I think Sarri will be happy now- Eden Hazard

Chelsea ran riot at Stamford Bridge beating Huddersfield 5-0.
Eden Hazard feels he and his teammates did enough to make his head-coach Maurizio Sarri happy after Chelsea beat Huddersfield 5-0. The Belgian star playmaker scored twice to win his side full three points.
Newly acquired forward Gonzalo Higuain made his Stamford Bridge debut, and also scored twice. David Luiz added the final nail in the Huddersfield's coffin, much to the content of his coach.
Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has found it difficult to motivate his players after the Blues have had a difficult run of results. Chelsea were defeated in back to back Premier League games, failing to find the back of the net in both the games.
The winless games, and failing to score meant Sarri had to criticise his star forward Hazard in public about his performances. Hazard now believes that he has done his coach proud, and that the fans would now again start believing.
Chelsea have a tough schedule with games against Malmo (two), Manchester United, Manchester City (two) coming thick and fast. The games include a FA Cup fixture, Football League Cup final, Premier League games and the two UEFA Europa League Round of 32 legs.
"I always say when we lose a game, we need to win the game after, and we did well," he told Premier League Productions. "We played one of the best games of our season and scored five great goals. The fans were not happy on Wednesday and now they are, so we are happy.
"I think [Sarri] will be happy because he was wanting a reaction from us and we gave him one," he said.
"We are happy and we're looking forward to playing Man City [in next Sunday's EFL Cup final]. We need to keep winning like this. This kind of game is the way the manager wants us to play," he added.
Chelsea sit at the fourth position in the table with 50 points.
