PAOK vs Chelsea: Sarri reveals Hazard, others may not play

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard celebrates scoring their third goal in a 4-1 win at home to Cardiff

The Blues boss has also challenged his talisman to score 40 goals this season, having already bagged five goals and two assists in five appearances so far.

The Blues came from a goal down at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to beat newly-promoted Cardiff 4-1 courtesy of three from Hazard, and a late finish from Willian.

"Maybe it's an opportunity I can give him a chance".

In comments made on BBC Match of the Day, Sarri said: "Hazard is unique".

The French World Cup victor proved the flawless foil for Belgian star Eden Hazard and the pair combined to drag the home side back from a goal down in the first half.

It was significant that Olivier Giroud played a major part in two of Hazard's goals, as the big Frenchman justified Sarri's decision to start him ahead of Alvaro Morata.

"I don't know about Hazard. They have different characteristics, and it depends on the kind of match". EDEN EDEN EDEN i just can not think of a chelsea team without him. "Today [Giroud] played very well without scoring, but very useful for his team-mates I think". "At the moment for me Liverpool and Manchester City are better than us", Sarri said.

"We are very unsafe in the offensive phase, but in the defensive phase we need to improve", Sarri concluded. I think it's normal that in this period we have some defensive problems.

"We have to improve step by step".

"When Alvaro (Morata) was playing it's completely different, he's a different player than Olivier, but they both have great qualities, so I'm happy to have good strikers in the team".

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.

'I thought he was one of the best in Europe.
