Liverpool and Chelsea set Premier League first with ideal starts

Chelsea 4 Cardiff City 1 Hazard hat-trick sees off early scare

Chelsea 4 Cardiff City 1 Hazard hat-trick sees off early scare

A win against Chelsea is a tall order, but if Cardiff has any hopes of remaining in the Premier League, a victory on Saturday could go a long way towards making that dream a reality.

Chelsea on the other, have failed to agree to a contract renewal with Hazard and he has just two years left on his current existing deal and the summer window is still to close for the La Liga.

He said, "I'm very happy because I thought the beginning for me would be very hard".

His form has been ridiculously good and he turned in one of his finest ever displays in a Chelsea shirt against Cardiff.

The Blues made it five consecutive wins yesterday to start the new Premier League season.

But the Italian is convinced there is still more to come from his star man, explaining that Hazard needs to spend less time looking to take possession off his central midfielders in his own half.

Willian scored the fourth and final goal, with Sol Bamba actually giving the newly-promoted visitors the lead in the first-half.

Cazares got into his vehicle and chased Contreras, killing him a short distance away at Bear Mountain Sports , Youngblood said . The video was released hours after the five victims involved in the horrifying mass shooting were identified.

The Blues now have five points more than they had at this stage last season as they prepare to start their Europa League campaign.

And that resilience could yet yield an unlikely title challenge after finishing 30 points adrift of Manchester City last season.

Hazard sent Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, who had already saved two penalties this season, the wrong way to complete the second Premier League hat trick of his Chelsea career.

Chelsea now sit joint top of the table with Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool who ran out 2-1 winners over Spurs at Wembley in today's early kick off. "I think we must improve but we can improve".

"We have got to learn quickly because these top teams punish you", said Warnock. Maybe one season, maybe a little more but our target is this.

However, it was when Hazard moved momentarily to the right that the hosts levelled when he dummied a ball into the path of Giroud and then fired the Frenchman's return pass low into the far corner.
