Azpilicueta convinced Hazard can be 'the best'

Azpilicueta convinced Hazard can be 'the best'

Ever since joining from Lille in 2012, Hazard has consistently been regarded as one of the Premier League's elite players.

"When Alvaro (Morata) was playing it's completely different, he's a different player than Olivier, but they both have great qualities".

Gary Cahill is now Chelsea's official skipper but the defender has yet to make an appearance for Sarri this season.

He has contributed five goals to that cause, including a hat-trick in his last outing against Cardiff, with his efforts seeing him showered with praise from inside and outside Stamford Bridge.

Up until last weekend, Morata, 25, was getting the nod, with 31-year-old French World Cup victor Giroud - a stronger physical presence - consigned to the bench.

After a late return from the World Cup, Hazard has already hit impressive form in the Premier League this season - netting a remarkable five goals in five games, and grabbing two assists as well.

Eden Hazard is the top pick for the job, followed closely by Cesar Azpilicueta; dark horses like Willian and Jorginho are also rumoured to be contenders.

Sarri said he needs goals to boost his fragile confidence following Chelsea's 1-0 win against Paok of Greece in their Europa League opener on Thursday, for which he was back in the starting line-up. The other lad Morata is desperate for goals.

The forward in question is Olivier Giroud who only made the move from Arsenal to Chelsea in January, but now The Sun reports that Besiktas are preparing to offer the 2018 World Cup victor a lucrative contract, and could even pen a pre-deal in January.

"When I came here I didn't realise he was so good".

Cahill has acknowledged that he might well be forced to look for a new club in January due to his non-existent playing time for the Blues this term.

Sarri said: "I don't know exactly the situation".

Former boss Antonio Conte's final season in charge of the Blues was beset by suggestions that he had fallen out with a number of his players, but Sarri has made an immediate impact following his arrival with an unbeaten start. I understand that in England it is important.

"Your career's short enough as it is".

"I have fun watching videos of him on YouTube".
