Eden Hazard is showing signs of returning to his best form

A hat-trick from Belgian magician Eden Hazard sent Chelsea top of the Premier League on Saturday but coach Maurizio Sarri insisted other teams were better than his.

Hazard has found the net five times in as many league matches, and is brimming with confidence after Sarri told him to chase 40 goals this season.

The France striker, buoyed by the recent end of his worldwide goal drought, twice assisted hat-trick hero Eden Hazard, who afterwards described his team-mate as the best target man in the world.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League during six seasons at the west London outfit. I don't want to go there and not have a shot on target, but we've got to have players at their best abilities to give them a game'.

Hazard is now the top scorer in the Premier League with five goals from five games. Even as manager Maurizio Sarri talks up the contribution of a player, in his prime at 27, who has shown no public indication that he will commit to Chelsea beyond 2020.

"So I don't know who will be the striker of the future but I think both because we have to play 60 matches". "He has to improve some things, but he can do it". "I personally feel that Sarri would like to get the group wrapped up early and although he may field be a weaker side than what we saw on Saturday, I don't think there will be the amount of changes that most people are expecting".

"We need another step, I think, to be the same level".

"When I arrived I thought that Hazard was one of the best players in Europe", Sarri said.

Former Chelsea star Tony Cascarino says winger Eden Hazard has proven that he is "the most gifted" player to have ever played for the Blues.

Minto told Love Sport Radio: "I do think he's capable of [of scoring 40 goals]". We should be able to navigate this group easily and I'd therefore like to see some of the fringe players get a game. "We all have to help him to score goals and help him to continue like this".

"We saw past year Salah fight for it and they play more or less the same position, as a winger coming inside the pitch", Alonso said.
