Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri plays down his side’s Premier League title hopes despite their solid start to the new campaign.

The Italian tactician has warned his Premier league club not to be carried away by their solid start to the new season.

Chelsea have made a good start to the new season and they secured their fourth victory on the spin last Saturday when they won 2-0 against AFC Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been in brilliant form so far this term and look to be adapting pretty well to life under the Italian at Stamford Bridge.

The west London club are aiming to be one of the key contenders for the League title this term after having ended last term in fifth place.

However, despite his team’s brilliant start to the new season, the tactician has insisted that his squad must not be carried away by their brilliant form.

Speaking at his post-match presser on Saturday, the former Napoli boss said it is better now to think about the next Premier League game.

He admitted to be pleased with the four opening Premier League matches, but only starting from this period the next encounter.

The Blues will look to make it five consecutive victories after the forthcoming international break when they square up against Cardiff at home.

The west London club finished fifth last season but managed to end the season with a silverware by beating rivals Manchester United in the Emirates FA Cup final, before Italian head coach Antonio Conte was relieved of his managerial duty later in the summer.
