Sarri on Hazard: He may be the best in Europe

Only because after the first season the players understood the difficulty of this kind of match.

Chelsea take on Cardiff at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, with Sarri looking to become just the fourth manager to win his first five Premier League games after Carlo Ancelotti, Craig Shakespeare and Pep Guardiola.

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the worldwide break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

"Nobody will play the ideal season".

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said Florence was set to cover nearly all of the state in several metres of water. Police said 150 to 200 residents have been rescued earlier on Friday and 150 or more were still awaiting rescue.

However, the visitors had to see out a nervy final few seconds when Erik Lamela skillfully volleyed home from a narrow angle and Son Heung-min had a penalty appeal waived away with the final attack of the game.

His form has been ridiculously good and he turned in one of his finest ever displays in a Chelsea shirt against Cardiff. "But I don't know anything about the new rules of FIFA", Sarri continued.

"(He) just wants us to play and to find space between the lines so then Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Cesc Fabregas can find us", said Hazard.

But Chelsea star Eden Hazard scored in the 37th and 44th minute respectively to give the Blues the lead thanks to Frenchman Olivier Giroud who provided the assists.

The utility said it was "working with the appropriate authorities to investigate this incident in order to understand its cause". The former head of the agency, Brigham McCown, called the series of gas explosions "unprecedented, at least in recent memory".

"I remember in my first season in Naples the average points per match during the season was 2.28, but the average after the global break was only 1.31 or 1.32 so I know that the match after the break is very hard", he told Chelsea's official website.

Chelsea's fifth victory from their first five Premier League matches took them top of the Premier League table on goal difference, but the result did not shake Sarri's conviction that his team remain a level below genuine title contenders. "Now I have changed my mind".

But they had to withstand some late pressure after Andre Grey halved their advantage and Nemanja Matic saw a late red card.

But Chelsea have learned fast enough to win and entertain so far.
