Eden Hazard is the best player in Europe and can score 40 goals plus for Chelsea this season according to Maurizio Sarri.
The Belgian attacker has scored five goals in as many games for the Blues this season, including a hat-trick against Cardiff on Saturday.
It is that kind of form that has seen his manager rate him very highly.
When asked if Hazard is the top player in the Premier League, the Italian said : “Maybe,”
“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.”
How good was that!? 🔥

“When we have the ball in our half he touches the ball five times or six times,” Sarri 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.”
