Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea defence must improve to sustain title bid

Since joining Chelsea in 2012, he's been involved in more goals (goals+assist) than any other Premier League midfielder.

Sarri believes Hazard can become the best player in Europe and outstrip even arch poachers Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah following his three goals in a 4-1 victory against Cardiff on Saturday.

He got an extended holiday from new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri starting the first couple of games on the bench as the Blues kicked off the Premier League season. Hazard praised Giroud's ability to hold the ball and link play, saying: "He is a target man and maybe the best in the world".

"I talked with Eden [on Friday] and I told him that for me he can score 40 goals", Sarri revealed after watching Hazard dismantle Cardiff City with a scintillating hat trick.

Quizzed on if Hazard agreed with him, Sarri said: "If you have seen Saturday's match, then I think so".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has claimed that Belgium global Eden Hazard is the best player in Europe after scoring a hat-trick against Cardiff City on Saturday, September 15.

And having learnt of the tradition in England of rival coaching teams having a drink after a game, he is determined to make sure the Stamford Bridge cellar is well stocked - and is determined to give the post-match formalities a personal touch. We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals.

"I think he is right, because we are very risky in the defensive phase, we need to improve there", he said. In his second coming at the West London club, the Brazilian worldwide has gone from being one of the first names on the team sheet to being a peripheral figure to now becoming a regular once again, all in just two years. I think it's normal that in this period we have some defensive problems. "But both are quality and we are happy to have good strikers at the club".

"We have to improve step by step". As a teenager, the Belgian had been a regular part of a good team, but upon turning 20 years of age he reached a level and has been on an nearly exclusively upward trajectory ever since.
