Maurizio Sarri is just 12 games into his Chelsea career, but the 59-year-old is already setting records in the English Premier League.

Sarri joined Chelsea during the summer from Italian side Napoli, and the Italian has got Chelsea playing a more attacking and possession football.

Sarri has now gone 12 league games unbeaten at the start of his Chelsea career – a feat that hasn’t been achieved in 26 years of the Premier League.

With the draw against Everton, Sarri’s run of 12 games unbeaten in the league has set him a record that takes him clear of former Nottingham Forest boss Frank Clark, whose 11 games during the 1994/95 season had stood for 24 years.

Speaking about the landmark, Sarri said: “I’m very proud. I have to say thank you to the club because they gave me a very good team. I have to say thank you to my players and my staff.

“But today I would have preferred three points to the record.”

Jose Mourinho and Luiz Felipe Scolari, had each gone eight games unbeaten at the start of their Chelsea managerial careers, in 2004 and 2008 respectively
