Despite naming a team that contained seven changes from their 1-1 draw against Wolves, there was a fluidity about Sarri’s side as they quickly stamped their authority on the contest.

Giroud’s early goal undoubtedly helped but their list of absentees, which included Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard made this all the more impressive.
