Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been in brilliant form this season, topping the Premier League scoring charts with seven goals.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has brought out the best in Hazard and the Belgian will be Manchester United’s biggest threat on Saturday.

Asked about the messages he has been receiving from Sarri, Hazard told Sky Sports: “It’s simple – he likes his teams to have the ball.

“If you touch the ball more, you have more chances to score.

“He tells me I need to score 40 goals – if I reach 40 goals it will be amazing for me.

“He’s always encouraging me to shoot, dribble. If I miss, that’s no problem.

“As we have more possession the team are finding me and that’s why I’m scoring more goals.”

When asked if he is in the form of his life, Hazard added: “It’s hard to say, yes, but at the moment I’m scoring goals, so that’s why people think I’m in the best form of my life.

“I don’t always look at stats and goals – I want to just enjoy myself on the pitch. If I can score goals then that’s good for me and Chelsea.”
