Eden Hazard ranks Chelsea teammate among the world's best strikers

Azpilicueta has captained Chelsea so far this season, but that may not be an indication that he's Sarri's number one choice.

"I told him... for me you can score 40 goals but you have to spend less energy".

It was his second hat-trick for Chelsea, coming four years after he scored all the goals in their 3-0 win over Newcastle.

Eden Hazard paid tribute to Olivier Giroud as "maybe the best targetman in the world" for his role in Chelsea's win over Cardiff.

"My target is to be the best team in England, but not in one month", said Sarri, who took over from Antonio Conte in the summer. "But I also think he can still improve more".

He played 36 times last season for Villa, who were beaten in the Championship play-off final by Fulham.




Pedro went close twice more once Chelsea discovered some second-half urgency just past the hour. "I think he can spend less energy than now at 50 or 60 metres from the opposition goal", added the former Napoli boss.

Sarri was pleased with his side's efforts against the winless Bluebirds but said reiterated that they were still "a step away" from Liverpool and Manchester City. But I think we can improve.

Chelsea rarely offer contracts of longer than one season to players over the age of 30, but they are understood to be eager to secure the Brazilian's long-term future.

As a team, though, the Blues were not at their fluid best despite matching their best-ever start to a Premier League season with a fifth win from five. Our target is this. "At the moment, in my opinion, Liverpool and Man city are better than us".

'We have a lot of freedom on the pitch, not just the three in front but all over the pitch, so when we are in this condition we just need to take the ball and try something, and at the moment something happens, so that is very good. "Today we knew that this opponent is very strong in the set pieces but we were not ready to answer".

"Now we have to prove that and do it again and again".
