How Chelsea could line up against Crystal Palace

Adjust Comment Print

Both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have been woeful this season, netting a combined six times in 19 league games; an astonishingly poor return.

Eden Hazard has suggested that he will not consider extending his contract at Chelsea FC until the end of the season. I want to speak to him only about the position on the pitch.

Chelsea boss Sarri called on the club's board to "solve the problem" of Hazard's contract without delay, so that the Blues can plan for the future.

"I can not see a problem of Hazard in this role".

Hazard himself has continually insisted he prefers to play on the wing, but has again moved to insist he has a strong relationship with Sarri and will play wherever needed. "So I think it's very hard to play here, but I think it's fantastic".

A sticking point in talks over a new deal for Fabregas is Chelsea's policy of only offering one-year extensions to players over the age of 30, and Sarri hinted that the club's stance is too broad and inflexible. One of the most important in Chelsea's history, I think, so I was really confident that he would be able to score more [from the middle].

Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has disclosed that his side will be without the likes of forwards, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi when they tackle Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the Premier League fixture on Sunday afternoon. "I will see at the end of the season".

Hazard is not the only high-profile player at Chelsea with an uncertain future. He played four matches as a false number nine and he scored three goals and got three assists.

Sarri has revealed that Pedro will not feature for Chelsea for at least 10 days with the Spaniard having sustained a hamstring injury against Watford.
