Liverpool and Chelsea set Premier League first with ideal starts

Maurizio Sarri invites John Terry to join Chelsea coaching staff Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri Offers John Terry A Chance To Come 'Home'
Frederick Owens | 16 September, 2018, 14:59

Maurizio Sarri has held talks with John Terry over a return "home" to Chelsea as part of his coaching staff.

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

"Nobody will play the flawless season".

The hosts were then awarded a penalty in the 80th minute when Bamba took out Willian in the area so Hazard had the flawless chance to complete his hat-trick and the Belgian star didn't disappoint as he made it 3-1 from the spot. His side had to come back from behind to claim the three points.

The newly promoted visitors took the lead when Joe Ralls' free-kick was headed by captain Sean Morrison into the path of Sol Bamba, who volleyed home.

Neil Etheridge twice denied Mateo Kovacic an immediate response but could do little about Hazard's unerring bottom-corner finish that restored parity.

Liverpool will have the chance to claim top spot, though, as they host Southampton at Anfield on Saturday, while both clubs play in Europe first.

Chelsea's excellence in possession across the opening few weeks may have masked what seems genuine strength of character.

Jamaal Lascelles will be assessed ahead of Newcastle United's visit to Selhurst Park after being forced off against Arsenal.

He might not have been on the scoresheet here, but the recalled Giroud justified his selection with two telling assists for Hazard that turned the match around.

That meant that Isaac Hayden got an outing against his former club although he did not have the best game, struggling throughout and seemingly tiring quite badly towards the end in what was a disappointing display. The midfielder should certainly have converted the second, a one-on-one with Etheridge, and his hard afternoon came to a frustrating end five minutes into the second half as he limped off with an apparent muscle problem in his right leg.

Despite the fact the Belgian didn't start Chelsea's first two games of the season, he's already notched five goals for the season.

The 23-year-old was featuring for the first time since he was dismissed at Cardiff City earlier in the season, and looked like a man who had been without game time for nearly a month.

- Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has gone 11 Premier League games without a win as manager for the first time (W0 D5 L6).

For Cardiff, defeat extends their winless run to six games, their worst spell since Neil Warnock was appointed manager in October 2016.

Chelsea on the other, have failed to agree to a contract renewal with Hazard and he has just two years left on his current existing deal and the summer window is still to close for the La Liga.
