Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is the first manager in Chelsea’s history to remain unbeaten in his first nine Premier League game in charge.
Ross Barkley’s late goal ensured the Blues maintained our unbeaten start to the season, with Manchester City and Liverpool, the other teams to remain unbeaten.
Sarri’s record is one better than what Jose Mourinho managed in 2004 and Luiz Felipe Scolari managed in 2008. Both managers were unbeaten in their first eight games in charge of Chelsea but lost their ninth games.
While Mourinho went on to lead Chelsea to the title that season, Scolari got sacked months later after failing to sustain the momentum.
Chelsea fans will be hoping the brilliant start we’ve had under Sarri is maintained and it will be nice to end the season with a title.
How long do you think Chelsea unbeaten run will last?
