Chelsea eye recently-signed Premier League striker as Morata doubts grow

Hazard can be EPL top-scorer Sarri

Hazard can be EPL top-scorer Sarri

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. "So I think it's normal that in this period we have some defensive problems".

Chelsea sit top of the table, on goal difference, after a ideal start to the season with Sarri enjoying a remarkable start to life at Stamford Bridge.

Giroud is yet to find the net for Chelsea this season, but already has three assists in five Premier League games, with the Blues boasting a 100 per cent league return under new head coach Maurizio Sarri.

"We can improve.We are not so solid as I want in the defensive phase", Sarri said, citing Cardiff's early goal from an unmarked Sol Bamba. EDEN EDEN EDEN i just can not think of a chelsea team without him.

And former Napoli manager Sarri believes Hazard has enough of an eye for goal to outscore goal-scoring rivals Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah.

Sarri is just the fourth manager to win his first five Premier League games in charge, and is being hailed as a genius for turning Chelsea around after a hard spell in the final months of Conte's reign.

The England global was tipped for big things at Stamford Bridge this season, but the arrivals of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have seen game time hard to come by for Loftus-Cheek.

They next face an away trip to PAOK in the Europa League on Thursday.

Despite Sarri's successful start to life in English football he has repeatedly denied that his side are title contenders, and he has cited Manchester City and Liverpool as the best two teams in the country.

"They both have quality, so we are happy to have good strikers in the team". "I have to organise better the defensive phase and the players have to understand that". 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.
