The Blues manager, Maurizio Sarri in a recent statement has listed the three players that helped Chelsea to a strong start on his arrival to Stamford Bridge.

Sarri’s coming to England was delayed by Napoli over issues of his release clause.

Many football fans had believed his late arrival at Chelsea will affect him especially on how to implement his attacking style of football in the club.

Sarri disclosed he had also been doubtful of a fine start but he met a working machinery which made his style of game easier to implement.

According to the Italian, three Blues players were instrumental to Chelsea strong start and they are; Marcos Alonso, Cesar Azpilicueta and Pedro – who are all Spanish.

However, it will be surprising to some football fans that Chelsea talisman, Eden Hazard did not make the list despite his performance so far this season.

Sarri disclosed that the three Spanish players were helpful at Chelsea because they ‘already speak our football language,’ which means they understood the Italian style of football.

He hinted that Sarri ball was effective at Napoli within few weeks because they were already in the system.

Chelsea are currently at the second spot on the EPL table with Man City taking the lead.
