Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri set Chelsea star Eden Hazard a target of 40 goals this season.

According to Sarri, he hopes to help Hazard achieve this goal target by letting him play with freedom.

“It is easy to stimulate Hazard – as long as you let him have fun,”Sarri told Sky Sports.

“He’s very easy, it didn’t need strategies from me. He doesn’t get influenced by the media and what happens around him.

“As long as he’s having fun and he plays. And he loves playing football.

“But you need important objectives for important players. And he can improve if he becomes a little bit more aggressive and gives the best of himself.”

Under Sarri, Chelsea have played a different style to last season, which has helped the likes of Hazard excel.

Sarri admits he is surprised at how quickly Chelsea have adapted to his style of football.

“Yes I am surprised,” Sarri said.

“I’m very lucky to have players of such quality and we’re very lucky to have this positive start because of the players.

“It’s true it’s a different style to last season but this team is full of players who are suitable to my style of play.”
