It's time for Chelsea to decide on Hazard future, says Sarri

He was replaced by young forward Hudson-Odoi, who has been nursing a hamstring problem of his own and was himself taken off towards the end of the game at Vicarage Road.

Olivier Giroud is also in contention should Sarri opt to move Hazard out wide, while there could also be an adjustment in midfield with Ross Barkley potentially coming in for Mateo Kovacic.

Real Madrid continue to monitor the 98-cap Belgium star's situation, and Hazard has insisted he will wait until the summer before resolving his long-term future.

Hazard has continued to stall on a new Chelsea contract, with his current deal expiring in 2020.

"Sarri told me before the season started that playing as a number nine could be an option", Hazard told Chelsea's official club website. "The club can decide for him".

"But I don't know the past so I can't say anything".

So Sarri's debut season has included positives.

"But for me it's very important and if Cesc will go I think that we need to buy another player, and it's not easy because, technically, Cesc is a very important player".

Sarri arrived as a keen tactician and in the 2-1 win against Watford on Boxing Day, his side delivered a lesson in how to escape a high press. The report claims that the 31-year-old is leaving as Chelsea have a policy of providing one-year extensions to players over 30. Will I sit down with him?

"As a Chelsea fan I just don't think you could knock him if he went". I want to speak to him only about the position on the pitch. "If Cesc will go then I think we need to buy another player, and it's not easy because technically Cesc is a very important player, and it's very hard to find in the market a player with these characteristics". "It's a rule so we have to respect it".
