Maurizio Sarri made a winning start as the new manager of Chelsea by defeating Perth Glory 1-0 in a friendly on Monday. The Italian was without his team’s World Cup stars in front of a sell-out crowd of 60,000 at the new Perth Stadium. The Blues asserted their dominance early when Pedro scored in the fifth minute, and totally dominated the match for the most part.
