Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri claimed he is dumbfounded Manuel Pellegrini is having a tough start to the season.
The former Manchester City coach who had titles in his curriculum had struggled in his return to the English Premier League.
However, Sarri had enjoyed a good spell in England which sees him as one of the only two clubs who is yet to taste both draw and defeat in the EPL.
The 59-year-old boss spoke in the pre-match conference that he was shocked West Ham had a blunt start to the season under a top-flight manager.
“I have seen the five matches of West Ham in the Premier League. I think they are a very good team. I think the position in the table of West Ham is not reality.”
However, Pellegrini had a birthday to recall when he got off the mark with a convincing 3-1 win against Everton last week.
The former Malaga manager will now face a Herculean task as he locks on with the Blues who boast of 100% record in the league.
Sarri came with an ambition to help Chelsea vaporize the old defensive culture to an elusive attacking style Pep Guardiola dreads.
No question about Sarri’s style as Hazard is enjoying a wonderful spell under the Italian boss, making him the leading top scorer after notching 5 goals to his tally.
The talisman was unused in yet another victory at PAOK on Thursday but will be poised to secure his position when they encounter the team whom they lost to last season.
