Chelsea Boss Maurizio Sarri Makes Interesting Prediction About Title Race


Voted the league's best young player by his fellow professionals last season, the recalled Leroy Sane needed only two minutes to score in his first start of this campaign.

Maurizio Sarri hailed Eden Hazard as one of Europe's best player after the Belgian helped to fire Chelsea FC to a 4-1 victory over Cardiff City on Saturday.

"'He's a target man - maybe the best in the world, I think so", he said. "But spend less energy far from the goal and play in the last 25 metres". I think he can score 30 or 35 goals.

"But you have to spend less energy far from goal and you have to play in the last 25 meters of the field".

'I think so, ' Sarri said when asked if he thinks Hazard can score more than Salah, Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero.

Last season Egypt worldwide Mohamed Salah and Englishman Harry Kane were the two players that scored more than 40 goals in England. Chelsea are now second in the Premier League with 10 goals, and only defending champions Manchester City have more with 11.

All of that seemed to make a hard start likely and Sarri is quite pleased his players have managed a blemish-free opening in the Premier League.

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.

Chelsea caved into Thibaut Courtois's demands to join Real Madrid, but crucially didn't do the same for Eden Hazard.

Eden Hazard scored his second Premier League hat-trick, in the win over Cardiff.

Despite Chelsea quickly finding their feet under Sarri, the former Napoli boss continues to maintain that Liverpool and Manchester City are the title favourites. "We have a lot of freedom on the pitch, and at the moment when we try and do something it's coming off".

"I think my opinion in this moment, two teams, Liverpool and Manchester City are better than us". "Yes, I think so".

"In the moment we are very risky in the offensive phase but we are not solid as I want in the defensive phase", he added. Fortunately, we have very strong young players: "Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu. and I'd like to give them the right space". "I am very open with him because of his history with the club, he's won everything with the club so it's up to him".

Speaking to Chelsea's official app, The 5th Stand, Terry said: "Still undecided what I'm doing next". We need to keep this momentum.
