young players are playing each match and they are growing up with us". "I hope that we are able to play 90 minutes like the first 25". In quality, we are going very well.
The midfielder dictated the tempo of a thrilling opening period from the blues in Saturday's 3-2 win over Arsenal. "But I'm happy here", he told RMC Sport after the 3-2 win over Arsenal. I think in this way of football, if you don't cover the distances, you are in trouble.
