Eden Hazard replies when asked if he’ll extend his Chelsea FC contract

I am really very happy with him in this position because he is very able to score, first of all; very able to open spaces for teammates and very able to come to play with teammates.

Chelsea winger Willian has congratulated team mate Eden Hazard after the Belgian scored his 100th and 101st goals for the club in Wednesday's win at Watford.

Maurizio Sarri has in recent weeks used the left-sided winger on a number of roles in attack and it seems Eden Hazard is not particularly happy with these new roles.

Zaha has been linked with a move to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang earlier this week, with reports suggesting the forward would be offered £390,000 a week to make the move. "Yes, I am a bit surprised [it has gone on this long]", Sarri admitted before adding, "but I don't know the past so I can't say anything".

So Sarri's debut season has included positives. I think it's very hard to play every three days. Ruben Loftus-Cheek has played in eight league matches and five Europa League contests; Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been given a chance to show what he can do.

Senior Chelsea stars Fabregas, David Luiz and Gary Cahill are all on contracts that expire next summer, but Sarri intends to "respect" the Blues' policy of only offering one-year extensions to players aged 30 and older. That's why I find it very hard and anyway it's a story that very much comes out of the blue, no one at the club has any idea where this story has come from so I find it hard to understand from that perspective. "It is hard for this reason but I think we can find a solution". Introducing an inexperienced player at a time when a club is not on top is rare.
