Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was all praise for Eden Hazard following the club’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth today. After more than 70 minutes of goalless play, Pedro gave Chelsea the lead before Hazard added a second in the 85th minute. This was the second time in four years that Chelsea won their first four Premier League games.
Following the match Sarri said, “I don’t know if we are able to win something this season, but Eden Hazard is very important to us. In the first half it was very difficult to play – we needed to move the ball at a higher speed – but it wasn’t easy. We needed more movement without the ball, but I think we did well. I’m really very happy with my players at the moment. I don’t want to think about the last four matches – it’s better to think about the next one.”
Eden Hazard himself said that he is enjoying playing under Maurizio Sarri. The Belgian said, “We were always confident we would score. When you’re playing like that you have to be patient. We have a lot of players that can score any minute. We did well to keep the ball and move it
quickly, because we were too slow in the first half.
I’m feeling confident, I’m enjoying my football, we have a new manager and lots of good players. I know when I play good the team play good, so I need to be ready for everything. The season is long, but we will fight to the end, and we will keep improving.”
