Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard has said that he is delighted to have played a part in the Blues 3-2 victory over their London rivals, extending “great manager” Maurizio Sarri’s winning start to his debut season in the Premier League.
The Belgium international came off the bench for the final half an hour and set-up a goal for Marcos Alonso.
Hazard has been benched for the second consecutive time following his World Cup exploits in Russia.
Speaking to BT Sport after Chelsea’s’ dramatic London derby sucess, Hazard revealed that he is a big fan of Sarri’s playing style.
“It is better to be on the pitch than watching on the bench, but the boys when they are playing they did well so I am just happy for the win,” he said.
“[Sarri] is the kind of manager who wants the ball, to control the ball. I can’t say a wrong thing about that. I want to play and have the ball at my feet. We have players who can do something magic. He is a great manager, like we had before.”
Belgian superstar has registered his 41st assist for the Blues in the 3-2 victory over Arsenal, taking him level with Cesc Fabregas for Chelsea and behind only Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and the Gianfranco Zola.
