Chelsea star Eden Hazard is getting dream advice for an attack-minded player.
It seems his manager wants him to be more one-dimensional.
Hazard scored thrice in Chelsea’s 4-1 demolition of Cardiff City on Saturday to bring his goal haul to five on the Premier League season.

“He touched the ball in our own half six times,” Sarri said. “That means he spent more energy.”
Hazard’s previous PL-best goal season is 16, set in 2016-17. Can he double that in a season?
Probably not unless Chelsea takes the shackles off to the extent Jurgen Klopp does with Salah at Liverpool, but the 27-year-old looked scintillating while combining with Olivier Giroud and company on Saturday.
A better question might be whether Chelsea is the best team in the league through five matches. They do, after all, lead the table on goal differential.
