Chelsea travel to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, and Sarri admits he is wary of the Eagles after they stunned champions Manchester City at the Etihad last weekend.

"I'm happy because he helped us to win and happy he has scored 101 goals for Chelsea, so I hope there's more to come from him. So I think it's very hard to play here, but I think it's fantastic". I want to speak to him only about the position on the pitch.

Hazard has flourished playing in the middle as a false nine, but, despite his excellent recent form, the ex-Lille man has insisted his preferred position is on the wing. In the future, he can play also as a winger, of course.

The 31-year-old alongside David Luiz and Gary Cahill are all on contracts that will expire next summer, but Sarri intends to "respect" the Blues' policy of only offering one-year extensions to players aged 30 and older.

"It's not serious but I don't think he'll be able to play in the next match", Sarri told reporters on Friday. "So the problem is only this, I think".

Eden Hazard has suggested that he will not consider extending his contract at Chelsea FC until the end of the season. "I don't know if he prefers to play as a winger but if he is able to play like in the last match in the centre, for me it's not a problem to put him in the centre".

According to Sarri, Pedro has a hamstring injury and the Spaniard will be out of action in the next ten days, while Hudson-Odoi has a slight knock. "So I am not able to see the problem".
