Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says he is open to the idea of former captain John Terry joining the coaching staff at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea take on Cardiff at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, with Sarri looking to become just the fourth manager to win his first five Premier League games after Carlo Ancelotti, Craig Shakespeare and Pep Guardiola.

The Belgian winger was Chelsea's saviour today, scoring a hat-trick to ensure Chelsea's fifth victory from five matches as they came from a goal down to beat Cardiff 4-1.

It was yet a no show situation for Nigeria global Victor Moses, as he was left out in Chelsea squad that hammered visiting Cardiff 4-1 at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Chelsea are now second in the Premier League with 10 goals, and only defending champions Manchester City have more with 11.

While the Premier League only dates back to 1992-93, it requires a long trek through history to find the last time any English top-flight duo managed it.

Liverpool's first win away at Tottenham in four attempts for Klopp was another sign of the progress made under the German, particularly as they suffered a 4-1 thrashing at Wembley last season.

"I think he can spend less energy than now, ' he said".

But Hazard was keen to praise his attacking partner, Olivier Giroud, for his contribution to Chelsea's win. Giroud laid on the assists for the first two of his teammate's three goals on the day.

Sarri has been impressed with the Brazilian defender, as he said: "David has a big future here - he will be very useful for us".

"Chelsea is his home, of course".

"He's a target man, maybe the best in the world I think", he said during post-match interview.

"I have my idea, I have decided, but I would like to wait before I tell you my decision to speak with the players and the club".
