Liverpool and Chelsea make Premier League history

While the Premier League only dates back to 1992-93, it requires a long trek through history to find the last time any English top-flight duo managed it.

Eden Hazard belives Olivier Giroud is the best target man in world football after the pair combined to dazzling effect in Chelsea's 4-1 win over Cardiff on Saturday.

Chelsea rarely relinquished control from that moment on, but it wasn't until substitute Willian won a penalty in the 80th that the Blues put the game beyond doubt.

"Nobody will play the flawless season".

"I think Hazard can improve more", Sarri added. "I like that development", said Klopp. "We need to improve, but we are able to and can improve very quickly".

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

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.

The Citizens lifted the league title last term under Pep Guardiola in a scintillating manner, with Chelsea finishing 5th in the standings.

As a team, though, the Blues were not at their fluid best despite matching their best-ever start to a Premier League season with a fifth win from five.

Sane tapped home Fernandinho's inviting cross inside two minutes before Silva smashed his 50th Premier League goal and Sterling completed the rout. "So yeah, for us it's a pleasure for us to play with him".

"He is 22 and this little bit of up and down can sometimes happen at this age". I am very open with him because he is the history of the club. However, they shouldn't underestimate Cardiff. I'm lucky because I have a good team, good players, not only one.

"I thought Hazard was one of the best players in Europe but now I change my mind because maybe he is the best", Sarri said after Hazard's man-of-the-match performance.
