Hazard: Chelsea ‘can do something magic’ under Sarri

Eden Hazard thinks Chelsea can do ‘something magic’ under new boss Maurizio Sarri after their 3-2 win over Arsenal this evening.

Hazard started the game against Arsenal from the subs bench following his exertions at this summers World Cup but made an instant impact following his 61st-minute introduction.

Chelsea raced into a 2-0 lead, before being pegged back by Arsenal before the break, only for left-back Marcos Alonso to pop up with yet another goal to secure the three points.

Both sides, of course, are still getting used to their new managers and their systems, but speaking after the game, Hazard is predicting big things for the club under the guidance of former Napoli boss, Maurizio Sarri:

“It is better to be on the pitch than on the bench, but the boys when they are playing did well, so if I’m on the pitch for 15 or 20 minutes, I do my best,” he told BT Sport. “So today I am just happy for the win.

“I think [Sarri] is the kind of manager who wants to have control of the ball. I can’t say a bad thing about that, I just want to play, have the ball at my feet.

“We have good players, we can do something magic, so it’s good to have this kind of manager.

“I think in the Premier League we don’t have time [on the ball]. He is a great manager, like we had before, now we just want to enjoy winning games.”
