Highest Goalscorer Hazard Needs to do Better- Sarri
Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri has said that while Eden Hazard is a great player who is doing well for the team, he needs to do more.
The Belgian has scored 13 and assisted 10 in the league so far making him the most productive Blues player.
But with results dismal and morale low, Sarri said he needs Hazard to do more from a tactical standpoint and stop being so individual in his play.
The Blues brought in Gonzalo Higuain from AC Milan, but they recently suffered a 4-0 defeat to Bournemouth in a match that Sarri might have been figured out by the Premier League.
Speaking ahead of an all-important match against Huddersfield, Sarri said: “I think that he’s (Hazard) changing. He was used to playing as an individual player. Now he has to play in a particular way. It’s not easy for him because he became Hazard playing in another way, so I think very well it’s not easy.
“But I can see that, now, he is more available to play in this way. He needs to improve, of course. That’s normal. He’s fantastic from the technical point of view, and I think he can do more tactically.
“At the moment, it’s not easy for our striker to play in this team. As you know very well… We have a lot of individual players like Hazard, Willian and Pedro, so it’s not easy for the striker to do the right movement at the right time.
“So we need to improve. In the last match, if we’d scored before our opponents, the match would have been really different.”
