Makelele confident that Sarri can lead Chelsea to success

Goalkeeper: Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has had a solid start to life in the Premier League following his world-record move from Athletic Bilbao this summer so the Spaniard is certain to keep his place between the sticks again this weekend.

The 31-year old defender, who is in his second spell with the London club, has bounced back and featured in all the four opening matches as Chelsea maintained their ideal start to the new season under the Italian.

Chelsea welcome Cardiff to Stamford Bridge when the Premier League resumes following the global break.

The Brazilian has said: "First of all he's a great person, great as a human. He is a great coach".

Chelsea defender David Luiz has hailed manager Maurizio Sarri's footballing philosophy and insists that he is enjoying playing under the Italian.

Luiz said: 'He wants to play with the ball, he wants to play with intensity, to work on the details and to give us all the information he can about the next game and the opponent.

I know I have two years of contract left but I hope to stay more years in the Premier League.

"But the Premier League is very competitive, other teams have a lot of good players and it will not be easy".

"Every week he tries to make the best plan possible for the exact game and this is great because he is working in the best way for the team, for the collective".

"I think Chelsea changed a lot", Makelele told reporters.

Chelsea are back in action on Saturday when they host newly-promoted Cardiff City.

Injury problems allied to him falling out with Conte restricted Luiz to just ten league appearances last season but he looks set to be a central figure in the new regime.

"But it's a good pressure, and I think if you don't feel this pressure you stop being the type of player to play for Chelsea".
