The Belgian scored a hat-trick against Cardiff City
Eden Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in the summer of 2012 and is one of the club’s undisputed stars. He is considered as one of the best players in the world after performing at the highest level over the past few seasons.
The Belgium International has scored 103 goals for the English side in 305 appearances. He has claimed two Premier League titles during his time in west London, along with FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League triumphs.
Despite Blue’s struggle last season, the winger featured regularly for them and managed to score 17 goals in all competitions. He was very influential against Manchester United in the final of the FA Cup as he scored the winner in the 1-0 win, helping the team to grab their 8th FA Cup title.
The 27 year old has featured in all the Premier League fixtures so far this season, scoring 5 goals and providing 2 assists. He scored a hat-trick against Cardiff City on Saturday, maintaining the club’s 100 percent record and are now on top of the table.
Maurizio Sarri believes Hazard might be the best player in Europe and has the capability to score 40 goals in a season.
“Maybe,” the 59 year old told reporters, as quoted by Goal, when asked if the Belgian is the top player in the Premier League. “I thought Hazard was one of the best players in Europe, but now I am changing my mind that he is the best. I think Hazard can improve more. I think that he can spend less energy than now at 50 or 60 metres to the opposite goal.”
“When we have the ball in our half he touches the ball five times or six times,” he explained. “So his actions, it shows he spends a lot of energies, and can have more energy in the last 25 metres. I think he can score 30 or 35 goals.
“I have spoken to him in the last two days, yesterday I told him for me he can score 40 goals. But spend less energy far from the goal and play in the last 25 metres.”
