Maurizio Sarri says City and Liverpool are better than Blues

Winning form Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud celebrate

Winning form Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud celebrate

The Stamford Bridge outfit have made a ideal start to the season, winning all five of their opening Premier League games and they now sit joint top of the table with Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

"I talked with Eden [on Friday] and I told him that for me, he can score 40 goals".

"I think [Hazard can win the Premier League Golden Boot]". EDEN EDEN EDEN i just can not think of a chelsea team without him.

Giroud assisted each of Hazard's first two goals with intelligent lay-offs and provided a polished focal point for Chelsea's fluid attack throughout, but after the match, Sarri - who said Morata is in line to start against PAOK Salonika in the Europa League on Thursday - said he will continue to alternate his two strikers depending on the nature and style of the opponent. "If you saw the game today, you have to say [he believed me]".

Sarri said that when he arrived at Chelsea he thought Hazard was one of the best players in Europe.

"I think he is right, because we are very unsafe in the defensive phase, we need to improve there", he said.

"I hope he can recover in the next two or three days and maybe there is an opportunity that I can give him a chance".

Sarri was pleased with his side's efforts against the winless Bluebirds but said reiterated that they were still "a step away" from Liverpool and Manchester City. I think it's normal that in this period we have some defensive problems.

"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".

"I didn't play at the beginning of the season because I came back late from the World Cup". As a teenager, the Belgian had been a regular part of a good team, but upon turning 20 years of age he reached a level and has been on an nearly exclusively upward trajectory ever since.
