Hazard 'maybe' the best in Europe, says Chelsea boss Sarri

Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri Offers John Terry A Chance To Come 'Home'

Sarri, meanwhile, reveals he is open to bringing Terry back to the club as a member of the coaching staff.

Maurizio Sarri has said he has been warning his Chelsea players all week about the danger of dropping points after global breaks as they prepare to resume their Premier League campaign at home to Cardiff City on Saturday.

It was a very impressive display from Neil Warnock's side, who set up well to frustrate Chelsea but by no means parked the bus at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are now on top of the Premier League table with 15 points.

But the Blues came back with a vengeance and have now won their first five games of the season. Chelsea was victorious both times, winning 4-1 at home in the first game and 2-1 away at Cardiff in the second. "But I think also we need to improve, and we can improve".

On paper, this game looks like a straightforward win for Chelsea.


Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri says working closely with Eden Hazard has made him believe that the Belgian is the best player in Europe.

"He's a target man, maybe the best in the world I think", he said during post-match interview.

Sarri has been impressed with the Brazilian defender, as he said: "David has a big future here - he will be very useful for us".

There's a busy spell ahead for Chelsea, which includes their first Europa League games of the campaign and two ties with Liverpool, and so both are likely to see some minutes even if Giroud might have assisted his way to the front of the pecking order.

The hosts almost hit back immediately and in some style as backheels from Pedro Rodriguez and Olivier Giroud sent Mateo Kovavic clear on goal, but the Croatian was denied his first Chelsea goal by a fine save from Neil Etheridge. "There was interest from other clubs, but things were clear after speaking with Chelsea - the club is counting on me and I feel good".
