Hazard, 28, said he has “made a decision” regarding his future at Stamford Bridge, sparking fear among Chelsea fans he’s on his way out.

But in an interview with The Times, Hazard was full of praise for Sarri, claiming he and his boss think alike on how football should be played.

Hazard said: “The manager likes possession! He’s a lot about statistics. Numbers. Possession. Shooting. Goal opportunity.

“In the past we used to play more counter-attack. It is different with Sarri than with (Antonio) Conte and (Jose) Mourinho.

“Sometimes we keep possession, and I understand the fans want us to go forward [more directly], but it is part of the football.

“We are still learning about his concept. We are doing well. I like this kind of football.

“Sarri is a great manager. He’s an old man [60, meaning experienced] but the way he thinks is the same way I think about football.”

Hazard has had a very good season so far, scoring 15 times in 31 games this term.
