Hazard As Good As Ronaldo and Messi? Pedro Thinks So…

West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic

West Ham's Marko Arnautovic has been directly involved in four of their five Premier League goals this season

Under Sarri, Hazard may well have the structure to score the goals that move him into the conversation among Messi, Ronaldo and the world's best. "Confidence is up so I hope we can keep up our momentum to win games".

'Every player has to be himself - but for me Scholes was one of the best ever, ' the Croatia global told The Sun.

"I think he's still not at his best".

"It is great for the us that he is in good form with good confidence".

"You just can't mark him, you just cannot mark him".

As Morata and Giroud draw defenders to themselves, they open up spaces for Hazard to wreck havoc and if Cardiff is a good sampling then, this is a master game-plan to bring the hazard out of Hazard.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has a tough decision to make over whether to pick Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud for a testing encounter with West Ham on Sunday.

It was the well-documented moment, two years ago, when Antonio Conte finally settled on the 3-4-3 shape that kick-started Chelsea into a title-winning machine, which thrust the unlikely wing-back pair of Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses into influential roles on either flank.

On the worldwide stage, he led his country to a best-ever finish at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, reaching the semi-finals and securing third place.

Souness said: "Hazard has consistently done it in the Premier League for several years now".

Harris admitted that he enjoys the link up play between Giroud and Hazard and believes that it suits Chelsea better than with Morata up front.

But former England worldwide Merson says that scoring that many goals will be hard because Hazard's game is not simply based around putting the ball in the back of the net. The Spaniard deliver 15 goals last season, but struggled for consistency and has been unable to rediscover his spark.

If he does manage to hit the 40-goal mark - and there's every chance he'll get closer to that tally tomorrow against West Ham - it may still not be enough to close the 30-point gap which existed between them and Manchester City last season.

"The first half, it was clear the way we wanted to play, and the second we lost too many balls".

The trouble for Chelsea is that by this time next season, they may not be the ones to get the benefit from it.
