Having begun the season in ideal fashion, Chelsea welcome Cardiff City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, the home side hoping to extend Maurizio Sarri's record to five wins from five as the Italian boss begins to imprint his style upon them.

Chelsea: Cesc Fabregas is unlikely to be rushed back from a knee injury and is unlikely to feature.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is trying to give up smoking.

Sarri has enjoyed a superb start to his Chelsea reign with the London club winning all four of their league games to sit joint top of the table with Liverpool and Watford.

'In a few days, one week, he will be ready to play. "Mentally after the break it is hard", he said.

"Yesterday [Thursday] there were problems with fever for Emerson [Palmieri] and [Davide] Zappacosta, and a little problem after the match with the national team for Loftus-Cheek".

"If he wants to play for another season, it's right he tries to play".

The promoted side appear to be struggling to cope with the huge demands of the EPL though boss Neil Warnock has promised an attacking strategy against the Blues.

Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro have jostled for places at the start of the season, while Ross Barkley's place seems to have been taken by Mateo Kovacic, after he started the season in midfield.

Aron Gunnarsson is set for a return for Cardiff which will be a huge boost to the Bluebirds.

Josh Murphy is the only other doubt, as he recovers from a knock.

Although Chelsea have been playing like unstoppable this season, their defense has been bad so far.

Conte won the Premier League title and FA Cup in his two years in charge but it was clear that he was looking for a way out.

Warnock revealed he was left disappointed with the Premier League giants after being told he would be kept in touch in regards to Tammy Abraham's future.

"I think he has the capacity to make history for Chelsea again".

The 32-year-old has made 165 Premier League appearances for Arsenal since joining from Málaga in 2013.
