Chelsea go top after Hazard's hat-trick sees off Cardiff

  • Willian I want an extra five years at Chelsea

"I don't want to go there and not have a shot on target, but we've got to have players at their best abilities to give them a game". "Now I have changed my mind".

Hazard scored twice in a devastating seven-minute spell before the break to turn the game on its head, both goals courtesy of superb link-up play from Giroud, who was making his first start of the season at the expense of Alvaro Morata.

Hazard's virtuoso performance proved a study in clinical finishing.

"He can spend less energy than now at 50-60 metres to the opposite goal".

Sarri, asked whether he would welcome the possibility of adding Terry to his backroom staff, said: "Yes, of course, but the last time I spoke with him, a week ago, he told me he wants to play for another season. For the moment, the captain is Azpilicueta, I will tell you the final decision after I talk with the players and club".

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.

Chelsea grabbed a vital second goal just before half-time and it was that man Hazard again.

That is better than the 17 per cent rise over the same period in 2017, according to data from Edison Trends . That said, Edison Trends show Nike sales tracking well above a year ago in the days since the Kaepernick ad.

Sarri has now settled into his house in Surry with his wife and his dog Ciro, who he says is enjoying his "very big garden", as he looks relaxed ahead of what will undoubtedly be a more testing period than the one that saw him win his first four league games.

"At the moment, I can answer Manchester City or Liverpool [are the contenders], he said".

However, Cardiff's failure to significantly strengthen over the summer means they are liable to being outclassed at this level and were undone by the brilliance of Hazard.

Neil Warnock's men have picked up just two points in 0-0 draws with a man advantage against Newcastle and Huddersfield from their opening five games. "He's training with the team during the week, so now he has only to improve his physical condition".

He hit the bottom corner after dancing round two defenders to shoot low in the 37th minute, then latched on to another Olivier Giroud layoff in the 44th.

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.
