Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has hailed Eden Hazard as the best player in Europe after the Belgian’s hat-trick in Chelsea’s 4-1 victory over Cardiff City.
Cardiff City took the lead at Stamford Bridge but Chelsea went into the break leading 2-1 after Hazard scored twice in seven minutes.
Hazard completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot before Willian added a fourth for Chelsea.
Asked whether Hazard is the best player in the Premier League, Sarri said: “Maybe.
“I thought he was one of the best players in Europe, but now I change my mind. He is the best.”
