Maurizio Sarri demanding more from Chelsea ‘genius’ Eden Hazard

Maurizio Sarri demanding more from Chelsea ‘genius’ Eden Hazard

"If he is able to improve during training maybe he will be able to use himself at 100 per cent because I think that we have seen only 70, 75, 80 per cent of his potential".

Former Super Eagles wing-back, Victor Moses saw 90minutes of action for the first time this season during Chelsea's 2-1 victory against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup game played yesterday.

It is impossible to ignore the importance of Hazard this weekend, with the Belgian in the most impressive form of his career.

Both sides made nine changes with one eye on the top-of-the-table English Premier League clash between the same two sides on Sunday morning.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his side are itching to "strike back" at Chelsea following their English League Cup defeat against the Blues as they seek the ideal response by extending their flawless start to the Premier League season on Saturday.

"He's a genius, technically I think he's the best". It's very hard to compare him with other players.

"Because he has the opportunity to improve more, and he can become the best player in the world. And I want everything". It's a very interesting challenge I think.

Liverpool led thanks to Daniel Sturridge's acrobatic effort, with Jurgen Klopp's men seeking to extend their victorious run at the start of 2018-19 to eight games despite resting Mohamed Salah. Eden Hazard is a special player, obviously, and he enjoys these one-on-one situations or one versus two or three situations, he enjoys it. Aye, aye, aye. And then (Mateo) Kovacic is running with the ball like a Formula One auto and (N'Golo) Kante, don't forget him.

Alvaro Morata had the game's first big chance in the 19th minute, but, after collecting a superb lofted pass from compatriot Cesc Fabregas, he was denied by Mignolet's fingertips and failed to convert the rebound from a tight angle.

United now face a tricky trip to the capital to face West Ham United at London Stadium.

"This is good preparation for Saturday but we have to defend better".

Sarri will certainly be looking to show that his Chelsea team are not to ignored in the Premier League title race, this season.

Watching with interest on Saturday will be champions Manchester City, who are also unbeaten with five wins and a draw.
