After being asked if he needed a cigarette during Chelsea's tense first half against Arsenal, Sarri responded: "No I needed half-time and the first half to end, not a cigarette.

“I will smoke in the evening, not during the match.

"I am going to stop for just one or two years then I will start again."

Chelsea was reportedly considering building a personal smoking area for Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

However, it appears the former Empoli boss may not need one after all.

Chelsea raced into a 2-0 lead against Arsenal on Saturday evening but conceded twice in four minutes towards the end of the first period.

"Inside there were 15 minutes that were horrible," Sarri said.

"We lost ground, we were not able to press, we were not able to defend, we were really in trouble.

"I think in the second half, we did very well from our mental point of view.

Chelsea will take a visit to St James Park to play Newcastle in their next Premier League match.
