Sarri: If Hazard wants to leave, then he should

Sarri: If Hazard wants to leave, then he should

Despite a shock exit from the FA Cup and a defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League, Liverpool have been looking strong with the players they started the season with.

Chelsea have backed Sarri by signing striker Gonzalo Higuain, who excelled under him at Napoli, on loan until the end of the season with the option of a 12-month extension or permanent move.

Chelsea collapsed to a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth to put a dent in their top-four hopes on Wednesday (Jan 30) - all the goals coming in the second half.

"Of course I'd like to see him stay and I'd also say that he has the potential to be the best player in Europe currently" added the Italian coach.

Sarri locked his Chelsea squad in the dressing room at the Vitality Stadium for 50 minutes on Wednesday night as he attempted to get to the bottom of yet another limp, lifeless display. "I have to try again tomorrow because I need to understand why, because I need to solve this problem".

There were echoes in Sarri's comment of something Jose Mourinho said a few days after he was sacked by Chelsea in December 2015.

Sanctions could also include US exports of petroleum products to Venezuela that are used for blending with Venezuelan heavy crude. Prices leaped about 20 percent to start the year, buoyed by output cuts by OPEC, Russia and other major producers.

New Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert has identified Chelsea's vulnerabilities, but played down the impact of their current form ahead of the Terriers' trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

So it was telling that in a recent interview with France Football magazine, Hazard was quoted as saying: "In my career I have frustrated all of my trainers".

"Maybe it is my fault that I am not able to motivate them". "He can grow a great deal over the next few weeks". It was Chelsea's worst defeat in all competitions in 17 years.

"There is never a good time (to play Chelsea) - this is just the task we are given".

The Blues are now sitting in fourth place in the English top flight, but they face a fight to hold on to that position with Arsenal and Manchester United both also aiming for the final Champions League spot.
