Hazard 'maybe' the best in Europe, says Chelsea boss Sarri

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri believes Eden Hazard is capable of scoring 40 goals this season after revising his opinion of "maybe" the finest player in Europe.

The 27-year-old forward was at his most effective on Saturday, scoring three times in a come-from-behind 4-1 win over an outclassed Cardiff City.

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.

Sarri admitted he is now considering whether the World Cup's Silver Ball recipient has surpassed even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I thought Hazard was one of the best players in Europe, but now I am changing my mind – maybe he is the best," Sarri told reporters.
"I have spoken to him in the last two days, yesterday I told him for me he can score 40 goals.

"But [to do that he has to] spend less energy far from the goal and play in the last 25 metres."
