The Spaniard has only made five appearances in the Premier League this season with newly-signed Jorginho is the preferred option by the Italian gaffer in the defensive midfield role.

The former Barcelona and Arsenal midfielder has also been linked with a move away in January, which would allow Chelsea to recoup a transfer fee. Cesc Fabregas is set to be a free agent at the end of the season and has been linked with leaving to join a number of European clubs in January in search of more regular playing time.

"I don't know the final decision of Cesc and the club".

"He is a great player", Sarri continued. I am not in charge of the market.

When asked if he agreed with this policy, Sari replied: "Oh, it depends". One of the most important in Chelsea's history, I think, so I was really confident that he would be able to score more [from the middle].

"It's a rule and so we have to respect that, I think". For a player of 31 it's a big problem to sign a new contract for only one year. Because, as you know, over 30 years the club offers only one year to renew.

"If he's good enough to play in a big team in the Premier League at 18 then he could be the best player in Europe in two years". "So, the problem is only this".

Hazard's brace secured a vital 2-1 win for Maurizio Sarri's side, opening up a two point lead over fifth-placed Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualification, and Brazilian worldwide Willian was "happy" for the 27-year-old after his landmark goal.

Hudson-Odoi scored his first senior goal for Chelsea in a 4-0 win over PAOK in the Champions League last month but afterwards Sarri cautioned that he is not yet ready for the Premier League.
