Liverpool and Chelsea make Premier League history

Marcos Alonso is in fine form for Chelsea

But the former Napoli manager believes that the Belgian star can do even more than that for the club. "But now I am changing my mind as maybe now he is the best in Europe", he said to the BBC after earlier telling Sky that Hazard might take two years to reach that mark. After the worldwide [break], I prefer to give the players one day off.

Having got in front, Chelsea took their foot off the gas at the start of the second-half and could have been made to pay when Ralls and Bobby Reid shot just wide from the edge of the area.

"I think he can score 30 or 35 goals this season", said Sarri.

"But [to do that he has to] spend less energy far from the goal and play in the last 25 metres".

"I told him... for me you can score 40 goals but you have to spend less energy".

Hazard sent Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, who had already saved two penalties this season, the wrong way to complete the second Premier League hat trick of his Chelsea career.

"We have a lot of freedom on the pitch, and at the moment when we try and do something, it's coming off".

The entire coastlines of North and SC , in addition to some parts of southeastern Virginia, are under a mandatory evacuation plan. Moreover, high tides around noon and midnight these next few days will make the storm surges even worse, Samson said.

Chelsea not only kept pace against Cardiff but, through a 4-1 home victory against the Bluebirds , actually moved top of the table on goal difference.

But Sarri insists last season's champions and Champions League finalists remain the benchmark for his side.

That is a remarkable strike rate for a player who had only previously managed one hat-trick for Chelsea and one who has never hit the 20-goal mark since signing for the club in 2012 - with his best return to date coming in 2014-15 when he netted 19 times. Maybe one season, maybe a little more but our target is this.

"In the moment we are very risky in the offensive phase but we are not solid as I want in the defensive phase", he added.

Cardiff had picked up just two points in 0-0 draws with a man advantage against Newcastle and Huddersfield prior to their visit to the capital. "We need to improve, but we are able to and can improve very quickly".

Willian scored the fourth and final goal, with Sol Bamba actually giving the newly-promoted visitors the lead in the first-half.
