Claude Makelele makes bold Maurizio Sarri prediction

GETTY    
   Chelsea have made a fantastic start under Sarri winning all four games

Chelsea defender David Luiz talks up manager Maurizio Sarri's footballing philosophy and insists that he is enjoying playing under the Italian. However, the 31-year-old has been reinstated in the starting line-up after the arrival of Sarri and he is apparently relishing working under him.

His free-flowing attacking style helping to appease the fans who have so far seen nothing less than a ideal start in the Premier League - taking four wins from four games prior to the worldwide break.

Chelsea legend Claude Makelele is confident that new Blues manager Maurizio Sarri can be hugely successful at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have defeated Huddersfield, Arsenal, Newcastle and Bournemouth, and are one of only three teams to boast a 100 per cent record.

Chelsea endured a hard campaign in 2017-18 and their dismal performance only helped them finish 5th in the league table, which made them unqualified to participate in the UEFA Champions League.

Indeed, the new boss was able to keep hold of all of his key players in the summer, apart from goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

While dethroning champions Manchester City might be a tough ask, Makelele - a two-time Premier League victor with the Blues - is expecting big things from Sarri.

"I never went onto the pitch in a Chelsea shirt thinking, we're going to lose today".

He has started in all four games Chelsea have played so far this season in the English Premier League.

The Chilean coach was brought in based on his experience in England with Manchester City, with whom he also bagged the 2013-14 Premier League title.

Influential players such as Eden Hazard, who has had a stellar start to the campaign, and Willian were heavily linked with moves away whilst Thibaut Courtois got his move back to Madrid, this time however with European Champions Real.

'I always say that I want to stay at Chelsea as long as possible and I am happy to stay here.
