Maurizio Sarri reveals decision on change of role for Eden Hazard

Ngolo Kante’s new position on the field at Chelsea has seen the defensive midfielder firing down the attacking third, threatening with the ball around the opponents’ box.

While Kante has remarked excitedly about his new role further down the field, playmaker Eden Hazard has yet to stomach his.

The 27-year-old has been playing as false nine since Alvaro Morata suffered a severe knock, ruling the Spaniard out.

Hazard returned to playing as a false striker, and although filling out the spot snugly and perfectly, he’s seen his job of feeding his teammates a little restricted.

Morata has been ruled out for a return, which means Sarri will pick him for the role again.

Hazard laid on two assists that saw Chelsea chop the chunk of gap between them and City two weeks ago, a win that caused Manchester City to lost that crown at the top to Liverpool.

When Hazard plays in that position, Sarri says he is able to “come deep and play with his teammates. However, there’s still one bug in the picture, Hazard “has to improve in attacking the box.”
