Liverpool, Manchester City still a level above Chelsea, insists Maurizio Sarri

Danny Simpson Leicester

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes that Eden Hazard will ultimately prove to be the difference for Chelsea FC against Cardiff City on Saturday.

"Nobody will play the flawless season".

"My target is to be the best team in England but not in one month, maybe one season, maybe a little more, but that is our target. I think that he can spend less energy than now at 50 or 60 metres to the oppositions goal".

"I think Hazard can improve more", Sarri added.

"Now we have to prove that and do it again and again".

"In the period he didn't play, we never doubted Leroy's quality", said Guardiola.

"I am very open with him because of his history with the club, he's won everything with the club so it's up to him".

"Am I very relaxed?"

Should he return to Stamford Bridge, it will be as a member of Sarri's coaching staff.

Everything you need to know about Hurricane Florence
As of 3 a.m., Florence hadn't moved and was still centered about 35 miles (55 kilometers) east of Wilmington, North Carolina. Life-threatening storm surges, landslides and risky winds are also hitting the region as up to 40 inches of rain falls.

Ampadu made headlines with his composed performances at senior level for Wales during the global break, and Sarri said that he hopes to find minutes for the 18-year-old as well as Chelsea's other talented youngsters on the fringes of the first-team squad as the season wears on. "Cardiff will not be able to live with Eden Hazard - he's just so good".

"I can not change my mind for one match", he said.

And the Belgian forward completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot in the 80th minute after Willian had been fouled in the box, before Willian put the icing on the cake when he unleashed a fierce strike into the top corner two minutes later.

United further eased the pressure on Jose Mourinho by ending Watford's 100 percent record at Vicarage Road.

Giroud created Hazard's two goals in the first half following Sol Bamba's shock strike for Cardiff.

But they had to withstand some late pressure after Andre Grey halved their advantage and Nemanja Matic saw a late red card.

On paper, this game looks like a straightforward win for Chelsea.

Bournemouth moved up to fifth in the table after recording a thumping 4-2 victory over 10-man Leicester, with Ryan Fraser bagging a brace.
