Maurizio Sarri all Smiles after Another Pleasant Record

When Maurizio Sarri joined Chelsea from Napoli, he made it clear that he came to the bridge for serious business and that he wanted to win titles. The manager seems to be walking the talk if his set of results until now are anything to go by.

He is still the only manager in Europe’s top five leagues to taste defeat in any of the competitions he has taken part in. Apart from the English Premier League, Chelsea also takes part in the Uefa Europa League, the FA cup and the Capital One Cup.

Maurizio Sarri today made Premier League history in stretching his unbeaten start as Chelsea boss to 12 games.

The Italian was handed the reins at Stamford Bridge over the summer, with the managerial baton picked up from fellow countryman Antonio Conte.

He was charged with the task of forcing the Blues back into title contention, with a humbling slump endured by the west London club after capturing the crown in 2016-17.


Sarri has made a faultless start to that quest, with Chelsea yet to come unstuck in the current campaign.

They were held in their latest outing, with Everton able to take a point from a goalless draw.

The Blues are, however, perched among the Premier League frontrunners and well placed to mount a push for the summit.

Sarri is leading that charge, with the former Napoli boss now the proud owner of a notable record.

Chelsea were defeated in the Community Shield curtain-raiser against Manchester City back in August, but have suffered no reversals across all competitions since then.

They are making positive progress in the Premier League, Carabao Cup and Europa League as a result.

In their top-flight campaign, they opened up with five successive victories before grinding out a 0-0 draw at capital rivals West Ham.

They have dropped further points against fellow heavyweights Liverpool and Manchester United since then, with Everton the fourth side to deny them victory.

Sarri will be hoping that he can stretch his record-setting efforts towards the end of the calendar year, but is about to take in an enforced rest during the international break.

When Chelsea return to action, they will do so at Wembley Stadium when taking in a derby date with old adversaries Tottenham on November 24, a fixture Maurizio Sarri looks to put to bed.

Do you think Sarri can propel Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in charge?
