  • Chelsea team news

Maurizio Sarri's men continued their flawless start to the Premier League season by beating Bournemouth 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and following the worldwide break they will play host to Neil Warnock's Cardiff.

In the post-match press conference, Sarri, who has enjoyed four wins from his first four Premier League matches with Chelsea, said: "Alonso, at the moment, in this position at left-back is maybe the best in Europe".

Three thoughts on Chelsea's 2-0 win vs. Bournemouth in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old had more playing opportunities under Conte, only after he was converted to a right wing-back, but is behind Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro in Sarri's pecking order of wingers in the new season.

"His physical qualities are at a top level, I think. He's doing very well in the offensive phase", Sarri explained. But I also think he can improve in the defensive.

Despite all the games Chelsea have played so far, ex Napoli coach, Sarri Maurizio have been quite lucky as he doesn't have many players injured. It was a very hard game.

"They defended very aggressively and made the situation not so easy", told BBC Sport.

"The first half, the situation was hard". I'm really very happy to have 12 points from four matches, but I always think we can do more.

For all their dominance of the ball - they averaged over 70 per cent of the possession - Chelsea often looked to be running out of ideas against a Bournemouth side not renowned for defending. He says he learned a lot from me.

Later in the first half, he allowed Wilson to control and lay the ball off before drifting away from the striker as he moved unmarked into the penalty area.

Sarri added on Chelsea's performance against the Cherries as a collective, with a fourth successive Premier League win having been secured: "I am happy with the result and I am happy with the performance".

Chelsea's win masked another hard day for Alvaro Morata, who was largely ineffective before being replaced by Olivier Giroud in the 61st minute.
