Maurizio Sarri says he was very happy to see his Chelsea side recover from a difficult opening 10 minutes and cruised to a 4-0 win over Burnley.

The win ensured Sarri became the first Chelsea manager to go unbeaten in his first 10 Premier League games at the club.

He said; “For 10 minutes it was very difficult at the beginning,” said Sarri. “Then we started to play very well and we managed the match well better than other matches.

“I am very happy for Alvaro, for Loftus Cheek again. I am disappointed for Giroud because today he could have scored and he needs a goal. But everything is okay we played very well, in full control for 80 minutes apart from the first 10.”

Sarri insisted he is only thinking about the next game against Derby County in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

“At the moment we have to start to think to the next match because we have to play on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup and it will be difficult,” he added.

“We need to respect them because it will be very difficult and we want to go ahead in the competition,” he said.
