Luiz's future at Stamford Bridge seemed uncertain after he made only nine Premier League starts for the club last season, but he has since established himself as a key member of new manager Maurizio Sarri's starting lineup.

Sarri was pleased with his side's efforts against the winless Bluebirds but said reiterated that they were still "a step away" from Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Belgium star needed just six first-half minutes to erase an early deficit and later returned to seal his treble from the spot as the hosts continued their ideal start to the new season.

"The doctor said we need to check in a couple of days and see how he's going on".

Brazilian star Roberto Firmino netted the second goal for Liverpool in the 54th minute, but Tottenham pulled one back at the death through Eric Lamela who was assisted by Kieran Trippier.

Klopp knows issues will arise throughout the long and winding campaign, but that air of positivity reared its head once again.

"Chelsea is his home, of course".

Chelsea's fifth victory from their first five Premier League matches took them top of the Premier League table on goal difference, but the result did not shake Sarri's conviction that his team remain a level below genuine title contenders.

- Since his Premier League debut in August 2012, Chelsea's Eden Hazard (115) has been directly involved in more goals than any other midfielder in the competition (74 goals, 41 assists).

Sarri is still to taste anything but victory in English football, but had a scare early on at home to Cardiff when Sol Bamba put the visitors in front at Stamford Bridge. However, they shouldn't underestimate Cardiff.

The diminutive Belgian scored twice in seven minutes to send Chelsea in ahead at half-time and completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot before Willian added a fourth.
