Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher expects Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday to be a big test for Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea are unbeaten in all competitions this season and the Blues sit top of the league with Manchester City and Liverpool.

Manchester United have had a difficult start to the season and the Red Devils are placed eight in the league.

Sarri has got Chelsea playing attacking football, which is a major contrast to his two Chelsea predecessors Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte.

When asked if there has been a shift in mentality at Chelsea, Carragher told Sky Sports: “Definitely because what Mourinho did, he came in and he sort of set a template that managers afterwards sort of replicated as it was very successful.

“With Sarri coming in it’s a complete style change really and the way they’ve started has been very successful.

“There’s a long way to go in the season and I thought it would take them a little bit more time, but this is another huge test for them.

“We talk about Manchester United but for Chelsea also this is a big test.”
