Maurizio Sarri has warned his Chelsea FC team not to get carried away by their strong start to the new Premier League season.

The Blues have made a brilliant start to the new campaign and they notched up their fourth win on the spin on Saturday when they claimed a 2-0 win over Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea FC have been in fine form so far this season and look to be adapting well to life under Sarri at Stamford Bridge.

The west London side are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after having finished in fifth place last term.

However, despite his side’s impressive start to the new campaign, Sarri has insisted that his team must not get carried away by their good form.

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Saturday, Sarri said: “I think it is better now to think about the next match.

“The gap at the beginning was 30 points, so I think it is very difficult to cover this gap in one season.

“I am very happy with the four matches, but only starting from now to the next match.”

Chelsea FC will look to make it five wins in a row after the international break when they take on Cardiff at Stamford Bridge.

The west London side finished fifth last term but managed to end the campaign with a trophy by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final, before Antonio Conte was sacked later in the summer.
