Cardiff City scored the first goal in the 15th minute through Sol Bamba who was superbly assisted by Sean Morrison.

But the Blues came back with a vengeance and have now won their first five games of the season.

Hazard said this after him and the Frenchman combined well in Chelsea's 4-1 win over Cardiff on Saturday.

Eden Hazard is now the top goal scorer in the Premier League. "I am not able to think about this as a job, like work".

WORST PLAYER - All the central roles were a disappointment for Chelsea really, with perhaps some hangover in the squad from the global break.

Despite the fact the Belgian didn't start Chelsea's first two games of the season, he's already notched five goals for the season.

Having got in front, Chelsea took their foot off the gas at the start of the second-half and could have been made to pay when Ralls and Bobby Reid shot just wide from the edge of the area.

However, the visitors had to see out a nervy final few seconds when Erik Lamela skillfully volleyed home from a narrow angle and Son Heung-min had a penalty appeal waived away with the final attack of the game.

Sarri has been impressed with the Brazilian defender, as he said: "David has a big future here - he will be very useful for us".

The Premier League match between Chelsea and Cardiff will be broadcast live on CNBC. "There was interest from other clubs, but things were clear after speaking with Chelsea - the club is counting on me and I feel good". However, they shouldn't underestimate Cardiff. Pedro's cross found Olivier Giroud, who laid the ball off for Hazard, allowing him to unleash a strike which deflected in off Bamba.

The in-form Hazard instigated a hasty turnaround that became a comfortable three points when Willian curled home seven minutes from the end, ensuring the Blues inched into top spot on goal difference.
