Chelsea's Eden Hazard unconvincing when asked about Real Madrid interest

Chelsea failed to mount a genuine title defence last season, finishing 30 points behind Manchester City in fifth place.

However, Hughes is more skeptical about jumping to those conclusions with Hazard still only 27 years old.

Mark Hughes feels Eden Hazard will have to wait until he has grey hair to be considered Chelsea's greatest ever player.

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has failed to dampen speculation linking him with Real Madrid, with the Belgian stating he is happy at the Blues now - but this is subject to change. He doesn't get influenced by the media and what happens around him.

"The key is to stop their key players having opportunities". Sometimes you can score, sometimes not, but the performance is important. "You can feel he was trying to be a little bit nervous about the situation".

Results, however, have picked up since Antonio Conte was replaced by fellow Italian Sarri during the summer.

Jorginho followed Sarri from Napoli to Chelsea, displacing Fabregas as Chelsea's central midfield pivot. "In the last five, six days, he has been better, so I think he is able to play tomorrow".

"Mo Salah was the best last season and Kante is one of the best from our team".

Many believe that Maurizio Sarri has instilled new hope in Eden Hazard giving him a free hand during games but the Belgian has made it clear that it is because of his teammates that he can enjoy the freedom which he does during games. To be honest touching the ball 100 times, all the play going through me or Jorginho is a very important role for him, I'm learning it, I'm very passionate about it as it's very interesting.

"But he also has a big personality, although it may not seem like it from the outside".

Unafraid to introduce an altogether different playing style than that which was employed by his fellow countryman, Sarri's Chelsea have demonstrated an attacking verve that leaves them looking a decent outside bet for Premier League success.
