Only Man City and Liverpool are challenging for title - Sarri

Maurizio Sarri said Eden Hazard can score as many as 40 goals this season if he focuses fully on the final third of the pitch after his hat trick propelled Chelsea to a 4-1 victory over Cardiff City on Saturday.

Moses has made just one substitute appearance for Chelsea in the League this season; playing just nine minutes from the over 450 minutes why the Blues.

"When I arrived I thought that Hazard was one of the best players in Europe". After the worldwide [break], I prefer to give the players one day off.

But the Blues had to come back from a goal down to win this match as they maintain their flawless start of the season winning their first five games.

But the Italian is convinced there is still more to come from his star man, explaining that Hazard needs to spend less time looking to take possession off his central midfielders in his own half.

Cardiff couldn't have asked for a better start when a well-worked Joe Ralls free-kick was headed across goal by Sean Morrison and bundled in at the back post by Bamba. He can have more energy in the last 25 metres.

Eden Hazard paid tribute to Olivier Giroud as "maybe the best targetman in the world" for his role in Chelsea's win over Cardiff. "I think that he can spend less energy than now at 50 or 60 metres to the opposite goal". "I think we must improve but we can improve".

Cardiff has two points from five games.

Chelsea have a +10 goals difference while Liverpool who beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the day's early kickoff are also on 15 points, but they have a +9 goals' difference. We need to keep this momentum.

Chelsea rarely offer contracts of longer than one season to players over the age of 30, but they are understood to be eager to secure the Brazilian's long-term future.

Then just seven minutes later Giroud's telescopic stretch redirected Pedro's low cross into the onrushing Hazard's path, and the 27-year-old delivered once more.

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.
