Hazard Scores Hat-Trick To Maintain Perfect Start

Hazard Scores Hat-Trick To Maintain Perfect Start

Maurizio Sarri has confirmed that he has decided who will replace Gary Cahill as Chelsea captain, but opted against revealing who it will be during his pre-Cardiff City press conference.

Pep Guardiola started Leroy Sane for the first time this campaign and last season's Premier League Young Player of the Year looked more like his old self as Fulham were put to the sword.

Maurizio Sarri has stated that Eden Hazard still has room for improvement, despite his hat-trick against Cardiff City.

The Belgian playmaker struck three times at Stamford Bridge to add to Willian's late goal as the west London side moved to the top of the Premier League table.

He said: 'I think Hazard can improve more. "Yesterday I told him for me he can score 40 goals".

Chelsea are in action at home to Cardiff City on Saturday but Sarri believes they are still a long way from title contenders despite four wins out of four so far.

Five Killed as Florence Hammers the Carolinas
As of 11am local time, Florence was centred about 145 miles south east of Wilmington and its forward movement slowed to 10mph. McMaster urged people in areas under Tuesday's mandatory evacuation order to leave now if they haven't already done so.

Hazard, who has scored or assisted in each of Chelsea's four games this season, took over the game shortly before halftime.

Heaping praise on Chelsea's top scorer this season, Sarri said, "I thought he was one of the best players in Europe, but now I change my mind that he is the best".

On where he thinks Chelsea can improve, Sarri added: "I think in this moment we are very unsafe in the offensive phase but we are not so solid as I want in the defensive phase".

"My target is to be the best team in England but not in one month, maybe one season, maybe a little more, but that is our target".

'We have a lot of freedom on the pitch, not just the three in front but all over the pitch, so when we are in this condition we just need to take the ball and try something, and at the moment something happens, so that is very good.
