Sarri backs Hazard to win Premier League Golden Boot

  • Eden Hazard is showing signs of returning to his best form

Chelsea also made it five wins from as many games under Maurizio Sarri thanks to the brilliance of Eden Hazard, who scored a hat-trick in a convincing 4-1 win over Cardiff to edge ahead of Liverpool on goal difference.

Hazard's hat-trick against Cardiff on Saturday sent Chelsea top of the Premier League table on goal difference after a ideal start under Maurizio Sarri.

Maurizio Sarri is banking on injured Chelsea star Ruben Loftus-Cheek to return on Thursday's Europa League Group H opener against PAOK Salonika. "Now you know why Man City and Chelsea I think were fighting over him". We can cope with the problems with the quality in the offensive phase, but not in the defensive phase. It depends on the kind of match.

'I remember in my first season in Naples, the average points per match during the season was 2.28, I think.

The 27-year-old is now the outright Premier League top goalscorer, as well as topping Sky Sports' power rankings.

Hazard has started this campaign in sensational form; scoring five goals and providing two assists in just three starts for Chelsea so far in the Premier League.

Worryingly for the rest of the Premier League, Sarri believes Hazard can get even better if he stays further forward and wastes less time in his own half.

"We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals", said the former Napoli manager. He has to improve something, but he can do it.

"It's still the beginning, a lot of games to play, we'll see what happens but we want to try and win the Premier League".

If Guardiola is "frustrated" after an easy 3-0 win, one can only imagine how Burnley's Sean Dyche must feel after watching his side lose 1-0 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Against Brazil in the quarter-finals, Hazard was sensational, the most skilful player on the pitch.

Aside from a temperature of 27C that will greet the Blues, the 29,000-capacity Toumba Stadium has a reputation as having one of the hottest atmospheres in Europe.

Loftus-Cheek spent last season on loan at Selhurst Park and his performances earned him a call-up to Gareth Southgate's squad for the World Cup.
