Eden Hazard reveals Maurizio Sarri's key rule change from Antonio Conte's reign

Chelsea signed the midfielder from Napoli on the specific request of Maurizio Sarri and the Italy worldwide has been key to a good start to the campaign for the Blues. They were fortunate, however, to go through on penalties.

Chelsea FC are in third place in the Premier League table and two points behind Liverpool FC and Manchester City in the title race.

Sarri took charge in the summer, replacing Antonio Conte at the helm, with Hazard starring since the start of the season. "Definitely I'm very happy with him". "I think he did very well in the last 30 minutes in Greece and very well for 90 minutes against Liverpool", Sarri said. It's a little bit late now in my career.

"The way [Sarri] sees football is something that maybe in the future if I become a coach I think I'll do something very similar to what he does".

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has revealed what he did to help Eden Hazard return to top form barely three months after taking over at the Stamford Bridge. I feel I still have a lot of football left in me but it is now up to the club.

"It's my second game in this position and I feel really good".

Asked if he would sign a new contract if Chelsea were to offer him one, Fabregas replied: "Yeah I'm very open about it".

Southampton manager Mark Hughes thinks his side will go "very close" to beating Chelsea if they play their cards right on Sunday.

Highly-decorated Cahill, 32, has won every domestic honour in the game with Chelsea but has admitted he is considering quitting the club in January in search of regular first-team football. I've been very happy for the last four years and a half, we've had great success, won many things.

"I will keep training on the pitch and we will see what happens, if I score then it is fine, if I don't but I play well then that for me is fine, I only need to keep winning games". "I have to change five, six, seven players - I don't know at the moment (how many)".
