Chelsea coach Sarri believes Eden Hazard can score 40 goals this season

Hazard can be EPL top-scorer Sarri

Liverpool and Chelsea set Premier League first with perfect starts

But having started so well this season, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has great faith in Hazard to reach new heights, even backing him to win the Premier League Golden Boot - an award very rarely won by players who aren't considered traditional strikers.

Despite Chelsea's fluency in attack, Sarri is aware the Stamford Bridge team must improve their defending.

Hazard's first two goals came from layoffs by Olivier Giroud.

The playmaker scored a stylish hat-trick as the Blues coasted to a 4-1 win over Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Chelsea's flawless winning start to the season is papering over the lack of firepower from their big money signing Alvaro Morata, and with Olivier Giroud hardly prolific, the big priority in the new year is likely to get another goalscorer through the door - a move for Mitrovic would be surprising but he indeed appears to be on the radar.

The 27-year-old now has five goals in as many appearances this term and credits the hot streak to the sense of creativity Sarri has instilled.

'He's a target man, maybe the best in the world I think'.

"When he gets the ball he can hold the ball and we can go in deep with him, so for us it's a pleasure to play with him". We can cope with the problems with the quality in the offensive phase, but not in the defensive phase.

Should Giants take a chance on Josh Gordon?
Cleveland brought in free agent Dez Bryant for a visit last month during training camp, but the two sides failed to reach a deal. Gordon, of course, wouldn't fix that issue for the Giants and, instead, just give them another impending headache to worry about.

Sarri too, recently talked up the possibility of the Brazilian worldwide staying beyond the current season at Chelsea, saying, "David has a big future here - he will be very useful for us".

The Blues boss has also challenged his talisman to score 40 goals this season, having already bagged five goals and two assists in five appearances so far.

"I'm happy to have a team-mate like that, who pushes me to do better". We want to carry on the good momentum, we are on a good run.

"When I'm on the pitch I'm just trying to create chances, score goals".
