And as Chelsea bid to hold off the challenge of Arsenal and Manchester United for Champions League qualification, Sarri feels Hazard and Higuain hold the key.

Paris Saint-Germain will restart their advances for Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante at the end of the season, Le10 Sport claims.

Chelsea's next game is against Manchester City on Sunday at the Etihad.

Hazard this week admitted to having made a decision on his future, with his Chelsea contract expiring in June 2020 and amid repeated links with a £100million summer move to Real Madrid.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has revealed that both he and Maurizio Sarri "think the same way about football", suggesting that he may be happy to remain at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri says he has not spoken to Eden Hazard about the Chelsea star's future.

"When we have the ball, we have a lot of freedom, not just me but the striker [Gonzalo Higuain] and the right [attacker] Willian or Pedro, so we can move a lot", Hazard told The Times.

Possession! Possession! The manager likes possession!

The Chelsea star said "We are still learning about his concept". I think he is able to react very well to difficulties. We are doing well.

He said: "After the match against Huddersfield, I was really very happy with the result and performance, but I know now we need consistency".

Discussing 60-year-old Sarri, Hazard added: 'I like this kind of football.

"N'Golo's a clever guy, one of the best in his position, maybe the best in the world". Managers like [Jose] Mourinho, [Antonio] Conte, now with Sarri want me to score 40, 50 goals a season but can I do that?
