Chelsea boss Sarri upbeat over Kovacic injury

John Terry Chelsea

The Blues made it five consecutive wins yesterday to start the new Premier League season.

It's been a rough beginning for Cardiff, as they've only managed to secure two points in their first four games.

The playmaker scored a stylish hat-trick as the Blues coasted to a 4-1 win over Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

But Sarri, whose Chelsea side have defied expectations and could be a surprise challenger for the title come May, believes it's still only City and Liverpool who will be fighting for the top prize.

Chelsea didn't heed that warning as a well-worked Joe Ralls free-kick was headed across goal by Sean Morrison and bundled in at the back post by Bamba.

The Belgium captain received the ball just outside the Cardiff box in the 37th and surged past a defender before driving a powerful finish across goal to equalize.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores to reach 500 goals for club and country
The big Swede netted his 500th in style, with a roundhouse kick helping him slot the ball past Toronto FC goalkeeper Alex Bono. Ibrahimovic - Sweden's all-time leading scorer with 62 goals in 116 appearances - has enjoyed an illustrious career.

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

Willian put the icing on the cake for Chelsea towards the end of the 90 minutes with a sumptuous strike that the Neil Etheridge could do nothing about.

Chelsea FC will kick off their Europa League group stage campaign on Thursday night when they take on PAOK away from home. Pedro caused plenty of problems but was very wasteful with his shooting, whilst Giroud proved an excellent provider with two assists but failed to register a shot on target himself.

His joyful penalty 10 minutes from time then furnished the 27-year-old master craftsman with the match ball, before Willian walloped home a fine fourth.

Sarri, meanwhile, reveals he is open to bringing Terry back to the club as a member of the coaching staff.

Cardiff has two points from five games. Along with the London based outfit, the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City have also commenced their Premier League season in a confident fashion.
