Roberto Martínez says Eden Hazard set to benefit from Maurizio Sarri

Belgium global Hazard has been the most fouled player in the Premier League since his arrival in West London back in 2012, with opposition defenders often resorting to roughhouse tactics to stop the talented attacker in his tracks.

Chelsea have won their first three Premier League matches since Sarri replaced Antonio Conte - winning 2-1 at Newcastle on Sunday to follow up victories over Huddersfield and Arsenal.

"Chelsea had Sarri come in and I understand that the club did not want to lose its best player".

However, there's a problem with the 27-year-old, and it's one that will scratch away continually at Sarri this season unless a solution is found.

Former Chelsea FC manager Gullit believes the Blues can ill-afford to lose their prized asset.

Given the opportunity to bring in a replacement has passed, Hazard's departure could prove ruinous to Chelsea's chances of getting back into the Champions League and challenging for the domestic title.


Real Madrid have been linked with a move to sign Hazard over the past few months but the Chelsea FC number 10 appears set to remain at the Stamford Bridge side.

"He is world-class but it would be interesting to see how Chelsea cope without him".

A move to Turkey is not thought to be attractive to Cahill at this time and unless a much better option emerges, the central defender is prepared to try to fight his way back into Sarri's plans until January when he can reassess his situation.

Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso has also become a goal-scoring machine.

'For [the attacking players], it's good because we mostly have the ball. Chelsea fans were impressed with the Belgian as they took to social media in the aftermath of the game.

Drinkwater, meanwhile, has been tipped to leave after also being overlooked by Sarri.
