Maurizio Sarri fully prepared for Chelsea's busy month ahead

Spurs PSG Chelsea Napoli City- The brutal run that could shape Liverpool's season

Chelsea prepare to face Cardiff City first on Saturday and Sarri's liberal approach has helped him win over his dressing room quickly.

Hazard prepared for the Cardiff game with some encouragement and advice from Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri on game-eve.

As a team, though, the Blues were not at their fluid best despite matching their best-ever start to a Premier League season with a fifth win from five.

Sarri was asked whether Terry could return in a playing role or strictly a coaching one.

"Chelsea's a big club with the opportunity to fight every year for titles and there is also pressure to get results quickly", Luiz told the official Chelsea Magazine.

Chelsea maintained their 100 percent start to the season as Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick to secure a 4-1 victory over Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

"Look at the Champions League in 2012". It's very hard. The gap last season was 30 points so I think to go above 30 points in one season is very, very hard. "But now I change my mind because maybe he is the best", said Sarri of the man crowned the second-best player at the World Cup this summer. "This is amazing", he added.

The 94-cap playmaker already has five goals in as many league games this season, and appears to only have eyes for more.

"I don't want to go there and not have a shot on target, but we've got to have players at their best abilities to give them a game".

Liverpool's first win away at Tottenham in four attempts for Klopp was another sign of the progress made under the German, particularly as they suffered a 4-1 thrashing at Wembley last season.

"I think so. I hope not".

"At the moment, for me, in my opinion, Liverpool and Manchester City are better than us". My feeling is that now we are not a very solid team in the defensive phase. We have to play seven matches in 23 days, so I had to work.

Cardiff remained in with a chance of extracting something from the match until substitute Willian arrived to end the resistance, first drawing a Bamba challenge that Hazard converted from the spot in the 80th minute, and then delightfully getting himself on the scoresheet by picking out the top right corner three minutes later.
