Eden Hazard can win Premier League Golden Boot, says Maurizio Sarri

The Stamford Bridge outfit have made a flawless start to the season, winning all five of their opening Premier League games and they now sit joint top of the table with Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

"I have spoken to him and said to him, "For me you can score 40 goals", but you have to spend less energy far from the opposite goal and you have to play in the last 25 metres".

Chelsea have looked superb with Eden Hazard leading their attack, but Sarri thinks his side's defensive frailties are an issue.

And former Napoli manager Sarri believes Hazard has enough of an eye for goal to outscore goal-scoring rivals Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah.

Giroud is yet to find the net for Chelsea this season but already has three assists in five Premier League games while Hazard has found the net five times.

Maurizio Sarri said he will need both Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata on form to keep Chelsea on track in all competitions after Giroud impressed against Cardiff City on his first Premier League start of the season. "If you saw the game today, you have to say yes!"

"We saw previous year Salah fight for it and they play more or less the same position, as a winger coming inside the pitch", Alonso said.

They next face an away trip to PAOK in the Europa League on Thursday. But I think both are important for us, because we have to play 60 matches.

"So I have to organise better the defensive phase and the players have to understand that".

"I didn't play at the beginning of the season because I came back late from the World Cup". "At the moment for me Liverpool and Manchester City are better than us", Sarri said.

The Italian insists that while the end goal is to make Chelsea the best team in England, it could take as long as 18 months to achieve that target with defensive issues still remaining as he overhauls the club's system to a pressing style.
