Impressive Chelsea, Liverpool maintain lead over chasing Man City

New boss Sarri became just the fourth Premier League manager to win his first five fixtures in the division, following in the footsteps of Carlo Ancelotti, Pep Guardiola and Craig Shakespeare.

Eden Hazard's hat trick ensured Chelsea kept its flawless start to the Premier League season with a 4-1 victory over Cardiff 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.

More history could have be made on Saturday as Watford also began the season perfectly, with four wins in four.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard scores his side's first goal during their English Premier League soccer match between Chelsea and Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge stadium in London Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018.

Eden Hazard is now the top goal scorer in the Premier League. Another three points would have seen a trio-teams start perfectly through five for the first time ever in English top-flight history but it was not to be as Manchester United downed the Hornets 2-1.

Adrian Peterson moves up the charts in Week 1
Tony Dorsett is next on the all-time list with 12,739 yards. "God has really gifted me with tremendous talent", Peterson said. With a dominant defensive effort, Washington crushed the Arizona Cardinals , 24-6, to win its first season opener since 2012.

"I think Hazard can improve more", Sarri added.

But Hazard was keen to praise his attacking partner, Olivier Giroud, for his contribution to Chelsea's win.

"Now we have to prove that and do it again and again".

City and Chelsea await in Liverpool's next three league games and secured comfortable home victories to boost their own title chances.

"Hazard is a good player, but that's what you're going to get when you're playing against these teams", Warnock said.

"I think his philosophy to live life is already great because he wants to enjoy every day, he wants to be happy and he wanted to take this opportunity to start one more chapter in his life". "There was interest from other clubs, but things were clear after speaking with Chelsea - the club is counting on me and I feel good".
