The Blues have made a brilliant start to life under the Italian head coach following a return of five successive victories.
Chelsea FC started the Sarri era with a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town at John Smith’s Stadium on the opening weekend of the season.
Goals from Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Pedro Rodriguez helped Sarri to make a winning start to life at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea FC have since notched up victories over Arsenal, Newcastle United, Bournemouth and Cardiff City to secure top spot in the Premier League table.
However, Carragher was particularly impressed with one aspect of Chelsea FC’s style of play under the Italian head coach.
“The first thing his team did in the Premier League was away at Huddersfield with the kick-off and you look at it and think, OK, that’s different,” Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports. “You had seven players almost on the halfway line.
“The reason I liked it is that I am sick of teams taking the kick-off and ended up back with their own goalkeeper. You have got the ball on the halfway line. Look to go forward.
“They are already on the front foot. They have actually taken nine kick-offs, Chelsea, and there is only one where they have not done that. At least there is a plan. People think they are a waste of time and they are not important. They are important and if you can gain an advantage from it then fantastic.”
Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League for the second time in three seasons.
