Mateo Kovacic raves about ‘incredible’ Eden Hazard at Chelsea FC


Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has revealed that the players are enjoying life under new manager Maurizio Sarri. "If you saw the game today, you have to say (he believed me)".

"Maybe in a few years Eden can win the Ballon d'Or because he is a very good player".

Sarri can not have possibly envisaged such a stress-free start to his tenure and some of the attacking football Chelsea played here was exquisite - even without their main man, Eden Hazard. We forced them to play a lot of their game down the right side and not the left with [Marcos] Alonso and with [Eden] Hazard who are very risky that side, and they also had a lot of possession because I was not happy with the way we kept the ball in the second half.

As per one of the latest reports by Express, Chelsea could ship Alvaro Morata out on loan to West Ham United in the January transfer window.

The ball simply won't go into the back of the net for the former Real Madrid forward and Harris believes that he could find it hard to get back into the team ahead of Giroud.

Chelsea have started their Premier League campaign under new boss Maurizio Sarri in inspired form, having won all five of their opening matches. "I know the Premier League is a very competitive competition. I know that in the future, probably, I will have to face some difficulties".

Cardiff react reasonably well with Joe Bennett coming inside from left-back to close the gap but Hazard judges the speed on Giroud's lay-off better than Bennett who commits and misses, meaning Hazard has a run on goal to fire home an equaliser.

"The first half, it was clear the way we wanted to play, and the second we lost too many balls".

In Giroud, Chelsea have one of the best "wall-passers" in the league. "But all we are thinking is that with those chances, we could have had three points".

Hazard had the highest premiership goals (16) the season Cesc Fabregas was at his peak.

"Chelsea had a lot of possession because we allowed them to".

"I value everything, he was the modern midfielder and he scored goals and defended well, I don't copy anything from anyone but I like to watch Scholes, along with Modric and [Andres] Iniesta, in order to try and improve".
