Chelsea Manager Maurizio Sarri Gives Update On Future Of Eden Hazard

Benitez has urged supporters not to boycott games or protest during matches this season

Maurizio Sarri confessed he has taken one day off at Chelsea - "and I found a lot of people from Naples who want to talk football".

Chelsea required an own goal from Newcastle's DeAndre Yedlin to maintain their 100 percent start to the Premier League season as the Blues ground out a 2-1 win at St James' Park on Sunday.

After a drab opening 45 minutes, the contest sprung to life midway through the second half after Marcos Alonso won a controversial penalty after a challenge from Fabian Schar, which Eden Hazard converted to give the Blues the lead.

Belgium worldwide Hazard has come off the bench in each of Chelsea's first two Premier League matches of 2018-19, with Sarri's side taking maximum points.

And the 59-year-old Italian knows this kind of concern always plagues him during his arrival at a new club, citing that his specific defensive instruction to "watch the ball" and "not the man" requires unlearning techniques previously ingrained in players.

Eyebrows were raised before kick-off when Newcastle skipper Jamaal Lascelles' name did not appear on the teamsheet amid reports of a training ground disagreement with his manager, although when asked about the defender's absence in a pre-match television interview, Benitez responded: "We have enough centre-backs, that's it".

Sarri added: "Doing things this way depends only on you".

"I think we are in the beginning".

The Chelsea manager said: "I am the coach of a very good team". In the other way, you defend on the movements of the opponent. "Maybe I have to do that [adapt my ideas], but I am better when I play my football, my way of football".

He teed up Marcos Alonso for the victor last weekend and, while he has only played 43 minutes so far, only Manchester City's Benjamin Mendy has provided more assists at the start of the new season.

"If [Chelsea] called me 40 days ago, I think it's because they wanted to see my football here, I think".

The next decent chance only came in the 73 minute when Antonio Rudiger created space of himself on the edge of the box, but the Chelsea man's shot came back off the crossbar.
