Sarri urges Hazard to improve his off-ball movement

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has said that he would prefer more off-ball movement from Eden Hazard to complement the other players on the field.

The Belgium international came to the Blues' rescue with a 92nd-minute goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers to cancel out Raul Jimenez's striker before the hour mark.

Speaking after the game, Sarri highlighted that Hazard is a great player after he saved the club's blushes with a late strike which keeps them in top four contention.

However, the Italian tactician did pose concerns regarding the Belgian's movement without the ball which was the same case with others during the game.

“Hazard is a great player, he can solve this situation, but during the match was like the other players. He needs more movement without the ball.” he told Sky Sports.

Chelsea are currently three points behind the fourth position which is occupied by Arsenal following their 2-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday. The Blues can still close the gap with the game in hand.
