Chelsea started the 2018-19 season with a win over Huddersfield town with Pedro, Jorginho N’Golo Kante getting on the scorer’s sheet.
The Blues convincing display against the Premier League minnows has given their fans strong believe that they could go on to win the Premier League trophy this season at the expense of Manchester City, who are the current title holders.
The question is can Sarri achieve what Conte achieved during his first season at Stamford Bridge in the 2016-17 season?
Conte, who was sacked by the club’s hierarchy was able to lift the premier league in his debut season at the West London club despite taking over the club – who failed to qualify for Champions League as at then.
Sarri’s summer signings — Kepa Arrizabalaga and Jorginho — were lively throughout the game, and that will surely serve as motivation to other players under Sarri’s watch and tutelage.
Though winning the League might be a too-soon task for the former Napoli manager, he has the squad and experience to lead the team to the title.
However, he must ensure he never drop points in ‘easy fixtures’ if he must have a title-winning debut season with the Blues.
Manchester City are on the mission to retain their title by the end of the season, and that Pep Guardiola is ready to do all he could to defend their Premier League glory.
So we strongly believe Chelsea will end up in the 3rd position this season.
