Chelsea had a brilliant start to the season after getting five sparkling wins that put the Blues in the first position ahead of Liverpool. The London club could be overwhelmed by their victorious performance and have been branded as one of the finest in the league.
Only one man would not be too astonished because he’s seen more consecutive wins while with Napoli.
However, Premier league poses to be the most laborious league in the world, with top managers vying for the first position.
Maurizio Sarri will meet Premier league winner Pellegrini’s side who got their first win against Everton on Sunday.
If Sarri wins he would join the likes of Pep Guardiola’s and Carlo Ancelotti’s opening runs of successive victories as managers.
Pep Guardiola did it in 2006/17 while Ancelotti made his mark with the Blues, in 2009/10. A win for Sarri against West Ham on Sunday will see him equal the record of beginning the League’s managerial career with six consecutive wins.
What would Now be left is to face Liverpool afterwards.
But Klopp could yet spoil the flow as he’s vying for his first title as a Liverpool manager. He broke a record held since 1990 as Reds’ manager for winning his first five matches. Both teams would meet in the domestic cup before the Premier League and are currently the only club sharing the same point while Chelsea is on top on goal difference.
Liverpool’s triumvirates in Mo Salah, Saido Mane and Roberto Firmino are currently the three most feared forwards in the league. Albeit, they didn’t show much of a treat in the clash against Tottenham but they still move to suffer oppositions defense when going forward.
However, Chelsea looks indubitable with Hazard and he’s beginning to find his rhythm as one of Europe’s finest player and has already stamped his position as Chelsea’s best ever No.10.
Can Liverpool stop Chelsea?
