Furthermore, the new expansive tactics deployed by Sarri has swelled optimism around the club though it remains to be seen whether their early season form can be sustained.

And the 30-year-old, who was linked with Barcelona and Manchester United in the transfer window, confirmed he is settled at Stamford Bridge and enjoying working with Sarri.

Hazard has made a blistering start to the season, scoring four goals in five appearances, three of them coming in the 4-1 victory against Cardiff City on Saturday.

PAOK, who finished second in the Greek top flight last season, last faced English opposition during the 2011-12 Europa League, and actually beat Tottenham Hotspur in London during that particular campaign.

Despite the pressing schedule, and the apparent need to secure those two players' futures, Sarri said he would not be calling Courtois and Hazard. I thought it was better to have training and rest.

"We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals", Sarri said.

"But a telephone call without looking at them in the eyes would not give me any certainty". "What I mean by that is, De Bruyne and Salah were the best players last season". If he keeps this up, he'll (finally) force himself into the Ballon D'Or conversation. Napoli had to sell Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus for €90m in 2016 but continued to improve for the next two seasons regardless.

"Certainly, after this World Cup, I can decide if I want to stay or go, but Chelsea will have the final decision".

"I am happy with the new manager and profile of football".


"I'm talking over a four or five-year period."


"Put him in the Liverpool and Manchester City team at this moment in time and I think he might be able to".

Hazard is now flourishing under new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri, who has said that he can score 40 goals a season if he uses his energy in the final third as opposed to getting on the ball in deeper positions.

They're still signs the team has tricklings that won't play for Mourinho.
