Maurizio Sarri claims Chelsea's good start to the season has been due to luck, ahead of their game against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Three thoughts on Chelsea's 3-1 win vs.

Premier League - Follow the Football match between Chelsea and Crystal Palace live with Eurosport.

The last manager to avoid a loss for as long in their first Premier League season in charge was Frank Clark, whose Nottingham Forest side were unbeaten across their first 11 games in 1994.

Meanwhile, had earlier reported that Chelsea gaffer Maurizio Sarri has given the club's fans worrying news after he admitted that he does not know when Belgian star Eden Hazard will return to action.

MF Jorginho, 7 - Was slightly at fault for Palace's goal as James McArthur slipped in Townsend from the space he usually occupies, but the Italy worldwide kept Chelsea's passing and pressing ticking over while making a few more interceptions than usual to snuff out counter-attacks.

This smart video from Chelsea seems to neatly sum up the rich vein of form the Blues are in at the minute.

FW Willian, 6 - This was his 11th start in a row and while he generally looks more unsafe cutting in from the left flank, there was a noticeable lack of pop and imagination in his play against Palace's massed defensive ranks.

Palace should welcome Wilfried Zaha back in to the side after he recovered from a minor shoulder problem that kept him out of the League Cup defeat to Middlesbrough.

Ross Barkley is also set for a recall after being rested in midweek and the former Everton midfielder will be looking to maintain his impressive form of late.

"And they have a plan in place to sign Eden Hazard".

18+ only. Ts&Cs apply.

And though it looks unlikely the Eagles will make it three from four at Stamford Bridge, with Zaha getting at the Chelsea defence Palace are practically a sure bet to score.

Goalscoring continues to be Palace's biggest weakness: they've already drawn six blanks this campaign (all competitions) and two of their seven league goals have been penalties.

His introduction for the first time since the draw with Manchester United appeared more likely when Palace levelled after Luiz had been caught cold.

Chelsea scored with their first shot on target.

"I was really pleased when he came in the other week in that Europa League game and scored a hat-trick".
