Unai Emery reveals that he shook hands with Maurizio Sarri in the dressing-room area following Arsenal's loss to Chelsea.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has laughed off rumours of a rift with Maurizio Sarri after appearing to snub his Chelsea counterpart in the immediate aftermath of Saturday's Premier League clash.

The Spaniard headed straight down the tunnel following the Gunners' topsy-turvy 3-2 loss at Stamford Bridge, having seen his side concede a late goal.

Emery has revealed that he instead waited for Sarri in the dressing-room area, though, as the ex-Napoli boss was busy celebrating with supporters behind his dugout.

Asked about the lack of a handshake at full time, Emery told reporters: "I waited for him in the dressing room to give him my hand."

Emery is without a point from his first two Premier League matches, having also suffered a 2-0 loss to Manchester City last week.
