Sarri tips Hazard for EPL Golden Boot

Sarri tips Hazard for EPL Golden Boot

Chelsea as a team are averaging 65.8 percent possession, an even larger share than Pep Guardiola's imperious Manchester City, and more of the ball is leading to more attacks; shots on goal are up to 18.8 per game from 15.9 under Conte last season.

Eden Hazard can score 40 goals this season and win the Premier League Golden Boot, according to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri after the Belgium forward scored a hat-trick to maintain the club's flawless start to the season.

Both Tottenham's Harry Kane and Salah have had a slow start to the season in terms of goals.

"I told him for me he can score 40 goals but to spend less energy far from the goal and play in the last 25 meters, " Maurizio Sarri explained according to UK Sun.

"I think [Hazard can win the Premier League Golden Boot]".

Since joining Chelsea in 2012, he's been involved in more goals (goals+assist) than any other Premier League midfielder.

"I thought he [Hazard] was one of the best players in Europe, but now I change my mind that he is the best".

"I didn't play at the beginning of the season because I came back late from the World Cup".

"I'm happy to have a team-mate like that, who pushes me to do better". EDEN EDEN EDEN i just can not think of a chelsea team without him.

Gianfranco Zola could be seen bowing to Chelsea's hat-trick hero, Eden Hazard, during the 4-1 win against Cardiff on Saturday afternoon.

"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". That has led Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri to claim the Belgian is the best player in Europe.

Sarri's arrival (the worst kept secret in footballing history), and his playing style seems to have endeared Chelsea's no.10. "We all have to help him to score goals and help him to continue like this".
