Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea defence must improve to sustain title bid

Asked whether the 27-year old could win the Golden Boot, Sarri replied: "I think so". Maybe he is the best.

"I can not handle myself when we miss simple things", said Guardiola, who said he was "angry" and "frustrated" at his team's display.

Maurizio Sarri has revealed he has warned his Chelsea players about the dangers of worldwide breaks ahead of Saturday's clash against Cardiff City. "He has to improve some things, but he can do it".

There is plenty of reason to think that Hazard is primed for the most prolific season of his Chelsea career.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah won the Golden Boot last season with 32 goals in the league, and scored 44 in all competitions. I should say that, I think he should have won player of the tournament.

He played for second tier Championship side Aston Villa last season and this week turned down the chance to sign for Spartak Moscow.

Hazard's most prolific Premier League campaign to date is 2016-17.

The focus on diversity became ironic as the night wore on, with one white person after another delivering acceptance speeches. After last week´s Creative Arts Emmys , HBO has won 17 statuettes to Netflix´s 16.

Bobby Reid was unlucky not to open his Premier League account as his bending effort curled inches wide of the Blues' post. The last time Burnley lost four consecutive Premier League games it was relegated in 2015.

Giroud, however, said Morata still has a big part to play for the West London club, with both men vying for a starting spot in Sarri's line-up. "When the players are playing with confidence everything flows a bit easier but to bring that flow back you have to be strong physically and mentally".

When Tottenham plays Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday, Harry Kane will have a point to prove.

Maurizio Sarri is not the first Chelsea head coach to challenge Eden Hazard to score more, but he is the first one to set the Belgian such an ambitious goal target.

"Him trying at 50 per cent is better than the rest of us could ever be, but him trying at 100 per cent and really believing he could get up to the Ronaldo and the Messi level".

The Belgium captain received the ball just outside the Cardiff box in the 37th and surged past a defender before driving a powerful finish across goal to equalise.

Hazard could also be excused from the midweek trip to Greece in order to save his sensational form for domestic matters.
