Four games into the new season and things are looking good at Stamford Bridge.
Under their new coach, Maurizio Sarri, Chelsea have a 100% record in the Premier League winning all four games they have played.
The latest of those victories came against AFC Bournemouth with Chelsea winning 2-0.
However, the blues didn’t have it all their own way needing two second-half goals to quash a gallant Bournemouth side who spurned several chances to take lead.
After a goalless first half, Chelsea edged ahead, in the 72nd minute when Pedro, who had replaced Willian, scored after exchanging passes with Olivier Giroud, although his shot did take a deflection to beat Asmir Begovic in the Bournemouth goal.
Although having scored, Chelsea were on top, Bournemouth always looked dangerous on the counter-attack, but it was a counter-attack from Chelsea that was to clinch the victory.
With eighty-five minutes on the clock, Hazard wrapped the points up finishing with a fine shot from an acute angle.
Chelsea enter the international break in a good position on which to build, hopefully, a successful season.
