Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink backs Maurizio Sarri's possession-style football at Chelsea

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink backs Maurizio Sarri's possession-style football at Chelsea

Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard, has said that Maurizio Sarri's side can achieve "something great" together with fellow teammate, Gonzalo Higuain after playing two games with the Argentine worldwide. Whatever you say, Kante's the best defensive midfield player at winning the ball back, so that has raised eyebrows'. "So I think that Gonzalo will be important for us".

According to the Daily Mail, Real are confident they can land the Belgian for less than £100m because he will have under 18 months remaining on his current contract.

"Managers like [Jose] Mourinho, [Antonio] Conte, now with [Maurizio] Sarri want me to score 40, 50 goals a season but can I do that?"

"I hope that I am the football father [of Higuain]", Sarri told reporters. "I want to see him happy, so he has to decide". Real Madrid's interest is the worst kept secret in football, with Hazard thought to be keen on signing for Los Blancos.

He said: "After the match against Huddersfield, I was really very happy with the result and performance, but I know now we need consistency".

"He needs confidence first of all".

Sarri's men will make the daunting trip to defending champions Manchester City in their next Premier League game on Sunday afternoon. He needs a very good relationship with his coach, with his teammates.

"They speak the same language with the ball". Sometimes he needs a message from the coach.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has played the France global outside his favourite defensive midfield position into a more deeper role going forward. Like the man who revolutionised AC Milan in the 1990s, Sarri didn't come from a professional football background and spent much of his life as an worldwide banker.

Sarri said: "I think we will be able to fight for the top four this season".
