Only Man City and Liverpool are challenging for title - Sarri

"There was interest from other clubs, but things were clear after speaking with Chelsea - the club is counting on me and I feel good".

Liverpool now top the table with four wins out of four, though Chelsea and Watford are also on 12 points after their ideal starts to the season. "I like that development", said Klopp.

"I think Hazard can improve more", Sarri added. The Spaniard is Chelsea's vice-captain, in Cahill's absence, he steps into the role.

Having got in front, Chelsea took their foot off the gas at the start of the second-half and could have been made to pay when Ralls and Bobby Reid shot just wide from the edge of the area.

"Now we have to prove that and do it again and again".

On paper, this game looks like a straightforward win for Chelsea.

Playing away at one of the Premier Leagues top clubs, Cardiff would have been forgiven for locking up but they very much played the way they wanted to play.

"In the period he didn't play, we never doubted Leroy's quality", said Guardiola. I'm lucky because I have a good team, good players, not only one.

Chelsea were stunned when an unmarked Sol Bamba flicked home to put Cardiff ahead in the 16th minute, but Hazard replied twice before halftime as the home side upped the tempo. However, they shouldn't underestimate Cardiff.

"If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy", Sarri said.

Hazard scored his third goal in the 80th minute via a penalty before Brazil global Willian netted the fourth and last goal for the Blues to win the match 4-1.

United further eased the pressure on Jose Mourinho by ending Watford's 100 percent record at Vicarage Road.

He might not have been on the scoresheet here, but the recalled Giroud justified his selection with two telling assists for Hazard that turned the match around.

Mesut Ozil quietened his critics with his first Arsenal goal since February at St. James's Park as the Gunners ground out a third straight win.
