Maurizio Sarri has enjoyed an excellent start to life in the Premier League as the Blues sit joint top of the table on 12 points having registered victories over Huddersfield, Arsenal, Newcastle and Bournemouth so far.

Eden Hazard's hat trick ensured Chelsea kept its ideal start to the Premier League season with a 4-1 victory over Cardiff on Saturday.

It was yet a no show situation for Nigeria global Victor Moses, as he was left out in Chelsea squad that hammered visiting Cardiff 4-1 at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday. "At the moment, in my opinion, Liverpool and Man city are better than us".

The 94-cap playmaker already has five goals in as many league games this season, and appears to only have eyes for more.

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.

"We were in the game for 80 minutes and once again I'm really disappointed with the goals we conceded".

The hosts almost hit back immediately and in some style as backheels from Pedro Rodriguez and Olivier Giroud sent Mateo Kovavic clear on goal, but the Croatian was denied his first Chelsea goal by a fine save from Neil Etheridge.

On paper, this game looks like a straightforward win for Chelsea.

"I think in this moment, we are very unsafe in the offensive phase but we are not so solid as I want in the defensive phase", Sarri said.

His form has been ridiculously good and he turned in one of his finest ever displays in a Chelsea shirt against Cardiff.

"Chelsea is his home, of course". "There was interest from other clubs, but things were clear after speaking with Chelsea - the club is counting on me and I feel good".
