Maurizio Sarri reveals Eden Hazard’s new role for Chelsea after Cardiff City

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri will look to work with Eden Hazard to ensure he remains in a more advanced role this season.

The Italian manager has informed reporters that the winger expended too much energy working in his own half.

Sarri has urged Hazard to conserve energy and believes the winger can score 30 to 40 goals this season.

Sarri believes that Hazard must be intelligent in the areas of the pitch that he works, with the 27-year-old expending too much energy in deeper positions.

Hazard will be more effective in the final third should he learn how to conserve energy, according to the former Napoli boss.

The 59-year-old also vented his frustration at Hazard being made to play for Belgium over the international break.

Being arguably the division’s most naturally gifted talents, Hazard has always been key to Chelsea’s success.

Sarri has so far worked wonders with the Belgian who has shone whilst the new manager has been West London.

Hazard netted a hat-trick for Chelsea this afternoon becoming the fourth player to score multiple Premier League hat-tricks.

The 27-year-old has now been directly involved in seven goals in five appearances this season.
