The statistics behind Maurizio Sarri’s scintillating start as Chelsea manager

Maurizio Sarri and Chelsea continued their fine start to the season by emphatically dispatching of Cardiff City 4-1.

An Eden Hazard hat-trick and a goal from Willian secured the Blues their fifth win from five this season.

Sarri has made a thoroughly impressive start to life as manager at Stamford Bridge and here are the statistics to show just how well the Italian is doing.

Sarri’s scintillating start

Five wins in their first five Premier League fixtures; Sarri looks to have successfully translated his managerial exploits from Italy to England.

He becomes just the fifth Premier League manager to have won his first five fixtures in the competition.

Good omens…

Two of the three times the West London club have won all their first five games they have gone on to be crowned champions.

Chelsea’s start to the season certainly places them in a great position to claim title number six.

Sarri utilising Hazard

Being arguably the division’s most naturally gifted talents, Hazard has always been key to Chelsea’s success.

Sarri has so far worked wonders with the Belgian who has shone whilst the new manager has been West London.

Hazard netted a hat-trick for Chelsea this afternoon becoming the fourth player to score multiple Premier League hat-tricks.

The 27-year-old has now been directly involved in seven goals in five appearances this season.
