Cape Town - Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says it would have been better to go for a cigarette than watch the final 15 minutes of his side's match against Arsenal.

The Blues scored nine minutes from time to secure a 3-2 win.

Sarri, who cannot smoke along the touchline in England as he once did in Italy, is an 80-a-day smoker.

Chelsea are looking at ways in which they can provide an area for Sarri to smoke during matches.
