Chelsea striker Higuain: I know Sarri gets best out of me

Before Higuain's arrival, Sarri had opted to play Hazard as a false nine leaving neither Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud out in the center-forward position.

The manager likes possession!

"He's a lot about statistics". Hazard has revealed that he is being pushed to hit numbers like 40 or 50 goals.

"In some games we can see we have played very well, with an attacking style".

"It is different with Sarri than with Conte and Mourinho".

"Usually we learn from Arrigo Sacchi", Sarri added. We are doing well.

PSG are reportedly plotting a summer move to sign Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante in the summer transfer window. I think that Gonzalo is suitable for my football.

Higuain traded AC Milan for Chelsea after an underwhelming loan which yielded just eight goals from 22 games in all competitions for the Serie A side.

"My parents taught me to stay humble".

Sarri said after the season that Higuain should win the Ballon d'Or and he stands by his statement, telling reporters: "I told this after the season in Naples".

The children were asked who their favourite player was and whether he was the best player in the Premier League.

There has been little to suggest Kante wants to leave Chelsea, but PSG could have taken encouragement from the positional change and the possibility the Blues may again miss out on Champions League football this season. "Mentally, I think that we're the same".

And Sarri's men travel to Manchester City this coming weekend. De Gea would have won more trophies had he left under Louis van Gaal, and if Eden Hazard wants to challenge at the top of European football then he probably needs to join Real in the summer. "We will see in the future".

"(Marouane) Fellaini and (Nacer) Chadli are from Morocco.

Sarri acknowledged on Friday a return to Champions League football next season is Chelsea's target.
