Eden Hazard ranks Chelsea teammate among the world's best strikers

Eden Hazard ranks Chelsea teammate among the world's best strikers

His link-up play and chemistry with Hazard make him a nuisance to defenders, for which Hazard is very grateful.

Watford had also taken 12 points out of 12, but Javi Gracia's Hornets lost for the first time this term by going down 2-1 at home to Manchester United. "I like that development", said Klopp.

WORST PLAYER - All the central roles were a disappointment for Chelsea really, with perhaps some hangover in the squad from the worldwide break.

Roberto Firmino tapped home a second nine minutes into the second-half and Liverpool should have added to their lead as Sadio Mane and Naby Keita were denied by Vorm.

As a team, though, the Blues were not at their fluid best despite matching their best-ever start to a Premier League season with a fifth win from five.

Russia: UK's novichok interview allegations 'absurd'
Russian Federation continues to deny the allegations with President Putin saying there was "nothing criminal" about the two men. In the television interview, they denied they were GRU agents and claimed to work instead in the nutrient supplements business.


But Hazard was keen to praise his attacking partner, Olivier Giroud, for his contribution to Chelsea's win.

Arter was a little quick to the ground though, leaving his covering players exposed and producing some needless fouls. "So yeah, for us it's a pleasure for us to play with him". However, they shouldn't underestimate Cardiff. I thought he was one of the best in Europe.

On where he thinks Chelsea can improve, Sarri added: "I think in this moment we are very unsafe in the offensive phase but we are not so solid as I want in the defensive phase".

Hazard scored a penalty in the 81st minute after Bamba brought down Willian in the area, and Willian rounded off a satisfying afternoon for Chelsea, who moved top on goal difference, with a dipping shot from outside the area.

Mesut Ozil quietened his critics with his first Arsenal goal since February at St. James's Park as the Gunners ground out a third straight win. It was however not a sweet song for the duo as Leicester were beaten 4-2 in front of 10,543 Spectators at the Vitality Stadium.
