Unai Emery was keen to stress to Arsenal fans their current run of results are merely the start of a long process.
The Spaniard accepted the daunting task of replacing Gunners stalwart Arsene Wenger after 22 years at the club in the summer, and has started his tenure with defeats from his opening two Premier League games.
After slipping to defeat to Manchester City at the Emirates, Chelsea were next to inflict a painful defeat on the Gunners.
However, there was plenty of heart on display from the away side at Stamford Bridge and Emery was far from dismayed from what he saw.
“I think this is our process,” he told Sam Matterface after the game.
“And our process today, we will look at the positive things on the pitch we are pressing above all for one attacking moment.
“And also we need to continue doing today like the chances to score but also looking for these chances to score.”
After losing their first London derby of the season, Emery must prep his troops for a tough looking tie against east London outfit West Ham United.
Fellow new boss Manuel Pellegrini has also seen his side lose their opening two Premier League games.
With the Hammers sitting bottom of the table, former Sevilla boss Emery knows his side have a fantastic chance to earn their first points of the season.

He added: “Defensively at the moment I think we need also to continue to work because I think we need more time to be more compact on the pitch.
“But it’s what we’ll work with every player on this time.
“And also, this process, we play with two midfielders – one is 19, the other is 20 and I think for that we need to continue with passion, but working.
“And we will in the next match against West Ham.”
