Sarri tips Hazard for EPL Golden Boot

The Brazilian worldwide has resurrected his second stint at Stamford Bridge since Maurizio Sarri took charge this past summer.

The Belgium star netted a hat-trick in Chelsea's 4-1 victory over Cardiff City on Saturday and already has five goals and two assists to his name this season.

The Premier League came storming back over the weekend after the recent worldwide break, with 18 of the 20 clubs in action over the course of Saturday and Sunday. The slump from champions to fifth place last season means Chelsea dropped into the Europa League.

"I think he is right, because we are very risky in the defensive phase, we need to improve there", he said.

Cardiff have two points from five games.

"When he gets the ball he can hold the ball and we can go in deep with him, so for us it's a pleasure to play with him". You've got to track and stay goal-side of your man from the 1 to the 2 phase of a set piece. "I'm always trying to do more - create more chances, score more goals, and today a hat-trick so I will try to do this more". Once they took the lead, we really grew into the game and started to dictate. He's playing awesome football and I hope he keeps this.

"Stating the obvious here, but Hazard was just a delight to watch". His link-up play and chemistry with Hazard make him a nuisance to defenders, for which Hazard is very grateful. "It's up to him, I am very open with him because of his history with the club".

"Not exactly the group of death!" It'll be interesting to see how we cope at a packed Stamford Bridge.

"I want to speak with him and I want to speak to the doctor and then I will decide".

"It will be a great experience for them playing in a completely different environment and will give them much needed game time".

He told The Mirror: "Maurizio Sarri says Eden Hazard may be the best player in Europe right now, but not for me he isn't".

"Well this should be interesting". He should have won player of the tournament.

Chelsea should be savoring Eden Hazard's talents while he is still with the team. He also has arguably the best first touch, dribbling ability and close control in the Premier League and, at 27 years old, he is operating at the peak of his physical and technical powers.
