Souness picks Hazard over Salah, tips Chelsea ace to hit target

       Gianfranco Zola says Eden Hazard is not yet at his best

As it is now, I'm not enjoying things.

The Belgian global is not a clinical or ruthless winger in front of goal, though, if he was to improve on this aspect of the game, he would be appreciated more by a large number of football supporters and he would be recognised as a player that deserves to be mentioned as a contender for the Ballon D'or award. "Obviously I knew that he is a great player", the Croatian added.

Former Reds tough-tackler Souness believes that Hazard is one of the greatest players on the planet at present and the closest star to match the talents of Barcelona legend Lionel Messi and Juventus newboy Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chelsea are back in Premier League action on Sunday when they travel to West Ham, with victory by at least two clear goals required in that contest to life them back above Liverpool at the top of the table.

Hazard has consistently done it in the Premier League for several years now.

"For me, in this moment [he's] one of the three best players in the world so I'm enjoying playing with him and the other players".

Gary Cahill was Chelsea's skipper last season under Conte, with Azpilicueta his assistant; however, with Cahill frozen out by Sarri, there is a huge dilemma as to who the next skipper will be.

Kovacic, who joined Chelsea on loan from Real Madrid over the summer, told BBC Sport's Football Focus: "For me he has everything, but the thing that has impressed me the most is that they tackle him so much and he is always on his feet".

Well, five matches, fifteen points, fourteen goals and I think the results have spoken for itself.

"I have to say also, for maybe the first time in this season Alvaro was ready in the box".

A permanent deal may be struck with Real next summer, with the 24-year-old Croatia global ruling nothing out at this stage.

Sarri said: "I have seen the five matches of West Ham in the Premier League".

"But for now I'm really happy with Chelsea. I could imagine myself [staying] here".
