Maurizio Sarri reveals which Chelsea star can lead them to glory

Maurizio Sarri reveals which Chelsea star can lead them to glory

I think so, but I hope not.

"I think at this moment Liverpool and Man City are another step ahead of us but I think we can improve".

Hazard struck twice in seven minutes just before half-time of the Chelsea vs Cardiff City game to cancel out Sol Bamba's early shock for the hosts at Stamford Bridge before completing his hat-trick from the penalty spot to take his tally for the season to five goals in just three starts.

'When we have the ball in our half and he touches the ball five times or six times, so his actions it shows he spends a lot of energies, and can have more energy in the last 25 metres.

Giroud was the only change to Chelsea's team from their 2-0 win over Bournemouth last time out, and the Frenchman more than justified his inclusion, winning each of his aerial duels against Cardiff's backline.

Freight haulers need to be prepared for many washed out roadways and damage to rail infrastructure across this multi-state area. It is feared Florence could hit the Carolinas harder than any hurricane since Hurricane Hazel packed 209km/h winds in 1954.

Surmising that the decision is Terry's alone tonight, Sarri highlighted his own awareness of what the Chelsea defender of nearly two decades means to the club, and how happy he would be to welcome him 'home'.

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. Playing away at one of the Premier Leagues top clubs, Cardiff would have been forgiven for locking up but they very much played the way they wanted to play. Our target is this.

"At the moment I can answer City or Liverpool". Sarri said his team has the most room for improvement at the defensive end.

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".

"We knew they were risky on the set-pieces and we are not ready to answer". Pedro caused plenty of problems but was very wasteful with his shooting, whilst Giroud proved an excellent provider with two assists but failed to register a shot on target himself.
