Sarri makes EPL history

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is only the 4th manager in the EPL era to win his first 5 games – and the second Italian after Carlo Ancelotti.

The Italian arrived after a lengthy legal battle with Napoli and when pre-season training had already begun, but is already proving why the Stamford Bridge hierarchy were so determined to sign him.

Sarri took to the EPL like a duck to water, ensuring Chelsea have their best start to a EPL season since 2010.

He also joined the record books as one of only four Coaches to win their opening five EPL games.

Curiously, he is the second Italian after Ancelotti did the same at Chelsea on his way to the Double in 2009-10.

Pep Guardiola achieved it at Man City, while Craig Shakespeare made the ideal caretaker manager’s contribution to Leicester in 2017.
