We’ve picked the best Chelsea matches so far this season in Premier league. Not everyone expected Chelsea to have such a good start, but their fans did, just like those who like to bet on football.
“I have to know the characteristics of the players. I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of the championship and the players. Now I study my players.” said Sarri after the win away against Huddersfield 0-3.
For the BBC Sport, Maurizio Sarri said: “The game was more difficult than the result. If you see the result, you think it was a very easy match, but in the first half it was very difficult against physical opponents. We are not a physical team so for 20 minutes we were in trouble but we did very well. In this moment we are not at the top of our potential but we had the capacity to suffer for 20 minutes in the first half.”
“Chelsea were very clinical. They had four or five chances and scored three. We started very well in the first half. We pressed them high and the players did very well.” said Huddersfield coach David Wagner after the loss.
Second one we chose was the one home agains’t Arsenal. It was a tough one, but very important. It ended 3-2 after the late goal from Marcos Alonso. Man of the match was Jorginho, he won the ball 9x, had touched the ball 105x, and made 99 passes at with the 91,6%.
The third one was against Cardiff at home, 4-1 was the final outcome. The only match where Chelsea has scored 4 goals this season in Premier league. Man of the match was Eden Hazard who scored a hattrick.
“Hazard was unbelievable, unplayable. It was one of those days. Every time he got the ball he made things happen. The equalising goal was fantastic, his second had a little bit of luck, and the penalty was undoubtedly a penalty.” said Tony Cottee for Sky Sports.
Chelsea have won their first five matches in the Premier league this season, which is the fourth time, previously done in seasons 2005-06, 2009-10 and 2010-11, which is more than any other team in the league.
