Hazard has now scored five goals in five league matches this season, while also providing two assists, and he became only the fourth player to score more than one hat-trick for Chelsea in the Premier League, alongside Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Jamie Redknapp has lavished praise on Eden Hazard following his brilliant start to the season at Chelsea FC. "He has to improve some things, but he can do it".

Hazard himself has hailed Olivier Giroud as the world's best target man after the World Cup-winning striker laid on two goals for him.

Eden Hazard was anointed the "best player in Europe" by Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri at the weekend, something Jamie Redknapp is not convinced by.

The France worldwide provided two assists as he made his first start of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign for the Blues in their 4-1 victory against Cardiff City on Saturday.

Quizzed on if Hazard agreed with him, Sarri said: "If you have seen Saturday's match, then I think so".

In ancient Egypt, sphinxes were associated with the Pharaohs, and were often placed as tomb guardians. Officials have stated that the Sphinx would be studied for additional understanding of the statue.

"I'm not sure Chelsea will dominate the league enough to create enough chances for Hazard to get 40 goals, because of Liverpool and Manchester City", he told Sky Sports.

"We have to improve step by step", said the Italian, who replaced Antonio Conte in the summer. We can cope with the problems with the quality in the offensive phase, but not in the defensive phase.

"So I have to organise better the defensive phase and the players have to understand that".

"Put him in the Liverpool and Manchester City team at this moment in time and I think he might be able to".

"It has always been a fair competition between us and we will both try to step up to help the team reach our target", Goal quoted Giroud as telling reporters on Monday.
