Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea captaincy issue not a major concern

       Gianfranco Zola says Eden Hazard is not yet at his best

Kovacic has started Chelsea's last four Premier League fixtures and appears to have immediately gelled with midfield colleagues Jorginho and N'Golo Kante.

Giroud's hold up play and physicality allows Hazard to make darting runs ahead of the striker, putting him into better goalscoring positions.

Eden Hazard is an "incredible" talent, says Chelsea team-mate Mateo Kovacic, with the Belgium global considered to "play with defenders".

The Croatian's best asset is his dribbling, while Scholes' was his passing, but there are still similarities between the two players a lot that the Chelsea loanee can learn from the Manchester United legend.

'For me in this moment he is one of the three best players in the world so I'm enjoying playing with him. "The stuff he is doing is awesome; he is helping the team a lot and I hope he will continue like that, or do even better because I think he can do better for sure".

"'It's important to keep winning".

Two-thirds of the directors of the combined company will be nominated by Barrick while one-third will be nominated by Randgold. Under the all-share deal, Randgold shareholders would be given 6.1280 shares in the combined company for each share they own.

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard is hoping him and his teammates can put on a big performance next weekend when they welcome Jurgen Klopp's high flying Liverpool side to Stamford Bridge for one of this seasons first top of the table clashes.

"We can improve a lot because we have great potential, but the team is doing great and that is the most important thing for now".

In Cahill's absence, several players have sported Chelsea's captain armband this season but the club's new manager doesn't pay much attention to the captaincy issue.

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

"I've been impressed with his attitude and their resolve, but it's too early to say the sun is permanently shining for Hazard just yet".

"I have fun playing with him and my teammates, this team is really incredible". The fans are great. "I could imagine myself [staying] here".
