Hazard can be better than Ronaldo and Messi, claims Sarri

Hazard can be better than Ronaldo and Messi, claims Sarri

Hazard then opened up on working under Sarri and admitted he likes the Italian's style of play. He has to work from the physical point of view, of course.

In contrast, Arsenal's season started in the opposite manner, losing 2-0 at the hands of reigning champions, Manchester City.

'At this moment, in English football there is one club above the others.

Maurizio Sarri will be a man heavily contemplating on how he fields his side against Arsenal.

He told BT Sport: "It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench, but the boys when they are playing they did well so I am just happy for the win". The Belgian came on from the bench during their opening day win over Huddersfield but is now seemingly prepared after returning late for featuring at the World Cup.

Here's how to watch Chelsea vs. Arsenal online. I think he's not ready now for 90 minutes, but maybe tomorrow for 30 minutes he could be used. I think that, in pre-season, they have played well.

Given the ease with which Chelsea beat Huddersfield, changes to the team may feel slightly unfair.

Well soon learn how strongly the winds of change blown through Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC.


And it was no shock that it was Hazard that who was heavily involved in Chelsea's victor.

Another player who Emery has hinted could make a start is Uruguayan midfielder, Lucas Torreira.

Sarri's predecessor, Antonio Conte, complained the 27-year-old, for a player of his talents, did not score enough goals.

Emery also poured cold water on new goalkeeper, Bernd Leno's chances of starting against Chelsea as he failed to against City.

Full-backs Sead Kolasinac and Carl Jenkinson are still sidelined. Avoiding a morale-sapping defeat may be more important than taking big risks, for both sides, and the draw offers a touch of value.

Indeed, while these are early days, Morata bagging a goal and six points from two games should leave everyone around Stamford Bridge, including Hazard, feeling optimistic about the future.

Arsenal have managed to keep a clean sheet in their last two games at Stamford Bridge (all competitions) but have never kept three in a row since 1924.

Chelsea kicked off their Premier League campaign with a healthy 3-0 win at Huddersfield, while Arsenal were humbled once again by Manchester City, but in truth there probably isn't much to choose between these sides at the moment. But the first time I spoke to him, I was sure that he would stay'.
