"Chelsea is not about Higuain and Hazard, it is about 25 players".

Higuain's only season under Sarri at Napoli was such a success that he described his coach as like a father.

The Stamford Bridge side are now fourth in the league on 50 points, with Manchester United just two points behind and Arsenal three back themselves.

"Usually we learn from Arrigo Sacchi", Sarri added.

"I've only played two games with Higuain and I know we can do something great together, not only with him but also with the other strikers, the other winger".

However, the Belgium global has indicated that he enjoys playing under current Blues head coach Sarri, who is known to favour playing possession football.

"In football, you can be at the top but in three months you can be nothing", said Hazard, who has three younger bothers, all footballers. "We are from a humble family".

Maurizio Sarri says Gonzalo Higuain will provide more than just goals for Chelsea after his arrival on loan last week.

"I'm not at all selfish", he said.

N'Golo's a clever guy, one of the best in his position, maybe the best in the world. "I want to see him happy, so he has to decide".

"Managers like [Jose] Mourinho, [Antonio] Conte, now with [Maurizio] Sarri want me to score 40, 50 goals a season but can I do that?" But I will try.

"It's about everyone. My target is to help the team to win something".

Hazard stated this ahead of Chelsea's Premier League clash with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City on Sunday evening at Etihad.

The racist abuse by Chelsea fans of Manchester City's Raheem Sterling and the Islamophobic remarks made to Liverpool's Mohamed Salah by a West Ham supporter have been the focus of discussion among Chelsea players.

"We respect everyone", says Hazard.

The manager also went on to praise the strength of character of his new No.9, noting how he bounced back from hard misses prior to his record-breaking season with Napoli.
