3 Talking Points After Chelsea’s Outstanding Win Vs Cardiff City

Chelsea have made a perfect start to their league campaign under Maurizio Sarri after winning five successive matches in the Premier League. The Pensioners managed to claim a comfortable 4-1 victory at Stamford Bridge against Cardiff City which has seen them go top of the league standings ahead of Liverpool who have an inferior goal difference.

Despite going a goal down early on when Sol Bamba scored for the Bluebirds, the home team came back and took the lead at half-time courtesy of a brace from Eden Hazard. The Belgian completed his hattrick in the 80th minute from the penalty spot before Willian came off the bench to put the icing on the cake when he scored a long-range beauty for Chelsea. 

Here are three major talking points after the Pensioners’ glorious 4-1 win over Cardiff City on Saturday.

Sarri’s Chelsea Has A Lot Of Character

The fact that the Pensioners came back into the game in such outstanding fashion despite suffering an early setback goes on to show that the current Chelsea team has a lot of character and will not give up without a fight. Even during their match against Arsenal, the Blues showed a lot of determination to claim a victory even after the Gunners came back from two goals down to equalise before half-time.

Sarri’s players have already displayed enough grit and courage to be considered as a realistic challenger for the Premier League title.

Eden Hazard Is Still Chelsea’s Main Man

The Belgian winger has been in a rich vein of form this season, and he once again proved his worth against Cardiff City. The Chelsea star scored a hattrick to help his side complete the comeback and claim maximum points from this encounter.

There is no doubt that Hazard is still Chelsea’s main threat and so, as long as he keeps firing on all cylinders for the Pensioners, we can expect Sarri’s team to continue their domination in the Premier League.

Tougher Tests Lie Ahead

Even though Chelsea deserves a lot of credit for winning all five of their league matches, the cold hard truth is that they are yet to face off against any of the top teams (in the present scenario we are not counting Arsenal as one of the Top 4 teams in the league) of the Premier League. There would surely be much tougher tests which lie ahead for Sarri’s men and it is their results during those matches which will determine whether they can go all the way and give Manchester City a run for their money in the title race.
