Chelsea FC
A Fourth Straight Win!
By Gary Watton
September 1 2018

For the second week running, the Blues had to be extremely patient against bus-parking opponents and scored twice again deep into the second half. Pedro is in a rich vein of goal scoring form, and he finally opened the scoring with a decent strike from the edge of the penalty area. The excellent Hazard took a pass from Alonso and stroked home the decisive second. It was good to achieve a clean sheet and it's heartening to reel off four straight wins at the start of the league campaign. Bigger challenges lie ahead, but Sarri's brave new world is ticking along very nicely indeed.
