Pedro and Hazard help Chelsea beat Bournemouth to maintain 100% record

01 September 2018 04:09
Maurizio Sarri has been at pains to insist Chelsea are a work in progress under his stewardship yet, a month into the new campaign, their perfect record remains intact. This was another win which had to be ground out against stubborn opposition but, as Eden Hazard skipped through to score the hosts’ second late on, after Pedro’s opener, the whole occasion had a very familiar feel. It all ended up appearing deceptively comfortable.Not that the head coach will be satisfied as yet. The huff and puff endured for over an hour will have left him dissatisfied, and the nagging concern remains that his team are still too reliant upon Hazard’s quick feet and vision against teams who seek to clog up the play, as Bournemouth did for long periods here. But leaning upon a world-class talent is no chore when he delivers form this dazzling.
