Dual-track perfection can't last much longer as Chelsea hosts Liverpool in a showdown at Stamford Bridge in two weeks.

"No, I can not change my mind for one match,"the Italian responded whether he thought he had changed his mind over his side's chances. But now I change my mind because maybe he is the best", said Sarri".

I think that this season is too soon for Chelsea, but I hope not.

"Hazard can improve more".

"But [to do that he has to] spend less energy far from the goal and play in the last 25 metres". Only because after the first season the players understood the difficulty of this kind of match. "Fortunately, we have very strong young players: [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek, [Callum] Hudson-Odoi, [Ethan] Ampadu. and I'd like to give them the right space".

"We have a lot of freedom on the pitch, and at the moment when we try and do something, it's coming off".

Then just seven minutes later Giroud's telescopic stretch redirected Pedro's low cross into the onrushing Hazard's path, and the 27-year-old delivered once more.

After two weeks of an worldwide break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum. I have no clue exactly what happened.

The west London side have won the Premier League title in two of the last four seasons. It's one where we've got to get the best out of what we've got. He has covered the Barclays Premier League and the Champions League since 1982, and has one of the world's most recognizable soccer voices.

"If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy", Sarri said.

The feeling of being outclassed is one Cardiff may become accustomed to, having failed to significantly strengthen over the summer on their return to the top flight.

Cardiff had picked up just two points in 0-0 draws with a man advantage against Newcastle and Huddersfield prior to their visit to the capital. "We need to improve, but we are able to and can improve very quickly".

Captain Sean Morrison crept free and headed a lofted free-kick across goal, with defender Bamba nipping in front of the cover to flick home with a poacher's finish.

The Belgian global got on the end of an Olivier Giroud pass to fire in to the bottom corner for 1-1.

Chelsea were stunned when an unmarked Sol Bamba flicked home to put Cardiff ahead in the 16th minute, but Hazard replied twice before halftime as the home side upped the tempo.
