Maurizio Sarri reveals which Chelsea star can lead them to glory

Maurizio Sarri reveals which Chelsea star can lead them to glory

"We can play, we should play better, but we scored four goals and it's a good game for us".

Watford had also taken 12 points out of 12, but Javi Gracia's Hornets lost for the first time this term by going down 2-1 at home to Manchester United.

"Nobody will play the flawless season". In fact, after Erik Lamela pulled one back in stoppage time, Son Heung-min was unfortunate not to earn a stoppage-time penalty when South Korea's returning Asian Games champion was kicked by Sadio Mane.

"I don't want to go there and not have a shot on target, but we've got to have players at their best abilities to give them a game".

Chelsea maintained their 100 percent start to the season as Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick to secure a 4-1 victory over Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge this afternoon. He told me he wants to play.

Chelsea are likely to be without Emerson Palmieri and Davide Zappacosta against Cardiff City on Saturday after both players returned from Italy duty with fever-like symptoms, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is struggling with a tibial problem sustained with England.

The headlines won't tell the whole full story tomorrow, with a scoreline that flattered the hosts, but it was a tough lesson to learn for the Premier League newcomers. I don't know. I have to speak to him.

"For 15 minutes, we were awful", Sarri said, his English already good enough to forcibly make his point.

Willian's sumptuous strike for Chelsea's fourth edged the Blues ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table on goal difference with City just two points further back.

The feeling of being outclassed is one Cardiff may become accustomed to, having failed to significantly strengthen over the summer on their return to the top flight.

He might not have been on the scoresheet here, but the recalled Giroud justified his selection with two telling assists for Hazard that turned the match around.

But they had to withstand some late pressure after Andre Grey halved their advantage and Nemanja Matic saw a late red card.

Bournemouth moved up to fifth with an impressive 4-2 victory over 10-man Leicester with Ryan Fraser scoring twice.
