That's according to former Blues midfielder Claude Makelele, who says that he is confident the former Napoli manager will be a success.

After many anecdotes have emerged about Sarri's enigmatic operation, Luiz has confirmed the mood at Stamford Bridge is a world away from what it was just months ago.

The 31-year-old has been forced to watch Chelsea's impressive start to the campaign from the sidelines after aggravating a knee problem in their 2-0 Community Shield defeat to Manchester City.

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

Chelsea endured a hard campaign in 2017-18 and their dismal performance only helped them finish 5th in the league table, which made them unqualified to participate in the UEFA Champions League.

Chelsea have defeated Huddersfield, Arsenal, Newcastle and Bournemouth, and are one of only three teams to boast a 100 per cent record.

"I think Chelsea changed a lot", he said. "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".

Chelsea winger Willian has claimed that he'd like to stay at Stamford Bridge for another 5 years if possible, with the Brazil global recently celebrating being with the Blues for half-a-decade.

Fabregas could find it hard to force his way into the side with N'Golo Kante and Jorginho also for competition yet he is confident that his style of play will suit Sarri's philosophy.

Although Fabregas only started 25 Premier League games last season - featuring in 32 matches in total - he was still the third-most creative player in the Premier League only behind Kevin De Bruyne and Christian Eriksen, after creating 91 chances.

While it could be argued that they are yet to be properly tested so far this season, they can only beat what is put in front of them.
