Hazard's sparkling early-season form, which has produced seven goals in nine games, has prompted debate about his place among the Blues' best footballers.

Maurizio Sarri has made plenty of changes from the side that beat Vidi in the Europa League on Thursday night with Eden Hazard recalled in attack while Olivier Giroud replaces Alvaro Morata despite the Spaniard scoring the victor in midweek.

The Spaniard was voted man of the match as Chelsea battled to a 1-0 win over Hungarian champions Vidi in the Europa League group stage on Thursday evening, making only his third start of the season at the base of midfield. "Clearly if we perform well, ask questions of a very good Chelsea team at home, and ride our luck - then I think we'll go very very close to beating them. Definitely I'm very happy with him".

Brazilian-born Italy worldwide Jorginho starred for Sarri at Napoli before following him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

"I feel sensations under Sarri that I never thought I would feel again", said Fabregas.

"I'm learning it, I'm very passionate about it as it's very interesting".

The clean sheet was Arrizabalaga's fourth of the season and second in two weeks after the goalless draw against West Ham. In a shared interview with Hazard and Jorginho with the Times, Willian explained why a change in training schedules has not left the best impression on him.

"Debates of that type of probably better made when he's a bit older and he's got grey hair like me and everybody can discuss the merits once everybody's finished, but he's an outstanding player".

"I've been very happy for the last four years and a half".

'In football being a teacher's pet doesn't really come into it", he says, "and there's a lot about our relationship that people don't know so pet does not come into it'.

Mark Hughes feels Eden Hazard will have to wait until he has grey hair to be considered Chelsea's greatest ever player.

"It is hard to be sitting there and not helping the team when you know you could add something".
