David Luiz reveals why he loves Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea are favourites to maintain their flawless start to the league season at Stamford Bridge against Neil Warnock's men, who are winless in their opening four games.

Chelsea's ideal start to the season has led to suggestions they can challenge for the title after finishing fifth last term, well adrift of champions Manchester City.

The other big selection question will be whether Pedro or Willian start against the Bluebirds - it would appear that the Spaniard will get the nod having come off the bench last time out against Bournemouth netting in a 2-0 win.

Sarri is known as a heavy smoker and said during the global break his father was trying to persuade him to quit.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said on Friday he was open to Terry returning to the Premier League club as a coach. "My feeling is that we are not a very solid team in the defensive phase, we need to improve and we can, my feeling during the training is that this team can improve".

But in the last 12 meetings, Chelsea won 10, including both previous Premier League encounters in the 2013-14 season.

"If he wants to play for another season I think it's right he tries to play".

"I don't know the situation, I have to speak to the doctor, I don't know if he will be able to play". 'I am very open with him because he is the history of the club.

While talking to the press ahead of the Cardiff game, Sarri said: "At the moment, I can only see City or Liverpool [winning it], at the moment", he told a media conference. "It's what I really want to do".

But the timing of the fixture makes a damaging setback more likely according to Sarri, who said that he encountered a similar problem during his time in charge of Napoli. But, for me, it's a pleasure.

Asked whether the title is unrealistic, Sarri added: "I think so. It's 12 or 13 hours, but for me it's not working". I feel like at home.
