Sarri dissatisfied with sluggish Chelsea's slim Europa League win

That's right. No gaffer in the history of the Premier League era has ever gone 12 matches unbeaten at the start of a tenure.

"I'm not nervous, I'm excited to play against my former club and team-mates".

Cesc Fabregas is doubtful because of illness, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek's back problem will be assessed.

Chelsea host Everton in the first of our Super Sunday double-header, kicking off at 1.30pm at Stamford Bridge, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

"They still have that Italian base, a defence-orientated structure which is really important to win in the long term, and to be successful in the long term you need defensive organisation".

Few will back Everton to bring an end to that shocking statistic considering that the club are also woeful on a Sunday, losing 11 of their last 13 matches, while there's the small matter of attempting to become the first club to inflict a first league defeat upon Chelsea since May of last season.

Last month, the Supreme Court allowed the use of "green" firecrackers for Diwali , but only for two hours in the evening. But despite the court order, there were reports of violatiosn from many areas long after 10pm.

On paper, that run doesn't look like ending.

Chelsea went straight onto the front foot after the restart - presumably after some stern words from Sarri - and the visitors found the breakthrough in the 52nd minute as Giroud directed a glancing header inside the near post after meeting Emerson's cross from the left flank.

Sarri's side are now the only unbeaten team in all of Europe's top five leagues. "So that's what I did on a good cross from Emerson, and that's what we need to do more often".

"We didn't play very well". After we played Arsenal and Manchester United. I think we didn't play very well, I didn't like the first half because we moved the ball only horizontally and slowly, so it was hard to be unsafe.

Lawrenson added: "It was a good day for Morata, but he has had plenty of bad days too, and he needs to repeat that kind of form in the next 10 games to prove himself".

But scoring goals against the Seagulls at home is completely different to doing it at Stamford Bridge and it is hard to see past a Chelsea win here.
