'Unique' Eden Hazard can be Europe's best, says Maurizio Sarri

Cesc Fabregas

Sarri told the BBC's Match of the Day that the Blues needed to defend better.

"I think that he can spend less energy than he does now at 50 to 60 metres from the opposite goal".

Hazard's hat-trick boosted his tally to five goals in as many Premier League appearances and kept him on track to beat the 23 he netted in all competitions in his final season at Lille.

He also said manager Maurizio Sarri, just wants his players to possess the ball and play good passes.

He was quoted by Football London, saying: "I can not change my mind for one match". I think Hazard can improve more.

Terry is unlikely to be returning to Stamford Bridge, for now, but he is working with the academy players at Chelsea's Cobham training ground as he seeks his coaching qualifications, with a long-term target in mind.

Hazard was irrepressible though, scoring twice - one of which was a brilliant individual effort - as Chelsea went into the break 2-1 up and his second-half spot kick capped off a stellar showing.

The tide continued to turn in the third as Nishikori chipped away at the faltering Cilic with a third successive break. But then he faltered and they went to a tiebreaker, where Cilic led 4-3 before delivering two double-faults in a row.

Ahead of Saturday's Premier League tie against Cardiff City, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri explained that he is "open to the idea" of Terry's surprise return.

Asked which teams are in title contention, Sarri said: "At the moment I can answer Man City or Liverpool, at the moment".

"If he wants to help us, I'm very, very happy".

Neil Warnock has stitched together a team of graft and enterprise, but competent organisation and smart set-pieces rarely prove sufficient for Premier League survival these days.

Sarri has handled his star man well, implementing a style of football that suits Chelsea's most creative influence and one which could lift the Belgian to the heights of previous seasons. But our target is this. So, we have a lot of good players, and at the moment we are in confidence, so we shoot, we score. Sol Bamba's opener shocked the home supporters, before Eden Hazard's hat-trick and a late stunner from Willian saw Chelsea cruise to secure all three points.

Chelsea on the other, have failed to agree to a contract renewal with Hazard and he has just two years left on his current existing deal and the summer window is still to close for the La Liga.
