The Blues have been impressive under Italian manager Sarri and they now sit third on the Premier League table with four points behind leaders Manchester City.
The former Napoli boss has admitted that he is happy with the record but has insisted that he has to thank the club bosses who gave him a good team that helped him to achieve it.
“On the record, what can I say? I’m very proud,” Sarri said.
“I have to say thank you to the club because they gave me a very good team.”
“I have to say thank you to my players and also my staff. But today I would have preferred three points to the record.”
Sarri has also revealed his verdict on his side performance against Everton amid a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge.

“To be honest I didn’t like the first 25 minutes very much,” said Sarri.
“Like against Crystal Palace, we started the game moving the ball very slowly so it was impossible for us to be dangerous and easy for Everton to defend.”
“Then we played a good match in the last part of the first half and for 40 minutes in the second half.”
“We were a bit unlucky. I’m not happy of course but we are going the right way.”

Selamat Pagi Zoners! #Luharustau!

When asked if Chelsea are good enough in attacking options, the 59-year-old replied: “I don’t know. Usually, yes.”
“Not in the last three matches because as I said to my players, we created few goal opportunities in relation to how much we played. So in this moment maybe it’s a little problem.”
“We have to be careful because in the last three matches you are right.”
“I think we played very well for 65 minutes today. Maybe in this period, we are not able to create for how much we played.”
“For example in the last match in the Europa League we played 81 balls in the BATE box but created only four opportunities, and I think we can do better, but we are playing very well, just not at the beginning.”
