Hazard hedging his bets over Madrid move

Chelsea FC signed four players in the summer transfer window as Sarri replaced Thibaut Courtois with Spanish goalkeeper Kepa and added more depth to his midfield with the arrivals of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

"We knew that Sarri was a fantastic manager. So I think for his father, probably the Europa League is not important, but for us it is important".

Sarri laughed off claims from former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon that Hazard was being kept like a slave at Chelsea.

Chelsea FC have only lost one of their last 16 home games against Manchester United, while Jose Mourinho has suffered defeat in his three games at Stamford Bridge since taking over the reins of Manchester United.
