Former England international, Stuart Pearce believes Eden Hazard can score 40 goals a season, if he plays for City or Liverpool.
The Chelsea winger has already scored five goals this season already, with Sarri charging him to go for the golden boot.
However, Pearce does not think Hazard can achieve that feat at a club like Chelsea.
“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.
“Put him in the Liverpool and Manchester City team at this moment in time and I think he might be able to.”
Pearce is surprised that Hazard, who has been repeatedly linked to Real Madrid, has not yet been lured away from the Stamford Bridge side.
“He’s a low-maintenance footballer, I think, Chelsea have done really well to hang onto him for the past couple of years,” he said.
“I would have thought other clubs might have put money down to take Hazard away from them – he’s the one player that gives Chelsea potential championship-winning ability.
“He’s got so much ability, and works hard for the team as well, when you throw that in the mix, he’s one of these that you need to keep educating, keep testing him in regards to whether you can improve him, but also make sure you tell him how well he is doing.”
