Maurizio Sarri Set New Premier League Managerial Record

Published

on

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has set a new managerial record for the best unbeaten run from the start of a Premier League career after the Stamford Bridge outfit stretched their superb run of form to 12 without defeat in the top flight after Sunday pulsating stalemate with Everton.

Jordan Pickford pulled off a string of fine saves to deny Chelsea an opener, with Marcos Alonso superb strike hitting the woodwork and Alvaro Morata having a goal.

The stalemate meant Sarri took Frank Clark’s record for the longest Premier League unbeaten run of a new manager, when he was at ­Nottingham Forest in 1994, but not losing may not be adequate this season.

The only time the Blue’s started a season unbeaten in their first 12 Premier League games, they proceeded to win the title under Jose Mourinho in 2014-15, yet Sarri isn’t sure of a repeat.

Manchester City set a Premier League record by winning the EPL title with a 100 points last season and Sarri is now ­worried that City and Liverpool are on course to hit the century mark this time around.

At this moment, the average of points for City and Liverpool is high,” said Sarri. “I consider 100 points. So it’s exceptionally hard to stay close to these teams.”

On his own record, Sarri included: “I’m exceptionally proud about it. I know extremely well I have to say thank you to the club and thank you to my players. finally, I have to say thank you to my staff. But, of course, I’d prefer three points today.”

Chelsea is also the only team in Europe’stop five division yet to taste a defeat in any competition, following Juventus’ Champions League loss to Manchester United in midweek.

Sarri’s streak looks set to face one of its hardest tests yet when Chelsea visit Tottenham in a London derby after the international break.
