Maurizio Sarri backed to make Premier League history against West Ham United

Chelsea have won all the fixtures so far this season

Chelsea had a busy summer as they were looking to bolster their squad after an underwhelming campaign, despite winning the FA Cup back in May. Maurizio Sarri was appointed as the new manager after Antonio Conte was sacked.

The Italian brought players like Jorginho from Napoli, Kepa from Athletic Bilbao and Mateo Kovacic on a season long loan from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window. The Blues also managed to keep hold of key players like Eden Hazard, Willian and N’Golo Kante, as they were heavily linked with exits.

The London outfit have won all the 5 Premier League fixtures so far this season against Huddersfield, Arsenal, Newcastle United, Bournemouth and Cardiff City. They are only 1 of the 2 teams to have 100 percent record, other being Liverpool and are currently on top of the table.

They have been tipped off as one of the favourites to win the Premier League title this season after an excellent start.

Former Liverpool star Michael Owen believes Chelsea will beat West Ham United on Sunday and Sarri will make Premier League history by becoming only the third manager to win his first six fixtures. Other two managers are Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti.

Owen told BetVictor: “I watched West Ham’s win at Goodison at the weekend and thought it was an excellent result for the Hammers although it is fair to say that on the day Everton were there for the taking.

“West Ham have lost more PL London derbies than any other club and I feel Maurizio Sarri will become just the third PL manager to win his first six games in the competition after Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola.

“That said I expect the hosts to give them a real game in what should be a cracking derby.”
