How good are Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea? We're about to find out

"It was clear. I think in the last two or three matches that we had a problem at the beginning of the match".

"I think it (the result) tells the story because we stayed stubborn, they defended and counter-attacked, so we had a few really good moments we didn't score which is not a big problem if we stay on track. So, we have to approach the match in a different way, with application and determination". It's not a tactical problem. However, the quality of players will make for a very tough test, but one which they have to pass. They are very unsafe, very risky in the offensive phase, very risky in the short counter-attacks. For the neutrals, they will hope for an exciting game with a lot of talented players on show.

Brighton thought they were heading for all three points after Glenn Murray put them ahead early in the first half and James Maddison was sent off after 30 minutes. "We have some difficulties entering into the match". "We must be careful not to lose the ball in our half, because they are very risky in these situations".

Olivier Giroud grabbed a consolation for Chelsea late on, but Maurizio Sarri's unbeaten start as Blues boss comes to an end.


Sarri is full of praise for the job Mauricio Pochettino has done at Tottenham, but he reiterated that he does not see either club as genuine title contenders.

"But Manchester United have enough quality in that team to go on a run of games and if you go six, seven games unbeaten, they will push up towards that top four".

"It's fantastic. Our performance was very good and we deserved to win". For sure, they will be in the first four positions. "Usually in a season there is a surprise".


Sarri has taken the league by storm this season and Chelsea - who were being tipped as a side who would challenge for the top four - are now among the favourites to win the Premier League title this season.
