Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri Offers John Terry A Chance To Come 'Home'

Belgium global Eden Hazard scored three goals on Saturday, September 15, as Chelsea defeated visiting Cardiff City 4-1 in a Premier League encounter.

Chelsea grabbed a vital second goal just before half-time and it was that man Hazard again. "I thought Hazard was one of the best players in Europe, but now I am changing my mind that he is the best".

"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".

Terry made more than 700 appearances for Chelsea, winning five Premier League titles, five FA Cups and the 2012 Champions League.

But Sarri wants his star man to spend more time closer to the opposition goal rather than dropping deep to get attacks started. The striker looked rich in confidence after his drought-breaking goal for France last weekend as a pair of delicate touches late in the first half sliced open a Cardiff defence that until then appeared in good order.

He played 36 times last season for Villa, who were beaten in the Championship play-off final by Fulham.

"He can spend less energy than now at 50-60 metres to the opposite goal". I have spoken to him in the last two days, and yesterday, I told him for me he can score 40 goals.

We are still very much in the dark, but Sarri has suggested that we will know the answer soon.

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

Chelsea have a +10 goals difference while Liverpool who beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the day's early kickoff are also on 15 points, but they have a +9 goals' difference.

"We need to improve, and we can improve".

Chelsea may see the best version of Hazard this season, and that will make them even more determined to tie him down to a new £300,000-a-week contract - as Real Madrid lie in wait and ready to pounce next summer.

The visitors started brightly and took a shock lead in the 16th minute as Sol Bamba latched on to a Sean Morrison flick-on to prod home at the far post for 0-1.
