Sarri on Hazard: He may be the best in Europe

New boss Sarri became just the fourth Premier League manager to win his first five fixtures in the division, following in the footsteps of Carlo Ancelotti, Pep Guardiola and Craig Shakespeare.

Chelsea kept pace with Liverpool at the top of the table.

Cardiff took good advantage of the situation with a smart set-piece routine resulting in the opening goal for Sol Bamba, but were swiftly pegged back - and ultimately destroyed - by Eden Hazard.

Sarri has been candid about Chelsea's defensive frailties, and those shortcomings were exposed in full when Bamba handed the visitors the shock lead.

Sarri has handled his star man well, implementing a style of football that suits Chelsea's most creative influence and one which could lift the Belgian to the heights of previous seasons.

In the documents , it is stated FEMA "will curtail training, travel and public engagement in response to the cuts". The document suggests the most recent transfers were at least partly a result of "increasing operational demands".

That was however 21 minutes after visiting Cardiff had shot into the lead thanks to Ivorian import Souleymane Bamba. Pedro's cross found Olivier Giroud, who laid the ball off for Hazard, allowing him to unleash a strike which deflected in off Bamba.

Warnock may expect more of his forwards in future, offering little to profit off the chances his midfield did create and leaving Cardiff never looking like they would get back into the game after going 2-1 down. The 27-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant start to his season with five goals and two assists so far, but Sarri believes he can go even further.

Chelsea maintained their 100% start to the Premier League season by brushing aside newly promoted Cardiff City 4-1 at Stamford Bridge earlier today.

Hazard inspired a fifth victory in a row for the Blues as he netted a hat-trick against a spirited Cardiff City.

Terry made 702 appearances for the Blues, winning five Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, three League Cups and a UEFA Champions League title. The striker looked rich in confidence after his drought-breaking goal for France last weekend as a pair of delicate touches late in the first half sliced open a Cardiff defence that until then appeared in good order.
