Hazard can be Premier League top-scorer, says Chelsea's Sarri

Liverpool and Chelsea set Premier League first with perfect starts

The most Hazard has managed in a league season to date was 20 goals for Lille in the 2011/12 Ligue 1 campaign, but the Italian says that Hazard can do much better than that this season. "They have different characteristics, and it depends on the kind of match".

"We are very risky in the offensive phase, but in the defensive phase we need to improve", Sarri concluded.

Chelsea sit top of the table, on goal difference, after a flawless start to the season with Sarri enjoying a remarkable start to life at Stamford Bridge. "We need to improve and we are able to improve I think, very quick".

Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has been backed to win the Premier League Golden Boot in record-breaking fashion after a blistering start to the 2018/19 season.

The Blues boss has also challenged his talisman to score 40 goals this season, having already bagged five goals and two assists in five appearances so far.

"We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals", said the former Napoli manager.

Giroud assisted each of Hazard's first two goals with intelligent lay-offs and provided a polished focal point for Chelsea's fluid attack throughout, but after the match, Sarri - who said Morata is in line to start against PAOK Salonika in the Europa League on Thursday - said he will continue to alternate his two strikers depending on the nature and style of the opponent.

The Blues came from a goal down at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to beat newly-promoted Cardiff 4-1 courtesy of three from Hazard, and a late finish from Willian. In his second coming at the West London club, the Brazilian global 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.

"My target is to become the best team in England in one year, 18 months. But both are quality and we are happy to have good strikers at the club". We knew, especially after the (international) break, it's always very hard to play a good game because you are all a bit exhausted, but at the end we got three points.
