Chelsea has so far kept a 100 per cent win this season with Sarri now among the four coaches to ever win their first five matches on their arrival in the EPL.

The Blues are currently seated at the top of the EPL table after overtaking Liverpool with goal differences.

Sarri led Chelsea squad made a name for themselves over the weekend having defeated Cardiff in a game that saw Eden Hazard scoring a hat-trick and Willian adding a fourth goal for the Blues.

Despite the win, the match against Cardiff was physical which saw Chelsea midfielder, Matteo Kovacic sustaining an injury and was replaced with England international Ross Barkley, who gave his best for the Blues.

Since the beginning of this season, Coach Sarri Maurizio had preferred to start Kovacic alongside Kante and Jorginho with Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek being relegated to the bench.

The recent injury sustained by the Croatia international may keep out of form for some while and give one of Ross Barkley or Ruben Loftus-Cheek some ample time to perform at Stamford Bridge.

Matteo Kovacic joined Chelsea on loan from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window and had made it hard for the two England internationals to start at Chelsea.
