Carabao Cup semi-finals: Man City face Burton, Tottenham draw Chelsea

'He told me that he likes very much to play there, ' said Sarri.

The 27-year-old's current contract with Chelsea expires in June 2020 and he is yet to agree to an extension as he weighs up his future.

He's already scored six goals so far this season in the Premier League and has a great chance of adding to that tally if he gets a starting role.

'There isn't a best position for Hazard. "He has done well as a wide player, but he showed a lot of sacrifice as a midfielder", Zola said.

"Considering he is only 27, hopefully he will stay longer with us and become even bigger".

An 84th-minute Eden Hazard goal, which spun into the net after a heavy deflection, earned Chelsea a place in the League Cup semi-finals after a 1-0 win over Bournemouth in an entertaining tie on Wednesday.

Hazard was not risked from the start due to a foot injury, but came on to score the decisive goal and is expected to feature when fourth-placed Chelsea host the Foxes this weekend.

"Yes, we are (confident)", Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was quoted by Sky Sports as saying when asked if he felt they were confident of keeping the striker.

Eden Hazard's late victor gave the Blues a hard-earned 1-0 win over Bournemouth and set up a London derby date with Spurs, while Manchester City will meet minnows Burton Albion in the other tie. "I always said that at the moment there are two teams a step ahead of us".

"We need to avoid this as we have to think to kill the match". Surely they would want to keep that one quiet.

Not only did Hazard send us through to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, but he also placed himself just one goal away from a major landmark in his Chelsea career.
