Premier League Trophy

Prior to the season expectations were fairly low at Stamford Bridge, but Sarri has certainly done a fantastic job in transitioning the squad to his way of football.

The impact he can have was shown at Napoli so it is exciting times for Chelsea moving forward. Punters have now been using the latest bet365 sign up offer, with Chelsea the clear third favourites for the title behind Liverpool and the defending champions Manchester City who seem to have improved further this season.

Under Sarri, Chelsea are now a very tough team to beat. They are one of three sides yet to taste defeat in the league following the opening eleven fixtures. Chelsea are currently just two points off the top with 27 points, which shows the fantastic start they have had.

This has also included picking up points from teams around them, with the early victory over Arsenal and a draw recently against Liverpool. A game that Chelsea will feel they should have won.

A Sarri led side is all about passing and that is certainly what Chelsea do, led by the controlling force of Jorginho in the middle of the park. He is all but set to break the passing record come the end of the season in just his first in England.

This style of play has perfectly moulded within the side and none more so than with Hazard. The Belgium star has always been on the cusp of greatness, but really seems to now be stepping into those shoes and is without a doubt the current star of the premier league campaign. This is shown in the fact he is already a short priced favourite to land the PFA Players’ player award come the end of the season.

So what next for Chelsea?

They have picked up ten points from their last four league games, and in the process scoring twelve goals and conceding just three. They now have a home game against Everton, then an away derby against rivals Tottenham, in a game which could be key come the end of the season. Tottenham are another side in form, so this will be a big test for the blues.

Following this it is two games with six points expected against Fulham and Wolves before the big top of the table clash against Manchester City. If Chelsea can enter that game with confidence high following a run of victories it sets up for one of the biggest games of the Premier league season.
